    Aroldis hasn't pitched since last Sunday. Yes, he needs to pitch. So does Broxton.

    Another single, Walker to left.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Go Reds!!
    I'd say no. I'd actually put Hoover in to close. Exactly the kind of lower leverage and confidence-boosting oppy he needs imho. Agree Chapman needs the work but the Hoover situ feels like a higher priority right here and how given min downside to deferring Chapman for another day.

    Latos escapes.

"If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    *whew* That was interesting. Grounder to Votto...in and out of his glove but sticks with it, out at first with Latos covering. 5-0 it stays. That should be it for Latos IMO. I'd go 1 inning each for LeCure, Broxton & Chapman.

    I get wanting to get Hoover back on track, but I don't focus on the rook at the expense of hurting your horses. They need some work. 3 days off is one thing....7 is a whole different ballgame for a reliever.

    It's nice to have a lead so when our pitcher makes a mistake, it doesn't cost him the game. Much less stressful on him.

    It's the logical and likely relief plan for today. Still like the more out-of-the-box idea to give JJ the 9th but that's why I'm neither manager nor pitching coach.

    I think Dusty sends Latos back out for at least one more inning.

    If Hoover pitches today I will be convinced Dusty hates the kid and wants to literally see his arm come off.

    Possible. Especially if LeCure is still under the weather.

    Votto. The bum. 20th walk. 2nd in MLB is Poo-holes with 11.

    Yep. And that's why it won't happen. But, if he did do it and Hoover had a 1-2-3 inning, it be a very good thing beyond the game. Basically agree the risks outweigh the possible reward though so not arguing it strongly at all.

    Latos is not going to want to come out after only 88 pitches. He's rolling along pretty smoothly...I'd leave him in past 100, personally.

    Part of me agrees, the other part is already tired of seeing Hoover!

    If Latos can finish the 7th, I'd like to see Ondrusek in the 8th and Marshall in the 9th if he's available (haven't heard) or LeCure if he isn't.

    Phillips has done his best in his last couple of games to make them pitch to JV...they just won't do it.
