From Hal McCoy's blog last time Reds faced Wandy:
What kept Baker awake was what to do about right fielder Jay Bruce on Friday night against Houston left hander Wandy Rodriguez. Bruce was 1 for 26 with 13 strikeouts against Rodriguez.Play him or bench him?Baker decided to play Bruce, but he dropped him from fifth to seventh in the batting order.“Bruce ain’t struggled a little bit against Rodriguez, he has struggled a lot,” said Baker. “I wrestled with that. It gets to be a pride sort of thing. You don’t want anybody to keep having your number.“If I don’t play him he’ll keep having those bad numbers,” Baker added. “The only way to break that number is to play him and try to figure him out. Hopefully the law of averages are on Jay’s side. They’ve been on Jay’s side for a long time now but so far it hasn’t worked out.
