Steady ... Eddie?

A couple of hours after Reds manager Jerry Narron sat in his office and praised Edwin Encarnacion's patience at the plate and improvement on defense, the Reds' 23-year old third baseman was anything but patient in striking out in his first two at-bats against Roy Oswalt and later committed a fielding error.

Oh well. Young players will show their age on occasion, and Encarnacion has played beyond his years for the majority of this season.

BTW, I couldn't have picked a nicer day to be sitting in the chair. It's a beautiful afternoon at the ballpark.
