Lineup courtesy of Fay:



The Reds are going with a heavily right-handed lineup agianst Oliver Perez and the Mets tonight:


Drew Stubbs 8
Brandon Phillips 4
Joey Votto 3
Scott Rolen 5
Jonny Gomes 7
Orlando Cabrera 6
Chris Heisey 9
Ramon Hernandez 2
Mike Leake 1


This, of course, will be Heisey big league debut. Oddly, he hit left-handers much better than right-handers at Louisville before his callup. Pretty small sample size, though.

Stubbs!!! Home run!!

You almost don't want to see that, as it will continue to self-justify his overswinging ways.

It's like your power forward hitting his 1st 3 pointer of the game, when he's a 20% career shooter. Get down low where your bread and butter are, and quit trying to be someone you're not.

_Sir_Charles_
05-03-2010, 08:29 PM
I don't get all the grumbling about Stubbs at this point. He may have only had 1 hit in the St. Louis series, but he still smoked the ball. And he hit well in the previous series in Houston. It's not like there are better options. Stick him in there everyday and give him time to adjust.

The pitchers have adjusted to him, now it's time to give him time to re-adjust.

_Sir_Charles_
05-03-2010, 08:30 PM
And with that...he misplays a ball in center. Well, I'm a good luck charm. *sigh*

Defense not exactly helping Leake here. Another run scores due to error. 2-2 ballgame after the 2 bagger by Reyes

Of course it shouldn't have mattered...he was out on the pickoff and then he was nailed on the throw by Hernandez if Cabrera knew what that leather thing was on the end of his arm.

Disagree with the CF hole though. Solid D (other than rare exception today), excellent baserunning, and hitting the ball with authority. Give the kid time and the results will come IMO.

Heck, Mike Leake should have been left up to hit, even if he wasn't going to pitch the 7th.

Probably good that Leake came out. Six competitive innings are enough. But Reds bullpen does not instill confidence in this situation.

_Sir_Charles_
05-03-2010, 10:07 PM
Herrera in. Now I love Danny, but this is a bad choice here. Danny should be coming in after a hard thrower IMO. The mets have been seeing breaking pitches all night from Leake...it should make it easier to time the soft stuff from Herrera.

Hopefully I'm wrong.

05-03-2010, 10:10 PM
Herrera has been scuffling of late. He's pitched a lot of games, maybe a few days off would be wise.

But guess what, even with him allowing 6 runs through 5...the Bats are STILL up by TWELVE! 18 to 6. I guess they want to break that losing streak pretty bad.

As talented as the Bats (and the rest of our farm system) seems to be, their w/l record sure leaves alot to be desired (and the rest of the farm too).

Ridiculously early opinion on Heisey? I don't see how he can be a successful major league hitter holding his hands that high in his stance. He is going to pop everything up.

Heisey's 0 for 5? who would have thought it? after all his 307/430/747 line in AAA screamed 'All Star' !

p.s. - Bruce didn't start vs Perez. I'm ok with that. but why is Bruce out of the game when Heisey & Gomes still are playing? I am looking forward to 2011.

Francisco needs to take some walks before he's ready to come back. Dorn on the other hand is intriguing. They'd have to clear 40 man room for him though.

Leake really did look good. This was our first time seeing him pitch and we were very impressed. I wasn't a fan of the strike zone to start with, but the ump was consistent throughout pretty much the whole game. Leake worked with it.

Glad to see Massett get the win. He pitched superbly too. Really, the whole staff did overall.

I agree about Cabrera. Ugh. I've been to two games and in each game he had two times he didn't get to balls that I'm sure Janish would have. He really brings nothing to the time. My daughter suspects that Janish is locked in a trunk somewhere deep inside GABP. I think he's in the Witness Protection Program. Regardless, the club needs to send a search party out for him and he needs to get some playing time. Particularly, as someone else noted, when Leake pitches. If we want the ball on the ground, instead of in the air where Mother Nature can fly them out of the field, then we need a shortstop who can get to balls.

Will it ever be possible for Brandon Phillips to just hit the ball and not try to crush it? His AB in extra innings was so utterly predictable, a might swing right through the air. Brandon, just a base knock there, buddy. Don't make an out and let the guys behind you knock the runs in.

That was a fun game.

Orlando Cabrera must hate Mike Leake though. In his last start there were two balls he should have had that went for hits against Leake and then last night after Stubbs error there was the ground ball that he should have at least knocked down that drove in Davis. Then of course the throw from Hernandez.

I'm not saying he's not giving the effort, I just think it's pretty clear Father Time has grabbed a hold of his legs.
