Batting success

The Reds are up 8-1 and have 12 hits so far. Pretty strong.

Don't underestimate the value of patience and the walks in this lineup. The hits are largely a factor of making the pitcher throw strikes to hack away at, or take the walk. Edwin probably leads the NL in walks right now.

We are unstoppable Sharon!!!

Pitching, hitting, it is all clicking right now!

Not to mention we are in the process or potentially taking 5 of 7 from two division winners to start the season!!!

Good hitting today, Keppinger, need I say more? Love the way Dunner is hitting too, when his long ball shows up hell be scary.

Its amazing how when you get some good pitching, and can get a lead, your offense loosens up and does what the Reds did today.

Like the way Dusty has managed today, handling of the pitchers specifically.

John, do you think Dusty pulled Votto because he muffed the DP ball, or just to get the double switch in. Couldnt he do that between innings?

Keppinger looked great, 3-for-5 could have easily been 5-for-5.

Votto got taken out as a double switch. The pitcher's spot was up next.
