I feel good about Cueto. I feel bad about our offense. Flip a coin on this one. If Frazier has a good game I wonder if he gets a second straight start in LF in the next game?

I like the line up. Valdez or Cario at third is a toss up. I like cario from the offensive side. Interesting to see how Fraizer does out there.

Wait..Dusty said Frazier wasn't LF material and he had two LF and now this? And on top of that he doesn't give Cairo a start at 3rd? I still think he throws darts at a board to decide lineups.

Given how the Brewers starting pitcher is basically lights out in Miller park today and we have not done well against him so Johnny C. better be on his game today..

Brm back to stir up another misleading "contoversy." Dusty only said that he has a lot of outfielders and that and that day's matchup would determine if Frazier gets a shot in LF. Are you really going to question having Frazier in the lineup given the way that Rolen, Ludwick and Heisey have been going?

This is Frazier's trial as LF.

If he's an adventure out there like Alonso, Walt's gonna have to deal him.

Seeing that he's blocked at 3B by Rolen.

Well having Drew "heeeee struckem'out" Stubbs in the 2 hole is better than having him leadoff.

So there is THAT.

Point being................why isn't Frazier the starting 3B over the not-freshly-deceased corpse of Scott Rolen?

Reds need to bail on Stubbs ASAP. And Rolen and Bailey as well.

Unless keeping them means Baker goes.

In which case I'm all for keeping them.

Stubbs is over .350 in the 2 hole and Bailey has given us a quality start more often than not. For a 4th or 5th starter I'll take it. Yesterday was a trainwreck though.

Lets see...Frazier has been up "how long" now? And just NOW Dusty decides the matchup favors putting Frazier in the game at LF? So, there was NOT one other single matchup since his call up that allowed for him to start in LF? OMG...what a load of crapola. Frazier should have been playing at least every other day or such since his callup. Outside of maybe Bruce, no one else on the Reds roster is swinging a hotter bat then Frazier and yet he pines away on the bench till "Dusty" finds a "matchup" he likes? Again, the lineup is made by a dartboard...:thumbdown:

Not so much cherry picking, since his move to the 2 hole things have looked a lot better for Stubbs. He may get back to his old ways and then we can pile on the guy, but as of late he's been one of our better players.

Yes it is cherry picking. Call it whatever you want. What if I cherry picked and said Stubbs is 0fer in his last 8 at-bats in the two-hole with four strikeouts?

texasdave

All this magic about the two-spot and hitting in front of Votto is rubbish. Check out the 2-hole stats from 2010 and 2011. Nothing special.

I am a Homer basher and as of right now can't say he has pitched that bad. Yes last night was a stinker, but please, provide the numbers to show his other starts have been bad so far this season. As for Drew, he has around the same number of strikeouts as Votto has, so again what numbers this season show you Drew isn't getting the job done?

Lol that's two games. I mean I get that a lot of guys around here don't think Stubbs will amount to anything, but would you at least agree that everything about his approach at the plate has looked better in front of Votto?

Cherry picking or not, other than Bruce or Votto, offensively he's been the next biggest reason why this team has gone on a roll since our bad start.

I just don't get the constant need to rip on someone every time he doesn't go 3-5.

AFAIC, Billy Hamilton can't step onto the CF grass at GABP soon enough.

I've never seen a player with a more frustrating plate approach.

Who absolutely refuses to use his excellent speed by bunting more than 8-10 times a year.

And who actually chafes at the notion that he should be expected to.

2. You assume the Reds will switch him to CF
3. You assume the Reds are wanting Stubbs to bunt and he is not

Greinke below .200 average, thoughm, should not have taken that many pitches to get him.

Short AB with Morgan so it balances out. Cueto is such a workhouse, he can still go into the 7th easily.

Does he guess with two strikes on him? He needs to be swinging. Not guessing.
It's inexplicable.

I think he has no clear concept of the strike zone.

Or it's constantly morphing on him.

I would have set him down so long ago he'd have bedsores by now.
