Not sure I understand sitting Votto and XPaul against a tough righty. Votto does hit everyone but against RHP he's 200 points higher in OPS this year.
Just like Cozart sat against a lefty this week.
I do agree that both Joey and XPaul did not look their best yesterday. Maybe that's the reason.
And also, Hannahan doesn't hit lefties much. So if he's the backup, it may explain why Joey would sit and Jack would play v. a righty.
And Dusty doesn't like Paul against crafty types, he likes him against fastball pitchers.
Whatever, I'm sure there's a reason for it.
Man...that is a brilliant observation.
That's classic Redszone awesomeness.
