The Reds are playing the Brewers this afternoon. They just finished the first inning. Here is the Gameday link. Also free radio broadcasting through the MLB site.
In the first inning, Shin-Soo Choo walked and scored from third base on Joey Votto’s ground ball out. In three games, Choo has already walked and scored more than Willy Taveras did in 400 AB for the Reds (at least it feels that way).
Finally, a lead-off hitter who gets on base by the walk.
If Choo stays healthy, he’ll score 100 runs this year, easy.
UPDATE: Spring is in the air (Votto home run video, courtesy of the Enquirer.)
