Thu lineup vs. WASH

Phillips 4
Cabrera 6
Bruce 9
Gomes 7
Hernandez 3
Stubbs 8
Cairo 5
Hanigan 2
Volquez 1

Bruce in the three hole. Nice. I think he is coming out of his slump. I am predicting JB goes deep today.

Bruce hitting with someone behind him might be nice to see for once.

Hernandez started the year en fuego but has slowly been coming back down to earth. His last start was nice but the two before that were shaky. He is a flyball pitcher and in this park that could spell trouble.

Cairo 1 for 12 against Livan? that's not very good

perhaps janish should be given a shot... i guess cairo has been hot lately, though

GIDP

So now the bruce excusers are saying it was becuase nobody bats behind him.

We shall see.

Blanket statement.

His issue is that he expands his strike zone when guys get on base because he wants to drive in runs. With guys who really dont scare many pitchers for the most part, he gets tossed junk and he swings at it. He is certainly to blame for not holding it back and takin that walk they are daring him to take, but having Stubbs who strikes out a ton, Cairo or catchers behind him means he isnt going to get much to hit if the pitcher can hit his spots.

It will be interesting in seeing if he gets pitched teh same today.

RedsFanInBama
07-22-2010, 01:46 PM
Did you ever think that maybe Bruce doesn't scare pitchers very much? Hell, Cairo is out-OPSing him this year and Stubbs isn't far behind.

You think Cairo is a better hitter than Bruce? You think Bruce is a career .675 OPS bat? You honestly dont think that Bruce could OPS over .799 in a 123 AB stretch like Cairo has this year? You probably are trolling or at least I hope you are.

The data does not support your theory.

Do you realize how ignorant it is to use 149 PA worth of data? Wait why am I asking you wanted to use a similar amount to show that Cairo is better than Bruce, even though 14 years worth ABs says he isnt a .799 OPS hitter.

Couple days ago, I was flipping thru the channels, wanting to see how STL was doing. Phillies were up 3-0 in the 3rd. Thought, "Hey, we might pick up a game." Of course, STL came back and won the thing. We are now in the same position sans Votto (our Poooo-holes) thanks to Bakermetrics....maybe we come back and win this thing but I doubt it. Reds cannot handle prosperity.

No, I don't think Cairo is a better player than Bruce. But I do think it's foolish to rip on Cairo when he's having a very solid season and Bruce continues to flounder in mediocrity.

As far as Brantley, that ball off Dunn's bat seemed like a routine fly off the bat.

I think we are overlooking the biggest part of the problem overall, we were a great team when Phillips, Votto and Rolen were hot!, now Rolens out and Phillips and Votto are preforming at about 50% lately !!!! They talk about the top of our order almost every night on ESPN, not doing well of late. We win when they are hot, plain and simple!!!!!!

A disaster? It's his 2nd start back from major surgery. Many didn't even think he would pitch this year.

If we still had Hamilton people would complain about how he is hurt all the time. In four seasons, he's only played in more than 100 games one time.

Dude is mashing, hitting .357. It's not the worst trade we could have made, but the results do not currently favor us. You say that we'd be complaining about JH's constant injuries....well, it's not exactly reassuring that we've already had to watch EV undergo TJ surgery.

You can do whatever you want. I mean if you and anyone else want to look like an 8 year old who just got his cookies taken away from him that is your call.

The board is contentious because of clowns who overreact about the smallest of things. We are going to lose some games, we are going to make mistakes, every team does from top to bottom. We'll still be in the hunt at the end just like the Cards. It's going to come down to the wire and the last handful of games. I just don't agree with the way people go about expressing their opinions, and it makes our fan base as a whole look childish and BAD! Is that what you want?

Hell we could come back to win this game but some people are so worried about posting something negative they would probably miss it. Like I said I've been a lurker for a while and just decided that some of the stuff being spewed on here recently needed to be toned down, so I signed up.
