I wish Heisey would get some playing time. He's a better all around hitter than Nix.

Not enough Veteran Creaminess. Everybody knows that. You are right. You would think that Heisey has done enough to earn more playing time. Welcome to Dusty's Playhouse.

I saw where someone mentioned Jay's swing seemed to be getting a little long again. That's the sign to me of a guy trying to do too much or getting a little tired. Probably the former... don't know why he'd be getting any more wore out physically than Votto or Phillips, unless he has some poor eating habits or something. Either way, I say give him a day off ASAP. You do have that luxury when you have a guy like Heisey playing well.

Still like the fight we're showing. Yes it's the Indians and they lost 4 in a row, but we lost in a horrible way yesterday (which still makes me mad).

Fall behind, tie it up then take the lead.

Lose the lead, let them tie it up.

Very next time at the plate, score 2 to again take the lead.

Now we just need to work on not losing the lead. Add on would be nice too.

Bronson is exhibit A of how a guy with middling stuff but above average, maybe well above average, pitching acumen can make major league hitters look silly when he hits his spots. And also how he can serve up batting practice when he misses his spots.

I don't know why Jay doesn't just drop a bunt down... especially when the buys in the 2 spots behind him are hot. I guess he wants to break out of his slump with a "real hit", so he grounds into an inning ending DP. Hit it hard anyway. He's hit it hard 2 times tonight, but nothing to show for it.

No I didnt miss it. Votto hits lefties pretty darn well so basically it only means the pitcher sees 1. Votto hits lefties better than most righties you have on the team anyways so why worry about the split?

We need to get a petition and movement going. The Cardinals are at home tonight. But we need fans in every ballpark to bring signs of babies crying to display every time the Cardinals go on the road. Get the scoreboard operator in on the act. Then every time a Cardinal steps to the plate, steps on the mound to start an inning, comes out of the bullpen, whatever, signs go up, crying baby shows up on the scoreboard, etc.

Whatever it takes, we must break them.

Naturally, there would be additional sound effects for Pujols, with sounds of a baby crying as well as the pictures.

thats fine im just wondering why you worry about the splits when it comes to votto. If Bruce and Votto hit back to back its not like its 2 guys who struggle against the lefties. Splitting the lefties doesnt matter much in Vottos case.

Id worry about splitting the righties in a Votto, Rolen, RH bat, Bruce situation more than worrying about Votto, Rolen, Bruce and the lefty.

You don't really construct your lineup based on what lefthander might come out of the bullpen though. If you do your business against the starting pitcher and your starting pitcher does his job, it's all rather meaningless.
