    Clearly if Izturis wouldn't have had that single, he wouldn't have been on first, and Votto could not have hit into that double play.

    Izturis is to blame.

    Izturis was 4-6 against Kazmir....I think there may be bigger conspiracies going on than the number 2 hitter.

    7-1 now. Good sign as Bruce has two hits on the night.



    Have they said why Cozart is out tonight? Is he sick again, dinged up, was he caught hanging out with Arredondo, or is he just getting the day off?


    No I am not blaming the seven two out runs on Izturis.

    Logical enough. Ok.

    BTW, did anyone ever explain why Cozart isn't playing tonight?

    Robinson with 2 hits tonight....Why won't Dusty play him more?

    In the context of a 7-0 ballgame against the Reds, I think it's a logical inference that somehow the post was intended to lay blame on Izturis -- at least partial blame.

    If I'm incorrect, I'm sure you'll say so.

    But it seems Izturis got a hit to load the bases earlier and the Reds' superstar hit into a DP. So I wonder what exactly Izturis did wrong here.
    Games like this happen, but this team had a chance to get back into it, to at least cut into the lead. At this point, everyone knows what Izturis is. Well, everyone but Dusty. The lineup mess is Dusty's fault. And no, the score isn't Dusty's fault, but he does shoulder some blame for limiting the Reds ability to sustain a rally to get back into this game.

    Hanigan's running speed has declined.

    Cardinals with 2 runs in the 1st against KC...2-0 with Cards still batting, bot 1.

    Cards with three 2 out hits in 1st inning to score the 2 runs.

    But I don't get why Izturis is being singled out.

    I haven't watched the whole game but a number of Reds have failed to sustain rallies. I've seen Votto and Hanigan hit into double plays. Frazier struck out twice, at least once with a man on, and is now hitting .231. Bailey got hit hard.

    I don't know why Izturis is playing tonight, and I know people don't like it when he hits second. But I wouldn't single out the weak hitting backup in this particular game.

    I just really don't know the answer and was asking if any statement has been made as to why. That's all. Maybe it's earlier in the thread, I haven't been in the thread very long.
