    Re: 5/6/2013 Braves at Reds

    Just as a matter of roster management.

    There are righty hitters who really can hit lefty pitching. They don't do much else, but guys who just hit lefties.

    With Ludwick out the Reds should have acquired such a hitter. One example (from another thread today) is Scott Hairston of the Cubs.

    Derrick Robinson is a decent fifth outfielder he can field, run, get a single to right occasionally, but he doesn't provide any pop.

    Reds have nothing on the bench from the right side, no power righty platoon man for LF.

    I guess they would say Heisey has pop, but he hasn't hit in a long while and now is out.

    Don't understand why the team has Lutz and Robinson and no righty bat.

    Does Jacoby or Anyone work with Bruce at all???? I'm so tired of watching him strikeout 2-3 times a game only to be followed up with 2 to3 groundouts to shortstop or 3rd by Frazier.

    No. They usually donate it to a local fire or police dept. at the end of the year.

    No. No one ever works with Bruce, and he isn't trying at all.

    Love to watch Bronson pitch. Never panics. You can see he has a plan and sticks to it.

    Again, the roster management point. They may want to sit Bruce against certain lefties right now. Why subject him to a guy like this when he's striking out almost every time.

    But there really is no righty alternative.

    Reds bench (when Robinson plays) is three lefties - Lutz, Hannahan, Paul -- catcher, and switcher Izturis.

    Don't want to beat a dead horse, but it really isn't well thought out. I'll move on at this point.

    Jacoby has offered to work with Bruce in the past but Jay has politely declined.

    Agreed. Simply no other pitcher I enjoy watching more. Sure, he gets lit up every now and then...but he's just so different from any other pitcher it just accentuates his fine nuances.
    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
