I love this lineup.
Well, if this is your love you might ask for a divorce around now, LOL. Reds scoreless through five.
I guess mostly this lineup shows the impact of Ludwick's absence against LHP. The only RHH who is hitting lefties hard is Phillips. Reds used to destroy lefty pitching but right now don't have the righty bats to do it.
Still think the Reds should have obtained a stop gap righty bat with some power during Ludwick's absence and still think Cozart should be in there today.
