Re: 7/29/12- Reds @ Rockies
I was just thinking Ludwick was so hot that he needed a day off. No reason to let him go out there and rake in his favorite park in MLB.
This is what drives a lot of people crazy about Dusty. I like Dusty overall, but my one gripe is lineup construction. If he wants to get Heisey a start, that's fine. Put him in CF and give Stubbs the day off. It's really not that complicated. Giving Ludwick a day off while he's this hot is doing a favor for the other team. Especially when Votto is already out of the lineup.
I know, I know, we've won nine in a row, our record is 60-40, how can there be anything to complain about? I get that. It's just that it seems foolish to give Lud a day off today. And, again, if Heisey needs to play (which I agree with) then put him in CF and put Stubbs on the pine.
