vs. LHP Nate Robinson


Game #8....and only Paul Janish has yet to get an at bat or play in the field (besides a few pitchers). Shame.

He was in one of the games that nearly got away last week (Cubs game? It was the one where he and Rolen had the key errors that prolongued the inning for Cordero) so he has been in a game although he hasn't started one yet. I hope he gets to start one sometime soon but if Orlando keeps hitting, I don't see that happening much. He should go in for defensive purposes if we're winning late though.

Why is Bruce playing against this lefty? I thought Robinson was a tough oLHP (didn't they get him from Detroit?) but maybe I have him confused with someone else. Hopefully he keeps his approach like it was last night and stops swinging at balls that are practically on the ground. :eek:

How about short?

Jocketty said something about making sure Janish gets plenty of playing time and starts after Cabrera was signed. (don't recall the quote) But he was VERY good throughout spring training. Whereas Cabrera pretty much stunk up the joint.

.350 in 40 ab's, 2 dingers, 9 rbi's, 3 doubles...only Votto and Ramon hit better in the spring than Janish. I just don't get the snubbing. I'm not suggesting that Orlando be the backup...just a few starts now and then. Similar to the situation with Hanigan. At the very least, he should get some late inning AB's as a defensive replacement. But so far, not even that.

The reds have 5 outfielders, 3 of them are left handed. Would you rather Dickerson or Nix playing over him?

And Cabrera hit a homer last night, Rolen hit 2 and had 3 RBIs, and Phillips mashes lefties. No thanks to Janish playing.

Agreed on Bruce. If he is going to be a cornerstone of this team, he is going to have to learn to hit lefties, and he was starting to show life last night, let's see if he can keep it going.

BTW I do not hate the line-up tonight. I guess I will have that feeling frequently if these 8 guys get every start against lefties.

That's great.So when when Cabrera or Rolen has to miss time Dusty should just throw Janish in there after not having seen a pitch since ST and expect that he will just pick up where he left off.

I understand why people don't like the guy but you can't just completely forget about him when he's likely to see the bulk of PT if Rolen or Cabrera gets banged up.

In front of the yellow pole and what was the angle? I guess the FSN view was kind of far away (from the right field seats, the foul side of the pole) but when the ball passed the pole it disappeared, seemingly.

It was from the foul side of first base, it was from down the line toward home plate. I would have guessed the camera was from right around 1st base.

Maybe it just looked like it went behind the pole because of how far the FSN Ohio camera was away. But you can clearly see the ball pass in front of the pole, and I have a hard time believing anything otherwise because of how obvious it was.

Hanigan now has more than 1/3 of the RBI's he had all of last season.

I'll say it again, last year he pressed in those situations, I think he'll be fine there from here on out.

He's got 4 on the year, but 11 last season. Of course the 11 took 250 ab's. :O)

Anyone remember if Arroyo was consistently below 90 mph on Sunday?I haven't been paying the closest attention but haven't noticed Bronson over 90 yet today.Seemed like last year he had his best stuff when his FB was over 90.His still looks good but was just wondering if BA has lost a few MPH on his FB.
