Hopefully, the days off cleared his mind and he can have another two-week hot streak.
Johnny Cueto is King of the Krazy Lineup.

I like how Dusty is tryin new lineup given our big division lead. We might just score 10 runs with a shutout.

I think Frazier could use a couple days off.....even though the replacement would be awful.

I think it's the 9.5 game lead and Cueto vs the Astros speaking, but I'm thinking that Stubbs is going to have a good day today.

Dusty said Luddy hasn't homered in nearly 3 weeks and needs some days off....and Frazier with no RBI since the 28th is close behind.

Why not Paul batting 2nd?

I know....can't have lefty-lefty in the order due to potential matchup problems in the 7th inning.

Seems crazy weird.

You've got to protect the plate there...

The Astro's are knocking the cover off the ball on Cueto, and the Reds are getting no-hit by Gonzales, go figure.

And as just shown.....Cueto has thrown more pitches than any NL pitcher.

I'm not sure having this kid pitch a second inning was the best idea. Why not let him sit after one perfect inning and feel good about himself?

A pitcher covering first immediately? He hasn't been up long enough to know that real pros hesitate off the mound and then dawdle over.

I am honestly surprised that Heisey wasn't pulled after five innings yesterday. You know they were just itching to get Stubbs back in the lineup. But how do you pull Heisey when he is getting getting multiple hits every game?
