Jonny Gomes DH,

Jay Bruce 9,

Laynce Nix 7

Ramon hernandez 2

Sam LeCure P

vs. RHP Felix Hernandez (4-5, 3.61)

I got PBP, at least to start out.

I had a feeling there would be a lineup change after last night but I'm bummed Heisey isn't getting another chance tonight. I guess Laynce needs some PAs but I hope Dusty will give Heisey another game or two during this trip through the AL while he has a chance to get some extra players in the game. Glad to see Ramon is all right to play tonight. :)

I mean is it really hard to ask for competent umpires? I'm not asking for perfection. I'm asking for umpires that don't anticipate things and make the right calls. That umpire assumed that Figgins was going to avoid the tag because of his pop up slide and he blew the call.

Getting out of hand in MLB.

It's just that these trips (or is it just June) have ended promising Reds seasons in the past. Not only do they lose the actual games, but they are thrust deeply into slides of which they don't recover from until it's too late.

Yeah I know. Like I said, the timing REALLY stinks. But if the Reds can still manage to go just 2-2 in the next 4 games on this trip I'd be ok with that. Not thrilled but considering the history of the Reds (and other teams) in making left coast trips you just can't expect too much.

The Reds will have 17 games in a row (including the Cleveland series) before the all-star break. And how they do in THOSE 17 games will be very important. It's one thing if they're not in 1st place at the break. But they just CAN'T fall TOO much behind.
