Re: 7/3/2012: Reds @ Dodgers--Votto returns, Cozart has a hard head
Our rotation is a stellar group right now. Our offense needs help. We can hope for a trade, I would rather see something creative like being Hamilton up and put him in CF. Put him out there in Bakersfield for 3 weeks. Then give him a shot here. Anything to spark the top of this lineup. Another crazy thought: put BP back in the lead off spot and Cozart second. Ludwick or Frazier 4th and then Stubbs or Heisey 7th. Remember how well Stubbs did there? Remember how well BP was leading off? Remember how well Cozart was in the 2 hole before bein pushed to lead off? Those are quick fixes. I would rather have the catchers batting higher up, but take what you can get. Tomorrow hopefully is not a Dusty special lineup of Valdez or Cairo even sniffing the lineup. Also, sit Stubbs if you do not plan on moving him down in the order. I do have a feeling Valdez might be in at SS tomorrow, but I hope I am wrong.
