    Three Reds in the Starting Lineup, I knew you didn’t loose your roots

    Not sure about Gomes though. Production was terrible after June 12th’s 2 HR 2 HBP game. Went from batting .310 to .280 in three weeks. Not sure if has adjusted to playing everyday.

    I agree with Pujols at 1B, but if the season ended today, is there a better NL MVP canidate (of position players) then Joey Votto?

      No question Joey Votto is an MVP candidate.
      If the season ended today, he gets my vote.

      I’m sticking by Gomes:
      -19 multi-hit games
      -RBI every 4.6 at-bats
      -batting above .400 with RISP
