  1. Chris and I had a great discussion…but he was driving to St. Louis and the call got dropped a couple of times, I apologize for the interruptions and the abrupt ending….and many thanks to Chris (as always) for being so generous with his valuable time.

  2. Great comments on Votto’s approach at the plate. One of my favorite things about Votto is how pissed off he gets after a strikeout. Great competitor, MVP all the way

  3. “OC got them where they are”…? Really. In my mind they got there in spite of OC. And what about where they’ve gotten since Janish took over at short. “OC doesn’t get to as many ball, but he’s made some pretty good plays on the balls he’s gotten to.” Nice endorsement by Welsh. πŸ˜•

    So Dusty’s making decisions with playoff implications from his belief in Karma now? I prefer using the force to help me make decisions. πŸ˜‰

    Love The Creeper though. Nice interview Bill.

  4. Love Janish, and he clearly is the best defensive option at short. Still, his numbers are starting to slide, he’s hitting .190 over his last 12 games (8-42) and his average has dropped from .292 to .265 in that time. Definite concern over diminishing marginal returns here as his hot start fades and he begins to hit more like a utility bench infielder. Factoring in Cabrera’s postseason experience as we head towards October, I don’t have too much of an issue with throwing OC right back in there and keeping Janish as a late-inning defensive sub.

  5. Oddly, you don’t see the Scott Rolen argument paraded out for Paul Janish: Reds record since he became the everyday SS: 18-8.

    So who “got them there,” anyway?

    Also, Cabrera in 144 career post-season PA: .234 .297 .312 .609

    Pass.

  6. @bho52: I hear you, and that is alarming, but everyone slumps. IMO, SS is a position you should value a player’s defensive skills slightly over batting. Janish can’t be an empty jersey in the lineup, but OC hasn’t exactly been solid at the plate either.

  7. @TC:
    In addition to the fact that Janish played every inning at SS the entire time that Cabrera was out, which could very well have led to fatigue resulting in slumping numbers.

    Thanks for the compliment, but Chris is an great subject, he tells you what he thinks, no doubt about it. Nice guy too.
