I've never actually bothered to go to the Rose Festival because I try to get out of cities but it's always a big huge deal. The weather might be a slight deterrent but it isn't supposed to be miserable. Expect crowds! Try to walk, bike, or take public transit

Concerns about stanton???
Jeff Sullivan

Pretty low at the moment

Maybe there is something I'm missing, but Stanton generates most of his offense through a small amount of swings. So there's variability in there when he connects or mis-hits

Re: Verlander. He supposedly added a cutter. I have not seen it in action because I because I am a poor and MLB blackout saddens me

I don't see it in the numbers but he does have a bigger curve now

Thoughts on the Reds? As a Reds fan I'm very conflicted. Obviously being bad makes for a boring season, but being historically bad is oddly entertaining.

I've been there ,but let me tell you, being historically bad gets old fast
Of course, there are worse things than just opening up a bunch of summer evenings to other plans

Is there anything Joey Votto is or isn't doing that has you concerned about him long-term, or is he still Joey Votto?
Jeff Sullivan

I'm not real concerned long-term -- few people have hitting figured out quite like Joey Votto -- but I think he is messing around with his approach and right now it's not working for him

will Hyun Soo Kim finally be given a chance?
Jeff Sullivan

I keep waiting
He's earned it, but ever since Rickard made that first impression...
11:21
All right, I need to get rolling!
So thank you everybody for hanging out, and I'm sorry for what I didn't or couldn't address. We'll do it again next week at the same time, and until then, be well and have great days. Happy holiday weekend
