    I assume the return is because Cingrani is pitching.
    WHEN DOES IT STOP!?!?

    Corky will go 0-4, but his mustache will get a single, a HR, and get hit by a pitch.

    And because Mes has caught a bunch of innings lately.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Looking at Villanueva's splits, for a RHP this year he has been killing lefties. They are only 3 for 32 this season, all singles. For his career he is about even on the splits so still better than most RHP on lefties.

    I was in favor of the Reds signing Villanueva this offseason to be the #5 and trading Leake...but I hope the Reds bash his brains in.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "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."

    Sveum, if he is sitting DeJesus because a rookie lefty is pitching, is clueless. Yes, he has negative splits for a lefty, but come on. He is as dangerous as anyone in their lineup and they really need a win.

    (Pretty much guarantees a big game from Sappelt)

    Any pitcher that would dare even ponder striking such a magnificent lip warmer would instantly be struck by lightning before that dark pitch would even leave his hand.

    If he's going to get a start, it might as well be with the guy he's most familiar with of the catchers.
    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

    So, a manager is clueless for platooning a lefty who brings a low .500 OPS to the table vs. LH pitching?

    Negative splits is one thing, but his are downright horrible.

    With a day game tomorrow, Corky has to start one of them. Makes sense for it to be this one.

    Career OPS vs. lefties is .669, which is what I would use to see if he is horrible against lefties. I'm not sure what timeframe you were looking at. You didn't think I'd bother to go look that up before making that statement?

    Votto doesn't need days off. He just needs more coffee.
