Re: Reds vs. Phillies Thursday 8/23
This lineup is not ideal but given that we're up 8 games in the division (St. Louis has now passed Pittsburgh) and can at worst split this series, I see what Dusty is doing. There was an article posted back a few days about how Dusty seems to have a sense of getting players rest at the right time and keeping everyone fresh, especially while the season is ending. Pretty sure he also has one of the best September records in baseball as a manager. I like our situation.
And considering who is on the mound for both teams, it smells like a low-scoring, one-run decision tonight.
There are only two seasons - Winter and Baseball.
