I am willing to compromise. Janish shortstops for Leake and Arroyo. And OCab shortstops for everyone else. Talk to me, Dusty.

I am just gonna shut up about Miguel Cairo because he has been hot. If they want to give Rolen a day off fine. But I would have had Janish and Heisey both in the lineup. This Washington pitcher has nothing. Early and often is the buzzword today.

Heisey
Phillips
Votto
Bruce
Nix
Miller
Cairo

I dont understand how Cairo makes a good 2 hitter. when Janish palys he bats 7th or lower. Cairo has a career OPS in the .600s. What makes him a better option to bat 2nd than everyone else in this line up?

If you must play one of the worst players in baseball because you love having the worst player in baseball on your team every year why do you have to push him out there as if hes something to be proud of.

You feel Janish should be our everyday shortstop? I agree that Yanish should get more starts but without looking at stats it feels like Cabrera has had many clutch hits and has held his own at defense for the most part. IMO. I feel alot more comfortable watching him bat in a clutch situation that Janish. IMO

I think a lot of us are just annoyed at how little time Janish gets considering the person starting over him isnt worlds better than him. He should start more than once a month.

Dunn's defense at 1st is horrible. That's the second time in as many games that a hard groundball just goes by him without any real attempt to make a play on it. And it's not like the ball was hit right along the line...it was hit pretty close to him.

Toothpick being Toothpick.

I play Rolen in all games where Corky subs for Hernandez.

Too much of a hit on the O to play both Corky and Cairo.

Nationals aren't a bad team, and Toothpick is placing BA and the Reds at a disadvantage in a game they need to win.

Thing is most all major league managers do that...a lot of team's have what is basically their "Sunday" lineup. And I have never understood what makes Sunday's games so less important than the rest of them.

I know this year Fox Sports Indiana is only showing 95 games or something like that, where last year I felt like they aired nearly every game that FS Ohio did.

Toothpick probably not big-time on stats.

Watch him, he'll run Arroyo out there in the bottom of the 8th, and the Nationals will add a couple runs.

Again, I HATE Crusty

If you gotta play Cairo now and then, that's one thing.....but why the hell does he have to bat 2nd? It's a violation of a primary pillar of Bakermetrics - SS bats 2nd, dude.

It's not like it's just today. The Reds offense has looked terrible since last sunday when they didn't score in 10 innings.

Over the past week they've looked as bad as I've seen them look all year except one game in St. Louis. At first I thought it was Garcia and Carpenter. But, this series has been terrible.

Frankie Cordero might be the most overpaid player in baseball. I could get these guys out. It's not like he's facing Pooholes or Barry Bonds or notorious Reds killer Adrian Gonzalez....he's gotta earn his money and stop making these situations so darned intense.

Horrible. You can't get the bottom of the Nationals order out to end a game? You don't deserve to be a MLB closer.

I'm saying that in spite, but this was really a horrible outing by him.

Where is the apologist crew to tell us how Cordero's still one of the best in game, etc, etc now? Man all the butt kissing over him gets old. He's seriously Danny Graves II. He creates his own problems and then either barely survives or this happens.

I would think throwing your bat across the infield is some type of interference. Just saying.

$12 million for a crappy closer. I'll never get over that. What kind of mental illness was spreading throughout the Reds front office when they thought that would be a good signing. "Hey we need bullpen help, lets give a freaking closer a multiyear huge contract! Yeah!" Maybe a strain of the same thing that the Jays thought signing their soul over to Vernon Wells was a good idea.

leadoff walks aren't allowed in the 9th. there's no reason not to pump it in there up 2 runs.

Walked Josh Willingham.

Gave up a single to Ian Desmond.

Gives up a double to Mike Morse.

I have only heard of Willingham and I am an avid baseball fan.

Cordero needs to be strung up the flagpole for this one. Blows a 2 run lead to guys most good high school pitchers could retire.

Should be a dead play honestly. I dont know the rules but you would think if its not interference you could just throw the bat all over the place.

Come on now, you guys who bash Brandon need to be bashing Votto for strking out and not running it out and forcing the cather to throw the ball..Instead he pouts and walks off....Hope he doesnt go on the rag again and get on his menstrual cycle soon, would hate to lose him for another week over a ***** boy stiff neck.

I bet hes had 3 clean innings this year. His ERA is close to 4, with a whip over 1.50

Even better, when Cordero continues to suck we have the same people defending him because he's "all we got." The same type of people that thought Eric Milton was a good signing for $30 mil because we had no starting pitching, or thought Wily Taveras was a good signing for $10 mil because we lacked speed. It's always a riot to see that any time you can look at the other 4 top closers in the NL and see their salary combined is equal to Cordero's. We could have an entire competent staff for that kind of dough compared to his horribleness.

People never have any business bashing Brandon.

The guy is the most consistent player for the REDS, year after year after year. He does nothing but produce on a daily basis.

Based on Cordero's $12.125 mil salary and his estimate of 70 appearances a year, that's $173,214.29 an appearance. My suggestion is that every game his ass gets bailed out after he blows a save, he writes a check to the guy who saves his ass.

BTW Drew Stubbs is making $400,000 this year, Cordero makes as much as his entire yearly salary in damn near two appearances. If the guy had any integrity whatsoever, he would write Stubbs a check for saving his ass.
