I'm liking the idea of giving Bruce some extra rest. He hasn't looked like the normal Jay Bruce this last week, and I think giving him a few days off is a good idea.

Oh, and here is the Cubs's lineup:

DeJesus CF
Barney 2B
Rizzo 1B

Is Jacoby ever going to tell these players to take some pitches once in a while?

This is Dusty Baker approach...it just is.

Don't waste at bats.

I mean seriously....Wood isn't a power pitcher and the Cubs bullpen is awful....WORK the pitcher!

Always nice when teams have a hard time beating other teams show up against you. We lost 3 to the Brewers who got swept before us and then lost to Houston after us, and then these guys had lost something like 9 in a row. Someone should let the guys know this Travis Wood gave up 5 jacks against the Cardinals.

One reason why the Reds' offense has struggled this year. Combined stats of Valdez, Cairo, Harris, Costanzo and Navarro in 319 plate appearances. That is not much help off the bench offensively.

The thing I really can't stand about Valdez is he has no patience at the plate. He has only walked 5 times in about 120 ABs. When you are that weak of a hitter you should probably try to be patient and get on base to help your team, not have 1 pitch groundouts every AB.

I knew the answer as I have a few of the Topps Rose cards that tribute him surpassing Musial.

Agreed.

But maybe he's just taking batting tips from Player/Coach Cairo (2 walks in 104 ABs).

16 out of the last 17 tells you that it's a safe move to send him out for the 8th.
Bronson's ability to give up 5 runs in 2 pitches tells you it's not.

Cmon Bronson, don't collapse.

.240 is fine....but his .240 is .220 and he never walks and never goes extra bases. His OB% is .220 something and his OPS is under .490......silly silly numbers
