    Well the rest of it lies with a guy who's name rhymes with Fusty but I don't feel like getting into another one of those trainwreck threads.

    Based on the way Dusty appears to view the #2 hitters spot, a place for a guy with some pop to see a lot of fastballs to help him out, it would seem Frazier could use some time in that spot.

    Won't happen but the argument can be made.

    The only other thing you can do is bundle up all your auto outs in the 6-9 holes and hope for the best. It might be worth a shot.

    ANother hit by Cozy sandwiched by outs by Choo and Votto. It must be so frustrating hitting between two guys that fail 65% of the time!

    I think Dusty doesn't want his "power" types like Frazier hitting second. And he doesn't want a lefty (XPaul) hitting second between Choo and Votto. So Cozart gets it by default.

    He'll try other righty hitters. He tried Heisey who didn't hit. Ask Dusty, he'll say the ideal guy is not on the roster.

    I would simply put Xavier Paul second against RHP and Derrick Robinson against LHP. I'd go with CF, LF instead of CF, SS. With this roster.

    Re: Reds at Phillies 5-17-13

    If Billy Hamilton were to catch fire and the Reds bring him up to play CF moving Choo to left, would Dusty leadoff Billy, leave Cozart second in the order and drop Choo to eighth?

    Is CF leads off, SS bats 2nd a superstition for Dusty, a promise he made his mom or some kind of weird OCD manifestation?

    Maybe Chapman needs to teach Cingrani a slider.

    I think the CF SS thing is overdone, it's funny, but it's overdone.

    I once looked back at this and there have been long stretches when the SS didn't hit second for the Reds under Dusty.

    And this year, Phillips would hit second if Ludwick were healthy.

    Dusty is much more concerned with breaking up the lefties than he is with CF SS.

    But this year, well, it is CF SS.

    Howard did Cingrani a favor with that swing
