What do Frazier and Hanigan have to do to hit higher in the lineup? I mean really do they have to go 4-4 each night for say the next month before Dusty moves either up?

Love Frazier in left. Let's get off to a good start.

would like him better hitting in the four hole with Cozart dropping down in the order & BP filling his spot -- but just getting him in the lineup is victory

WTH was Bruce doing with his approach to that ball??? At first, I didn't even think he was going to throw. Then he uncorks that one. Of course, no Cincinnati catcher since Bench has been able to handle OF throws home.

Wrong on all accounts. Bailey's velocity has dropped since May and his slider isn't biting as good. That is fatigue. Cueto's case he just came off a 120 pitch outing and is tired a bit.

His velocity has remained consistent at 92-94 all season. When Bailey gets in trouble it has everything to do with his location, yesterday's start being a prime example. (see both HR's both up in the zone).

4 in row looks like a sure thing tonight.
Plus we have maybe 3 consistent hitters on this team. 1 is sitting, 1 is in a slump & 1 has the only hit.

He didn't say the play was tricky.

He certainly insiuated that Frazier should not be playing LF tonight because it is a tricky outfield. What does that have to do with how he botched that fairly routine play? Nothing except to find an excuse to rip the lineup which is silly.

Nope, was 93-96mph in May and his slider was far better. Since then he has been around 91-94mph and a dull slider.

Again Who, you have to understand, that is all it takes. To say Bailey has not pitched fatigued is rediculous. Not only has his velocity dipped a bit, but his movement has as well on all his pitches. He threw some nasty curves against the Yankees and Braves I am still waiting to see again. He would be on the DL if not for his splitter.

He doesnt pitch consistently up to 96. Of course no one is as strong as they are in April but claiming Bailey is fatigued or should be placed on the DL is lunacy.

Yes. I'm going to rip the lineup. Look
At it. 812 year old second baseman. 768 year
Old 3rd baseman and a third baseman playing left. No reason to rip it??

Typical Reds performance as of late...sucks! What will it take to get Rolen benched...actually from the way things look today, the whole team needs to be benched. Another crappy day in Redsland, 1st place is slip-sliding away. I'm predicting a 4-7 west coast trip and Reds are tied for 2nd at the All-Star Game break. If we can't win with Cueto, then chances of splitting the next 4 is bleak.

Rolen is tied for 2nd in hits tonight by a Reds player.

My God he's an old 22. Reds announcers call Bruce, Stubbs, Cueto young....what do they call Bumgarner.

Clearly you have NO CLUE what you are talking about...but nice try.

Come again?

30+ years of experience watching these West Coast games.

Shoulda listened.

Coming off two straight seasons with winning west coast trips, and you are claiming VICTORY in your statement after one game. Sure thing boss.
