    5/30/2013 Reds at Indians

    This lineup should generate some discussion. I do like Mez DHing. I never thought Dusty would do that. But the old rule still applies,SS always bat 2nd even if they are batting .150.

    Reds

    1. Shin-Soo Choo (L) CF
    2. Cesar Izturis (S) SS
    3. Joey Votto (L) 1B
    4. Brandon Phillips (R) 2B
    5. Jay Bruce (L) RF
    6. Todd Frazier (R) 3B
    7. Devin Mesoraco (R) DH
    8. Derrick Robinson (S) LF
    9. Ryan Hanigan (R) C

    Indians

    1. Michael Bourn (L) CF
    2. Jason Kipnis (L) 2B
    3. Asdrubal Cabrera (S) SS
    4. Nick Swisher (S) 1B
    5. Carlos Santana (S) DH
    6. Mark Reynolds (R) 3B
    7. Michael Brantley (L) LF
    8. Yan Gomes (R) C
    9. Ryan Raburn (R) RF

    Odd to see Cozart out when he is hitting well of late, especially with a left hander starting. Hopefully he is feeling okay/ not injured.

    I'm totally fearful I will never get over this #2 hitter crap. What I'd pay to see:

    1. Choo
    2. Votto
    3. Phillips
    4. Bruce

    Good to see Mez in the lineup. He's batting .385 ave. vs. southpaws.

    So Dusty went with two catchers. Hmm. No problem with that, didn't think he'd do it.

    No idea why Cozart isn't playing.

    The pitching match-up is Homer Bailey versus Scott Kazmir. Advantage Reds. (Huge) Time to send Lutz back down for regular work.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    Makes no sense to sit Cozart vs a lefty, unless he's sick or injured. Makes even less sense to bat Izturis second. It's incredible how much money Dusty Baker gets paid to manage a major league baseball team.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    I was wondering if he'd DH Mesoraco. Very glad to see it happen. IMO, they need to make more of an effort to get the kid's bat untracked.

    Can we preemptively make a thread just for people who want to complain about how Izturis is batting 2nd?

    I'm sure it's already in existence.
    Is it "next season" yet?

    I know.

    Robinson's a SH so if he hit second there still wouldn't be three LHH in a row, which admittedly would stop the Earth's rotation.

    Plus, Robinson there would mean SPEED at the top of the lineup, which we know Baker loves. But no. SS bats second.
