Stubbs 8
Valdez 6
Phillips 4
Ludwick 7
Bruce 9
Frazier 3
Rolen 5
Hanigan 2
Arroyo 1

Stubbs reward for 7 consecutive strike outs--a day off and now leading off! A tired Cozart is still much better than a well rested Valdez.....They get a day off Thursday.

u do realize were facing a leftie so good move imo

valdez i hate playing but i understand he will sometimes tho. batting him 2nd is insane tho

If you are going to have Stubbs in the lineup, this is where it should happen, against a lefty. Valdez batting second. No comment. Let's hope he has one of his very rare good games with the bat.

That inning is one of the main reasons I don't see us winning a World Series this year. Just seems like we are terrible at getting productive at bats in situations that should plate runs. Man on 2nd no out. Man on 3rd one out. Just seems like we always fail miserably in those spots.

The fact that they're playing Stubbs at all mildly irritates me, but he is a solid CF. Drastically better than Heisey? Probably not enough to justify the playing time differential. But the part that kills me is hitting him in the top two spots in the order. We've seen this for FIVE MONTHS now. What does Dusty think is going to change after one day off?

CF/SS must be #1/#2 in the order. Heisey isn't thought to be good enough to do anything....but when he plays CF he bats 1st or 2nd. Wilson Valdez playing for Cozart bats 2nd....if he plays for Phillips he bats 7th.

I remember when Alex Gonzalez was injured and Paul Janish was called up for defensive purposes only....he was thought to MLB adequate on defense and was not even a good hitter in the minors....but called up and when he got in he was put in the 2 hole.....utterly ridiculous....but consistent.

I realize they have hitting problems but do we get any credit for being tied for the best record in baseball?? Sounds like the 'sky is falling' all the time....:confused:

I have to give most of the credit to the starting pitching keeping us in games, and Chapman shutting everyone down in the 9th. Our hitting is middle of the road, with a boost from GABP. Failure with RISP a major problem, high strikeout rate, difficulties against right handers.

Other than the whole swinging and missing thing, Stubbs' biggest problem is that he is fouling off the couple of good pitches he gets to hit.

I would imagine pitchers will be brought up Sept 1 to rest the regulars some. But who it would be is a guess. There isn't mush at AAA. Hopefully Cingrani, Corcino from AA. Unfortunately I think it will be people like Ondrusek, Jordan Smith, Redmond, and only if they are on the 40 man roster. I don't think what
is at AAA is much help except to eat up a few innings
