Cairo instead of Frazier? WTH?
Probably wants to keep Frazier away from Volquez who has nasty stuff and little control. Dusty wants the vet against V. That's my guess, not endorsing it.
I never saw a reason for the arm wrap Frazier's been wearing. Did he get beaned recently, and I missed it?
If the Reds were out of contention, as an experiment I'd love to see the results of them going up to the plate and not lifting the bat off their shoulders with EV on the mound.
On a related note, I'd also like to see Josh Hamilton flip a coin before each AB...if he miscalls it, he does not swing that AB. That might be enough to make pitchers start pitching him more honest.
Just freestyle thoughts off the top of my mind...don't hold it against me.

Headley singles past a diving BP
Quentin grounds out to Leake
Headley with a 2 out hit.
Good inning for Leake. 0-0 mid 1st.
Gameday dude must have went to get a coney. Stuck in 'warmup' mode.
Tonight's game is the free MLB.TV game of the day by the way.
