Funny. When I saw the lineup earlier I thought that this is the worst lineup of the season by Dusty.
Why bunch up your lefty hitters against Wood? I can speculate, as I did in an earlier post, but on reflection it really makes very little sense to me.
Why sit Cozart against Wood? Four game series, one lefty starter, Wood, so this game you sit him? Izturis is a switch hitter, he can go 0-4 from either side.
Wood doesn't have great control, if the Reds wait him out that might help, but I would have used a very different lineup today.
P.S. I see that Cozart has a poor hitting record against Wood. Fine, but until the team adds some righty pop, I still would have used him.
