For the life of me, I don't get sitting Stubbs (.812 OPS vs LHP), and starting Bruce (.700 OPS vs. LHP). If it were me, I'd start Heisey over Bruce, not Stubbs vs a LHP. I know Stubbs could use a day off, but I say let him hit vs. the lefty.

Stubbs is in a major funk. I like sitting him today, letting him focus solely on what Dusty and Jacoby are saying and implementing it in BP and maybe in the cage. Use tomorrow to clear his head and be ready for Friday. Atlanta is a huge series.

Bruce, OTOH, needs to learn how to hit lefties. The only way he can possibly do that is to keep getting ABs against lefties.

That's interesting, I had to look it up.

Bruce BA vs. LHP:
2008: .190 (152 PA)
2009: .210 (116 PA)
2010: .248 (130 PA)

Looks like he's improving. Agreed that he should get continued looks against LHP.

Bruce sat against Wandy on Sunday, and I don't think Dusty wants to make it seem like he's starting to platoon him.

Besides, Stubbs has been scuffling lately.

I'm very interested in Travis Wood's next start. He gets the Cubs for the Second time. Travis has shown through his Minor League Career that he does pretty well the second or third time through a teams lineup. I'm curious if the trend continues. If so, wow. We have something here.

I was thinking about this on the way home from class today, think about how we acquired our lineup/rotation.

Hernandez (Freel/Turner)
Votto (homegrown)
Phillips (PTBNL)
OC (free agent)
Rolen (Edwin/Stewart)
Gomes (free agent)
Stubbs (homegrown)
Bruce (homegrown)

Hanigan (homegrown)
Heisey (homegrown)
Janish (homegrown)
Cairo (nothing)
Nix (nothing)

Cueto (homegrown)
Arroyo (WMP)
Volquez (Hamilton)
Wood (homegrown)
Leake (homegrown)

Really, the only players of note we gave up were Hamilton and maybe Stewart. And even Hamilton we got in the rule 5 draft.

Fletch: Oh, it was. Yeah, it was really a shame. To go so suddenly like that.
Dr. Joseph Dolan: He was dying for years.
Fletch: Sure, but... the end was very... very sudden.
Dr. Joseph Dolan: He was in intensive care for eight weeks.
Fletch: Yeah, but I mean the very end, when he actually died. That was extremely sudden.

reds44

Not that anybody cares, but I have Storm Stories on the TV as background noise. The re-inactions (that's not a word) they do is some of the best uninentional comedy you will find.

It's so bad it's funny.

They also interviewed this lady who was talking about how her friend was a normal teenager until she got sick, the problem is she got sick when she was 12. Big fan of those 12 year old teenagers.

According to GameDay, these pitches are way too good for this ump's strikezone. Take advantage!

You're not supposed to blame Wood.

Haha.

Yep, it was Gomes fault that Braun one hopped the wall, and Lucroy lasered a liner to left.
