    Eric Karabell

  6. What to do with Joey Votto

    Eric Karabell

    The Cincinnati Reds lost another close game Wednesday, as San Francisco Giants right-hander Ryan Vogelsong -- not exactly Roger Clemens -- registered a career-best nine strikeouts in a 3-2 win, and they're now closer to last place in the NL Central t...
