It'd be nice to get a win tonight just so a non loosing road trip would be guaranteed.Not that I think we're in jeopardy of being swept after loosing 1 game to the Rockies ace.I'd just like to keep the pressure off if possible.

A win would bring the Reds record on the trip to 2-3, with two more games left, so it would not guarantee a non losing road trip.

Still no Bruce. Hope Cueto can perform well, the Rockies' pitcher is a promising young kid, who's been on a track similar to Cueto himself. Only 22.

I would honestly put Miggy in left, deal with the fielding, and bat him 5th. Just for tonight, while Bruce is out. See how it works.

Heading to the game again tonight (thx for the tix, Jim!). Now, I don't want any of you guys to blame the wife (seriously, don't, she's really concerned she's the human bad luck charm for the Reds), but she has yet to see the Reds win a game in person. Granted, it's only 5 games, but 0-3 vs Dodgers @ Chavez Ravine 2 years ago and 0-2 here @ Coors Field.

I have a good feeling that tonight ends that streak and starts a positive one! Go Rojos!

As in you would put Miggy in right? Or as in, "yeah right", if there's anybody who could play a worse outfield than Jonny Gomes, it's Miguel Cairo.

Right as in "Maybe everyone should get just used to Gomes as the starting LFer for the first place Cincinnati Reds instead of pissing and moaning every time the guy is in the lineup for whatever reason."

Yes they're in 1st place. But they aren't perfect. There are places to improve. And one immediate improvement I see that's possible, is to try Cairo in Left. 1st place or not, if there's anything to make them better, and I think trying MC there for a game is one of those things, then I do it. But yeah, they are in 1st place, and I really am happy. I just get tired of Gomes. There comes a point when a guy really needs to sit, and he's at that point.

Miggy in left?

Why?

Gomes is more likely to produce than Miggy as a LF.

Only Larussa would use him in left other than in a dire emergency.

I think I'd rather see KGJ come out of retirement for a game to play CF in Coors Field than Miguel Cairo in LF for anything other than necessity. Plus, you still have Francisco, who has at least played some LF recently.

Coors Field is huge. I had forgotten that. Alonso is a much better idea, if he could field adequately.

I don't think Alonso the OFer went well. The Reds publicly have ruled him out as a LF option. They'll extend Votto and trade Yonder this offseason. No sense in displaying the ugliness that must be his OF play in one of the biggest outfields this side of Yosemite.

Well. I guess we're left with Gomes then. Until Bruce gets back. Then Heisey to LF.

Are we complaining about the Gomes who knocked a couple out last week, then banged a couple off the wall Friday and Saturday? Or are we complaining about the one who was in a prolonged slump like many a slugger, a slump that may have passed?

People seem to be in a hurry to trade Alonso--and I don't blame them--but he has options and is a good insurance policy in the event that Votto becomes injured.

Every pitch the Rockies have hit has been a good pitch. Can't complain when guys shoots a low-and-away fastball out the backdoor for a homerun. I wasn't really expecting too much out of Cueto today after flying all over the place to get here tonight...

Trouble is, when you start 3 runs in the hole against a pitcher who just struck out the side, it's extremely difficult to come back. It was probably stupid to start him tonight after being out a week, or nearly a week, anyway.

Of course I'm sure some will dispute that.

He ran really far to try to catch that ball, time he got it, the ball was already past him... If he laid it for it, there probably wasn't even a chance..

No harm on that... Just good effort and I'm not sure there is a CF in the league that would of been able to get to that ball.
