Against a righty, no problem, would fully support it, the Cubs did it today, five lefties in a row against Leake.
Why suddenly did the Reds bunch their lefties against a lefty? I guess it doesn't matter if the team gets no hits, but just strikes me as a really odd move.
I'm tellin ya, after the game Dusty is going to say "I told you so." This is a win-win for him. If the lineup works Dusty will take credit, if the lineup doesn't work Dusty will say "And THAT, ladies and gentlemen is why you don't bunch lefties!"
