Wow, you can tell Dusty was pissed that Stubbs didn't get that bunt down. First he said, "that was a perfect pitch to bunt", then the next game he sits him. Good, I wouldn't mind Heisey getting an extended look. Stubbs certainly has, don't just yank Heisey if he has a bad game. See what happens if he plays everyday for 3 weeks.

People will point to the 3 homer game, but that isn't a sign of improvement, just an aberration. Stubbs should be hitting line drives, ground balls and bunts. He should shorten his swing and use his speed and be able to go deep into counts and take walks. Instead he has a long, looping swing. Sure, he may make contact and he's strong enough to hit some home runs when he does make contact. But, long term success is raising his OBP, and using his speed. Neither of which he's shown me he will do.

I'm just saying if I see another long, looping swing from Stubbs with an uppercut it will be too soon.

Stubbs riding the bench was a no-brainer today after those two errors yesterday. The bunt was horrible execution. I think my 10 y.o. cousin could tell him why he botched that suicide squeeze. The baserunning mistake on the hit and run was even worse, he's just lucky it didn't cost us a run.

I don't know why I would be surprised at this point, but maybe surprise isn't even the right word. But like I said last night, Keels is something else. Heisey is way ahead of a diving 82 mph change up, as he was the previous at bat, and Keels says he's late on the heater from Blanton.

I was in radio for a while, albeit as more of a DJ/AM show host and board op, but I really think I might be able to do at least as good as Keels calling a game. Or at least I sure as heck hope I could do a lot better, honestly.

While Leake is only 27 pitches through 3 innings while having given up 2 hits, Volquez is at 49 pitches through 3 innings without giving up a hit.

He and Cueto just aren't efficient pitchers. Maybe one day they'll get there, but so far they just aren't.

It was easier to Walk Votto and then pick him off of first, then take a chance on him hitting a homerun.

I think he was banking on Phils throwing it to home plate.

I don't think you can blame a baserunning coach for this stuff. These guys are major leaguers. That stuff should be second nature at this point. To me a big league baserunning coach's only duty is to keep the players informed on opposing pitchers, catchers and outfield arms.

Cabrera needs to take a long, long break. Like for the next two games for sure. In the second half, he should be playing no more than 3 out of 5 games. Of course this will never happen.

Somebody on the coaching staff or another player or someone from the FO needs to tell Dusty that he's tired. Everyone can see it but Dusty I think.
