Re: Corey Patterson gets in his first lineup today...
Unfortunately, "Murderers Row" didn't fare so well against Dontrelle. Nasty Left-Handers are going to (continue to) eat us alive.
For all the things Bruce and Votto will bring to the Reds in the future, looks like hitting Left Handers should not be one we look for.
This only re-emphasizes the need for a RH power bat.
FWIW, EE didn't have any success against D-Train either... That Murderers Row was a combined 0-8 with 3 K's (tho not sure if they were all against DW).
I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008
Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009
