    He (Dusty) is consistent. Come to think of it, so is Soto.

    That's got to be the theory..

    Soto hit Lefties well in AAA.

    Dusty said so in the pregame.

    Not if you're looking for the long ball.

    I guess Dusty doesn't trust Ondrusek to face the lefties.

    I didn't mean just Kershaw. I meant the Dodger starters & Cards starters. Wood has a crappy w/l record but his other numbers are VERY solid.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    I thought he's been hitting the edges and corners quite a bit.

    Bronson does the same thing. Location, location, location.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Dusty felt it was a situation to try and get a long ball. I think that's all there is to it.

    You only hit the longball if you make contact which he has shown little propensity for. His flyball surprised me.

    OK. I just tuned in to the game to see Soto PH.

    Ludwick in LF still leaves non-Soto RH PH options for any manager except Baker.

    I'm with you Charles. Wood is in the conversation when you talk about the better starters in the league. Not in the top tier of the very best but certainly in the next level.

    Jesus, we are 20 games over .500 and people are really complaining this much about Soto getting an at-bat with nobody on and us down?
    "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."
