Kinda of a big game today. Lose this one and the Reds are facing a disasterous road trip square in the face with Texas looming this weekend.
Izturis had as many hits last night as Rodriguez has in his MLB career.
And Rodriguez isn't a particularly good defender and is not really a second baseman.
And Rodriguez has a .644 OPS at AAA this year.
So, I'd rather go with Izturis.
