Still think they shoulda sat Bruce in favor of Heisey. Maybe that's tomorrow... That being said... Bruce goes 3-5 with a Double, a HR and 3 RBI's...

Dusty wont sit Nix now that hes hot. Its all he was waiting for. Calm Heiseys bat as much as possible to give Nix the chance to get hot. Now that it is Heisey can sit the bench even longer since Dusty has an excuse.

Gotta figure with Huff, a lefty going tomorrow, one would think Heisey would get a start. Who knows.. Perhaps lef Ramon play 1st, Hanigan catch, Gomes play left, and Votto get a day off from the field and DH..

Why be so quick to bench one of your best hitters because of three bad games? Besides, lefties hit 50 pts better against Carmona so sitting Heisey is fine by me today. I want to see Heisey get the call to start more often too, but you've gotta pick the right spots. Day game tomorrow against Huff (LHP) means Heisey will get the call.

History Dictates with Jay when he is swinging at breaking balls in the dirt and at the alarming rate he is doing so, he is falling into a slump where he isn't seeing the ball so well. Maybe tonight he comes out of it. But if not, he defiantly has to sit tomorrow. 7 games against Houston and Pittsburgh at home should fix what ails him...

It was only a 4-run game. Leading off was a switch hitter who was weak against lefties, Choo (lefty), Kearns (righty), Hafner (lefty). Rhodes was unavailable. Pretty easy decision to put in your lefty specialist.

Silly. We are now looking at masset being in 4 in a row, Cordero in 3. If we need Cordero tomorrow its just putting youself in a bad spot for tomorrow where you have a chance to avoid it.

CWRed

I will say that Cordero is actually and has been very good. He is being misused horribly. Everyone knows he is terrible 3 days in a row and worse 4 days in a row, yet Dusty (I hate him) hasn't gotten the memo dude. Coco's confidence has to be shot as well as the team's confidence in him but Dusty is to blame here. Just like he let Lincoln come in for a third inning (idiotic) the other night and only letting Owings pitch one inning tonight (dumber?). Unless Owings was tired he should have gone 3 if he was able. That's what he is supposed to be there for according to Dusty "IQ of 3" Baker.

And Masset is bing overused terribly as well. Either use the other guys or bring up someone else you idiot Dusty! You can't get by with 2-3 guys. Let Rhodes pitch to more than lefties and you'll be ok. Win 2 games rather easily and the bullpen is shot? Only Dusty Baker. And maybe Jerry Manuel.

Reds win! Reds win. I love you Dusty Baker. :bang:

The problem is hes been bad, and when hes bad he burns up quickly. Hes pitching fine for a 6th 7th inning guy but once he starts getting hit it blows up quickly.

Basically use him correctly and no one will complain. Its when Dusty does things like brings him out for 3 innings is where people get annoyed.

regarding tomorrows affair, we face Huff and we should be able to keep the bats poppin' :
