We now know Matheny is not a number's guy. One of the premier Reds' killers of the past decade and he is sitting on the bench. Right where Reds' fans want him.
He's not a numbers guy? He benched Berkman yesterday because he had a bad record vs. the Brews' starter, and presumably to get rookie Matt Carpenter some playing time. Carpenter wore the collar. He was the only Card w/o a hit in the blowout.
I don't know what
Matheney is thinking today.
