    6/12/2013 Reds at Cubs Afternoon Game

    Whoa!!! Look who we have leading off today. How do you like that? I think I might like this. I would seriously reverse Iztouris and Leake. The game today is a 2:20 game time. I don't think their is Reds televison today. It is on the MLB network and a Cubs broadcast.

    Reds

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

    Cubs

    1. David DeJesus (L) CF
    2. Luis Valbuena (L) 3B
    3. Anthony Rizzo (L) 1B
    4. Ryan Sweeney (L) LF
    5. Nate Schierholtz (L) RF
    6. Starlin Castro (R) SS
    7. Welington Castillo (R) C
    8. Darwin Barney (R) 2B
    9. Travis Wood (R) P

    Wow, didn't expect this lineup.

    And that Cubs lineup sure is left-tastic.

    Cozart has an very good night at the plate...bench him the next afternoon against a lefty for one of the worst hitters in baseball. BRILLIANT!

    This kind of stuff happens when you have scheduled days off. No biggie. He'll get an AB or two.

    Izturis got a double late last night, I wonder if Dusty wants to give him some confidence by playing him and hoping he does ok following that.

    I take the decision to hit Choo second as recognition of his trouble v. lefties. Maybe Robinson bunts or slaps his way on and Choo makes a productive out and moves him over.

    Otherwise I don't know why he bunched up his lefty hitters against Wood. Travis is better v. lefties (rather than righties) so far this year.

    If they want to sit Soriano, ok with me. Not a lot of power without him.

    Really would like to see the Reds pickup a guy like Pedro Ciriaco to be the backup IF over Cesar.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    My guess is he wants to try and get Choo going again by batting him 2nd.

    I like having Choo, Votto, Phillips, Bruce, and Frazier all bunched together. Best lineup of the season imo

    Was just coming to post that. Plus, having Choo in front of Joey can only help, imo.

    Which means we'll score 1 run.

    Go get'em, boys!

    If only Dusty didn't randomly try it against one of the hottest lefties in the NL

    Cozart is getting a day off (and has been bad all season) and people still find a way to complain. Good God.

    Count me in as somebody who likes how the lineup is constructed.

    Must have added it recently. It wasn't listed in Yahoo sports when I checked earlier today.
