    Stubbs fans -- yawn

    Leake should be offended he's not the DH tonight.

    Really, it should be Lutz. Or Mesoraco. But this is Dusty Baker, y'alls!

    I imagine we should be thankful it's not Izturis.

    If they DH Mes and then have to use him to catch doesn't that kill the DH and the pitcher would have to bat.

    Hanrahan has done alright lately...hardly the worst move Dusty ever made... c'mon...a bit of slack...save it for something really arguable

    From mlb.com's Scout tool on their Gameday app:

    "Dangerous count for Justin Masterson; Joey Votto is a dead-red fastball hitter, with a 1.090 OPS against them this season and 1.034 against everything else."

    ONLY 1.034.

    How often does the catcher get hurt though?

    Haha! I know. What a useless stat. What a HUGE difference there in OPS. Hilarious.

    If the DH takes a fielding position you lose the DH

    A .56 diff for anyone else is significant...with Votto its meaningless because either number is outrageously good

    When I start thinking about pitch count, I know the opposition pitcher is tough.

    Masterson has 69 pitches.

    0-2 double by Cabrera off Arroyo. Curve ball didn't move much.

    Are you freakin' serious, Welsh? You want to know if people in Columbus are both Reds and Indians fans ... and root for whoever is better that year? What an ignorant statement. If anything, the "rivalry" only really exists in Columbus. This is the only place you'll really find Reds and Indians fans who hate each other.

    Really, Welsh? REALLY?

    Thom set him straight. Kind of. Thom did point out that Columbus is a Reds town right now, at a 3-to-1 rate (based on TV ratings).

    2-1 Indians. Back to back doubles.

    Arroyo goes 0-2 on Giambi who smashes a foul. Arroyo making the 0-2 pitches too good right now.

    Damage control here. Keep it close and get Masterson out of the game.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.
