I dont know why he loves putting those guys so high in the order.

He has hit a homerun off of him so he's basically a lock to start everytime we face Carpenter.

Considering the aquisition of Edmonds, is there a worse line-up that Dusty could have put out against Carpenter in one of the most important games of the season. (Nix in the 2-hole?) It should be a low scoring game, not having Heisey or Stubbs in center or left will hurt our defense with Edmonds not as fast as he used to be.

Put Edmonds in the two hole .293 avg./.358 OBP this year against righties.

Put Edmonds in the two hole .293 avg./.358 OBP this year against righties.

He gets on base way too much for Dusty's liking at the top of the lineup.

I don't think it's a terrible lineup. I just wish Heisey was playing. He's batting .400 against righties in 55 ABs, and he is hitting .333 in his last 10 games. The only positive about Nix is that he's hitting .357 in his last 10, and he's left-handed. But Nix isn't very strong against righties (.261 in 119 ABs.)

In games he starts against RHP Nix has this line: .292/.333/.478/.811. It is hard to include his pinch-hitting numbers in there because that is such a tough job (for everyone not named Chris Heisey). :)

C'mon Dusty....NIX? I swear that Baker is like the most immitator of LaRussa around. But I will give him this: He will walk Albert 5 times if situations allow!

Somebody said that Jim was 3 0f 9 vs Carp, ergo he will feast on him. Small sample size I think. I think that Jim goes 1 for 5 with 2 strikeouts. But whatever happens, what an exiting series this will be. I'm starting to booze it up now to calm my nerves!:)

Career batting averages against Carpenter:

Phillips - 5 for 26 - .192
Nix - 2 for 12 - .167, 1 HR
Votto - 6 for 15 - .400, 1 HR
Rolen - 5 for 19 - .263, 1 HR
Edmunds - 7 for 20 - .350
Bruce - 3 for 16 - .188
Hernandez - 4 for 28 - .143
Janish - 4 for 7 - .571, 2 HR's, 1 triple, 1 double - Just kidding.....never had an at-bat
Leake - 0 at-bats

Bench:
Cairo - 4 for 15 - .267
Dickerson - 8 for 12 - .666, 5 HR's..........just kidding, 5 -13, 5 singles, .385
Gomes - 0-7, 5 K's......guess we know why he's not starting tonight :eek:
Hanigan - 1-8 - .125
Stubbs - 2-9 - .222

Got no problem with the lineup. I realize the reason behind putting all the lefties in against Carpenter, but I just think Heisey might have been just as good as Bruce because Carpenter has never faced him, and vice versa.

If Edmonds comes to the plate 5 times tonight I like our chances of winning.

Edmunds has sat and watched Carpenter for years, and sometimes facing an old teammate gives you extra incentive. :beerme:

I actually like this move. edmonds is actually having a pretty decent year this year.

He really is. Not many guys can take a year off then come back and do what he's been doing. It speaks highly of his conditioning and natural talents. That's why he's a future Hall of Famer.

08-09-2010, 06:58 PM
Why does everyone hate Edmonds? I like the move

Because he was a Card, Brewer, and Cub. Everyone knew him well, so he was easy to hate. On the other hand, he should be really easy to like now, we all know his game inside and out just from watching the division for 10 years.

This game thread is trending way off topic btw :D

08-09-2010, 07:43 PM
Why does everyone hate Edmonds? I like the move

I like him as a LF platoon guy with Gomes. Wouldnt have a problem with him getting spot starts in RF and CF either.

I really like him as a LH power bat. Something the Reds didnt have at all prior to this trade.

That's Dusty for ya:confused: I know he's a lefty but come on man. And batting him second in the lineup. Please no. Heisey should be starting in center and batting second. Carpenter hasn't seen him before. And put Edmonds in left. Oh well just a thought.

Magdal
08-09-2010, 07:47 PM
Edmonds is a gun for hire...he don't give diddly for the Reds (or Cubs, or Mil) He wants to keep making that Jack and get to 400 HR's.

I just don't like this move, WALT!

Magdal
08-09-2010, 07:50 PM
15 minutes...lets go!!!!!!!This is SO exiting! I will watch every pitch even if one team has a 7 run lead in the 9th!!

But as I said before, I think Edmonds will be a black hole in the lineup.

To quote Hal McCoy (http://www.daytondailynews.com/blogs/content/shared-gen/blogs/dayton/cincinnatireds/entries/2010/08/09/before_we_dissect_the_chris.html):

Before one makes that an issue, consider that the Cardinals have six former Reds - Jason LaRue, Felipe Lopez, Aaron Miles, Dennys Reyes, Ryan Franklin and Kyle Lohse.

Sorry I'm not a fan of Laynce Nix and especially hitting 2nd,

It was hope that Dickerson would replace Nix, but I could see the stategy of keeping Nix for another 10 days until Wood gets recalled. Getting in an extra lefty against Carpenter would be worth it.

And, Nix makes a great play.

Kingspoint
08-09-2010, 08:13 PM
I could swear that this is the first time that Leake gets to have Rolen, Janish, Leake and Votto all in the infield at the same time.

That's a paradise of a Defense for Leake.

Mike Leake has to be pumped up about this.

For those who don't understand that Leake decides where he wants the ball to be hit to, he'll have more than the "1 time" per game that he had been having balls hit to the shortstop/third base. He'll probably have more like 4 or 5 or 6.

He was relying a lot on Dickerson to get healthy this year, when he had more injury issues he found himself not only in Dusty's doghouse but in Walts.

I'm not trying to nitpick, but Nix needs to bust it down to first on that. It's not like he's going to make it to first safely if Molina makes a good throw, but that swing at a bad ball and then leisurely jog down to first doesn't impress me much.
