  1. Hey Matt did you know according too Wikipedia that Joey Votto has a dog named Maris?

    I got to watch the 7th inning forward yesterday an in the bottom of that inning after Jorge hit into a predictable double play pinch hitting for Montero the crowd started chanting Jorge sucks…..last night I wanted to make sure what I heard during the live broadcast was correct but YES skipped the bottom of the 7th during the repeat showing of the game.

    • Dan…
      This is what happens to the great or near great players that stay too long….even the great Mickey heard a few boos in his last year or so!
      I didn’t and don’t want to go through that with the guys we have now…Jeter, Posada and Mo, well let’s add A-Rod also!
      Guys, get your records and get out!
