Is Bruce available to PH at least?

With yesterday's win I bet they don't even try it. The team is in the driver's seat and they have a decent margin of error at this point. Get him healthy.

The lineup is just very right-handed. I'd expect Carp to pitch around Votto.

I think we win a good old-fashioned 2-0 game today where Hanigan knocks both runs in in the top of the 6th with a single up the middle.

A win today can just about put the Cardinals away. A 9 game lead with about 25 left to play would be nearly impossible to overcome. Like the title of thread said, Let's go for the juggular!

With our 3 LH OF's injured, not much choice.

RH hitters have hit him better this year anyway.

He has a FIP and xFIP close to 4, so carpenter isn't the dominate pitcher he's been in the past. Walks more than before, and gives up quite a few more HR's, especially to RH batters.

But he's plenty good, and has been nails vs. us. Time to change all that.

I think this game will come down to Homer. He needs to be on his game.

If he gets Reds through 6 innings tied or ahead, the deep Reds bullpen will bring it home.

I've never been a big believer in "veteran leadership" but watching Rolen and OC makes me realize how much it can help. It's not a knock on Janish at all because he did a GREAT job filling in, but I think having OC back is going to be huge for us down the stretch.

Looking at it from Priss' perspective...why WOULD he throw him a strike? I'd make Gomes prove to me that he can lay off one first.I agree. He'd probably rather pitch to Gomes than Homer. He's prolly thinking, "Sweet! It's Gomes...I don't even have to look." Don't get me wrong, I love Gomes' attitude and he has come up with some big hits for the team at crucial times, but I think almost any replacement level left fielder would outperform him over a full season. IMO, he should only be starting against lefties. :dunno:

Yes I can. Pitch count is not always the primary consideration.

Homer was facing the middle of the Cards order for the third time. No way I would allow that happen with men on base.

I'm not second guessing, I said it in an earlier post.

Tomorrow is Harang vs. Jiminez. I wouldn't be saving the pen for that matchup. I would have used Masset today in that key spot. It was pivotal.

I had no problem walking Pujols, although I understand the contrary argument. But Dusty put too much reliance on Homer there.

Yeah, I would have pitched to Pujols as well. But strategically, I wouldn't call it a blunder. Starting Gomes today, that was a blunder.
