I like the line-up. I'm happy to see Heisey getting every day starts. The way Cairo's hitting, I'm fine with him batting 3rd in Votto's absence. The only thing I might have done is switch Heisey and Janish in the order, however Janish has hit Maholm well while others haven't, so it's good to me.

I see nothing wrong with the lineup. OCab is hurt. Votto is hurt. Stubbs isn't playing.

The order isn't a big deal to me. You need balance up and down the lineup.

I think he UNDERthinks it
At least he moved bp to #1, but otherwise it's SS bats second dude!
Then just replace the names with the positions that were in the lineup yesterday - almost NO thinking!

I wanted to bring up why its silly to bat your weakest hitters 2nd.

For example Orlando Cabrera has stepped to the plate 453 times this year. Hes got on base a total of 133 times.

Jay Bruce has stepped to the plate 427 times but has got on base 138 times.

Lets say Bruce had as many PA betting 2nd as Cabrera he would have been on base 148 times this year. thats 15 more RBI chances for everyone that hits behind him.

Votto has knocked in 18% of the baserunners hes had on base. Thats 3 more RBIs for Votto at least from Bruce alone. Not to discount the times the higher OBP guy extends an inning giving Votto even more RBI chances.

If Cabrera has as many PA as Bruce he would get on base 127 times.

You basically gain a net of 4 more base runners if it played out exactly the same, which it wouldnt because likely everyone would get more PA since the teams OBP would be higher, so far this year if you hit Bruce 2nd, and Cabrera 6th. Thats comparing a .298 OBP to a .326. That doesnt even consider in slugging percentage which likely means Bruce scores even more often since he would likely hit more doubles, triples and home runs.

I used bruce and Cabrera just for examples sake to show how much .30 points in OBP means even before slugging is taken into effect.

Wouldn't you want your better hitters to see more AB's then your worse hitters?

Dusty agrees with you. Janish is hitting second today and has a .370 OBP. :D

Wow, I didn't think Pittsbugh could even stoop this low. They play the small market card to get extra revenue without fielding a team. It makes me so mad. The Steelers have a great organization in the same city. At one time in the early 90's the Pirates were the team to beat. They need a new owner who is willing to spend money to be competitive .... Man it makes me mad when I look at what they could be. Jim Tracy was there manager two years ago. Look what he has done with the Rockies since. I'm glad I am not a Pirates fan. It is just frustrating being a baseball fan.

Maybe instead of trying to stretch Leake out by skipping starts, we should just let him keep throwing every fifth day and run it out. I can't imagine it's easy to stay sharp when you're working so infrequently.

Well, according to a Leake quote I saw HE expects that he won't be skipped/pused back again, and that the last time it happened was the last time it would happen.

Exactly. Have the guts to shut him down once he gets around 170-180 innings. But he hasn't been sharp since they've started toying with his schedule.

The Pirates scored 5 runs in the previous 46 innings. They got 6 that inning.

ILoveWilly
08-03-2010, 09:09 PM
I think we can cut it to a couple runs and make it a game, that's a lot different than coming back to win though. A little unfair he gets hit with all these ER's though, Rolen screwed up a ball big time that would have probably ended the inning, and should have been an error.

redsfan_12

What a joke. Schooled by the effing pirates. Stl will come back and win

Can't really defend Leake there. He gave up a hit to the pitcher with two outs and it still a 2-0 game. You just can't do that.

Ah, I don't agree with warning the benches. It should be over, and you don't need a reliever tossed because one gets away from him.

ILoveWilly
08-03-2010, 09:16 PM
This is one of those games where bad crap just happens. Bad bounce by Rolen that would have ended an inning, with a pitcher who has been awesome for us most of the year. You wanna be pissed, be pissed as all the games the combination of Dusty and Cordero have blown this year that afford us less error when bad crap happens.

rolenmvp
08-03-2010, 09:16 PM
ohh well it's over we can't gain ground on the cards tonight. stuck at half a game if cards lose, can't win division doing that crud.

And if you don't issue a warning and Leake retaliates and someone else gets hurt, then what?
