Interesting that Phillips is moved back to the 2 spot.

Interesting that Phillips is moved back to the 2 spot.

Dusty probably just wants to change things up. Phillips is batting .180 in July. He also bats .321 in the 2 hole.

Can't hurt.

Lets get it!!!

Kingspoint

The REDS should get 8-10 plate appearances from the top two spots. The way it's been going, they'll only reach base 2 times total.

A great start to this new week, and to this new series would be for those top two spots to reach base 4 times today. Give Votto a few chances to knock in a run. With Rolen backing him up today, he might get better pitches to see.

Orlando Cabrera is 13-for-41 (.317) with four doubles, one homer and six RBIs against Randy Wolf

Phillips hitting in front of Votto is going to see some good pitches no matter what. He should have a big game tonight. Go Reds!!!

Agreed. I really like Brandon in the 2 hole if the OC can hit. He should get a couple hits..hopefully

Reds

I hope Arroyo is more pitch efficient and doesn't have that 3-4 run inning he had last time (bullpen helped get 'em in).

Kingspoint
07-26-2010, 06:17 PM
I'm very happy to see that the REDS were able to recover from their Philly Phlop.

To have gone 2-0-1 in the first 3 series of the post All-Star break is just another in a long line of strong, positive character issues this team has shown REDS' fans this year.

The 2010 REDS are as ready as they've ever been to go on a real winning streak....10 out of 12....13 out of 16....something like that. It should begin to happen within 14 days. It will be hard to do without Rolen, but with Rolen it can be done.

Kingspoint
07-26-2010, 06:18 PM
If our top 2 hitters reach base 4 times tonight, we'll win the game.

Top two HR hitting clubs in the NL square off next!

Kingspoint

Again,....

....if our top two hitters can reach base 4 times this game (Fielder's Choices don't count), we'll win.

Kingspoint
07-26-2010, 08:13 PM
Phillips saw three straight fastballs and he still couldn't get the ball out of the infield.

Don't know which slump is worse....his or Bruce's.

Kingspoint
07-26-2010, 08:15 PM
However, it's likely our top 2 hitters only reach base 2 times, like normal lately. Arroyo might have to limit the Brewers to 1 run tonight.

GIDP
07-26-2010, 08:15 PM
63 walks for Wolf this year in 128 innings.

just saying

Kingspoint
07-26-2010, 08:16 PM
Poll:

Who reaches base more times this game?

Weeks or the combination of Cabrera and Phillips.

I pick Weeks.

Kingspoint
07-26-2010, 08:16 PM
63 walks for Wolf this year in 128 innings.

One every other inning. I'm guessing we don't get one for every 2 innings he throws tonight.

GIDP

Kingspoint
07-26-2010, 08:23 PM
Arroyo's got a great chance at surpassing his career best of 15 wins in a season.

In Arroyo's last 7 seasons (counting this one), his current ERA going into this game (4.26) is his 3rd highest of the seven seasons .

Kingspoint
07-26-2010, 08:23 PM
Welcome back, Rolen.

Kingspoint

Take pitches from this guy.

He won't last 5+ innings.

FWIW, Stephen Drew takes pitches.....Jeff Keppinger takes pitches.

.207 w/ RISP going into this at-bat.

I'd rather Bronson just take pitches than hit into a DP

texasdave

I will file that under clutch hit. If he makes an out there the Reds don't score.

arkimadee
07-26-2010, 08:32 PM
it would be hard for him to hit in a dp with runners at 2nd and 3rd

I like these two and am willing to not "give up the farm for a run at things this year" so that we can have a run at it for the next 7 years with Stubbs and Heisey as REDS.

When you look at who are the most patient Shortstops (only 20 have enough plate appearances to be ranked in the Major Leagues), but Cabrera is next to deadlast, while Stephen Drew is 6th.

No he didn't. He stuck his arm out at the last second, but he was turning away.

Dale4Saul2Red0
07-26-2010, 09:12 PM

Sticking your arm out is leaning into it. It was slick the way he did it, but he definitely made sure that ball hit him.

RedsFanInBama
07-26-2010, 09:13 PM
Sticking your arm out is leaning into it.

No it isn't. Leaning into it means you lean out into it. Turning away and sticking your elbow out slightly is not leaning into it.

Kingspoint
07-26-2010, 09:13 PM
Fielder leaned into that pitch btw

They can't exactly call it a strike if it hits a batter, but Arroyo has hung a couple of breaking pitches. For most of the game, he's hitting his targets.

I see a complete game from Arroyo tonight and win #11 even if Cabrera and Phillips go 0 for 8.

I wasn't saying it was a strike I was just pointing out Prince could have easily avoided that pitch, but he turned his body to make it look like he was trying to move and then stuck his arm out. It was a savvy move, just making an observation.

I wasn't saying it was a strike I was just pointing out Prince could have easily avoided that pitch, but he turned his body to make it look like he was trying to move and then stuck his arm out. It was a savvy move, just making an observation.

I didn't see that pitch, myself. I'll go with what you saw.

Because I believe the Reds have left atleast 5 wins on the table. I believe Dusty's poor managerial skills in terms of personnel decisions were a huge factor in those losses.
