Yeah...1st inning and and 1st at bats against the pitcher and Cozart and Phillips really learned nothing...wasted first at bat. Stubbs should know that he better protect on the low-ish strike.

Fortunately the Brewers are free swingers....and haven't had postseason success their past couple years.

The Reds are struggling offensively....fortunately for them one of their guys is hitting .381 over his last 8 starts with 10 runs and 5 RBI.....in his last 23 starts he's a cool .324 with 20 runs!

Ludwick isn't that young, the days off are scheduled in advance between the two of them.

The fact is we're without Votto, Jay Bruce has been absolutely terrible, Phillips has been hurt and he isn't hitting since coming back...and well after that you can't expect a ton of production. Role players can only carry you so long.

The problem is we are no longer facing the dopes that we saw against Houston, Colorado, and San Diego. We have faced three straight decent right handed pitchers. This has been our achilles heel for a long time. Unfortunately Walt has not addressed it.

Walt must have thought we played Houston the remaining part of the season. This team is very limited offensively even with Votto, put them up against a good or above average pitching staff and the odds go way down that we win.

We are 46-26 when Ludwick starts and almost a fifth of the losses coming in Chapman blown games. We are 20-18 when he doesn't start, I think people have a legit beef when he sits especially when he was on fire.

Over the last two years the Brewers are dramatically different at home as opposed to on the road. What they did in St Louis is irrelevant. Plus Gallaro did not pitch against the Cardinals.
