I was very puzzled by Carbrera leading off and I suspected something like what Sheldon mentions on his blog:

No Reds hitter has a more extensive history vs. Brewers LHP Randy Wolf than Orlando Cabrera, who is 13-for-41 (.317) with four doubles, one homer and six RBIs.

Cabrera has also been one of the hotter Reds hitters in general. He has hit safely in nine of his last 11 games (17-for-45, .378).

Reds will face off against the veteran lefty Randy Wolf. He was nails last year with the Dodgers, but has been dreck so far in 2010 with the Brewers:

5.20 ERA (76 ERA+), 5.8 K/9, 4.4 BB/9 (!), 1.30 K/BB, 1.56 WHIP

Those are all 5th-starterish numbers. With Rolen back in the lineup, I expect the Reds to jump out to a comfortable lead before Wolf is pulled tonight.

I think it is a combination of how well Cabrera has hit lately and Phillips has really been struggling batting leadoff. Phillips is in a 3 for 30 slump right now.

I gotta say, I'm glad Rolen is back and this whole day-to-day thing has my mind in a preztel as to what to do/what should be done. I try to process it in my mind with a marginal cost perspective.

Let's say you think Rolen was going to miss 5 days...to me thats easy, don't DL him.
But what if you are wrong after 5 days and now you think he is going to miss 8 days total. Do you DL Rolen so you can have 25 guys for the next 3 days...but then you will miss out on Rolen for 7 extra days that you would have have should you DL him. Now let's say after 8 days you are wrong again, but know you are really certain he will be back after 10 days. Again, 2 additional days with a 25 man plus 5 days no Rolen, or 2 additional days with 24 guys but 5 days with Rolen.

Can't say what the Reds did was right, can't say what they did was wrong. Day-to-day injuries...very hard to manage if you ask me.

I was wondering about that after seeing him. We know it's faster to run through. And (just throwing this out, here) perhaps running through can actually help you avoid the tag in certain situations. OK...that's a stab in the dark...

This offense needs some trade deadline help. The beat goes on and on and on with too many easy innings against this lineup. Outside of the occasional outburst, it's lame.

Heisey to center? Not a trade but a change perhaps worth making.

If the Reds don't start hitting again, they will be five or six games out before you can bat an eyelash. Brewers are hot and then Reds play the Braves.

I think I'm going to go back to lurking for a while. Win or lose lately the game threads here really aren't much fun anymore. The guys are going to lose some games and they're also going to blow out some other teams in big wins. It's the nature of baseball. You win some, you lose some, and yes, the losing sucks but life still goes on and thankfully there's another game tomorrow. Have fun ranting tonight and I really hope it makes you all feel better. :(

Listened to the game tonight. Thought Arroyo pitched well enough to win.

Marty said the main problem with the offense is there's nothing for the opposing pitcher to worry about once he gets past Gomes in this lineup.

I disagree. I don't think that's the main problem.

He's on the money with that one. Bruce and Stubbs can't hit with anyone on base. He probably should have excepted Hanigan though. Hanigan seems to be good with runners on. He should be moved up to 6th in the lineup and Bruce and Stubbs dropped a notch.
