Votto gets a well deserved day off with Ace Cueto dealing...

Cozart SS
Stubbs CF
Bruce RF
Phillips 2B
Heisey LF
Frazier 3B
Costanzo 1B
Hanigan C
Cueto P

Cueto usually owns the Pirates. I can see a 5-1 outcome. Something along those lines. This is pretty close to a lock as well.

This is an interesting game, Johnny C. usually owns the Pirates, but coming off 2 of last 3 outings very poor...need a big game tonight.

It'll be interesting to see what Bruce does in the #3 spot, I like it a lot. I'd also like to see him batting cleanup and BP batting 3rd!

texasdave
05-30-2012, 03:22 PM
I'd like to see Costanzo go deep. Just as a reward for all those years of bus trips in the minors. (And, of course, to help the Reds win.) His stay with the big club is probably not going to be a long one.

Yeah....sounds good. Hit a HR....give him the ball and a 12 pack of razors to get him through the weekend and send him down and wish him well.

Why do we have two of these threads going?

Because one was mistakenly started on the Sun Deck proper rather than on the game threads board. No big deal.

It's a good move to get Votto back to back off days. If it's close we can bring him in to PH, but hopefully we get a nice lead and never need him.

texasdave

Baseball is a game of numbers and sometimes the numbers seem to make no sense.

In 2004, Adam Dunn had 681 PA and 0 Sacrifice Flies.
In 2012, Mike Costanzo has 15 PA and 2 Sacrifice Flies.

Odd.

If any of those rumors are correct...that we could have dealt him for Jair Jurrjens in the off-season, I am ticked. Jurrjens may be injured or never again get his act together, but it's a worthy risk for a completely league-average player like Heisey.

Maybe a knuckleballer. Or if it were REALLY windy, some slower off-speed stuff. But most likely no. Unless, as WhoDey suggested, it's a straight headwind at the pitcher.

When a pitcher is facing the Reds, he's in a really good position to produce a "well-pitched game." Especially with no Votto. Chicken and egg thing; I get that, but it happens far too often for us to consider crediting good opposing pitching for our offensive shortcomings.

Cairo has been the worst hitter on the team.

do the reds have the worst bench in baseball? I'd like to see the stats. We throw up people like Harris, Constanza, Valdez, Cairo - those guys have to be cumulatively batting under 0.150.

I would rather hit for Cairo. But at the same time you got to make sure Votto gets a shot and Frazier had already hit into one DP.

Sure I agree, but this one probably cost the team a win. I think there are times to sit a guy when it has less of a chance to cost the team. When Cueto is out there I would have my best line-up out there. This is when you are most likely to get a win - you need to take the for sure wins. I disagree with how Votto was used tonight on many different levels.
