    Can anyone explain Bruce batting clean up while our best offensive player bats 6th?

    Price from last night's game recap.

    "We've had our team meeting, we've had our dugout chat, we've had that stuff, what I think we need to do is to go out there and play better baseball," Price said. "I realistically feel if you have to go out there and constantly motivate the players to play the game well, you've got the wrong players. I don't feel like we do. I feel like we have good players, I have not lost confidence in the dynamics of our lineup or our ability to do things. We definitely stronger performances and we need some guys to step up and perform to their level, if not we're going to be playing really low-scoring games or in this case, when games get away from us, not have the ability to fight back."
    He said the PC stuff after the portion I bolded, but sounds like Price has had enough with some of these guys.

    Yay more of the dynamic due of cozart and Santiago.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    I don't think the Reds have any leaders on this team. It needs to be an everyday player and not someone like Schumaker. Price is doing the right thing by showing he still has confidence in this team but if they continue to struggle then you could see some major changes in the off season.

    I'd like to know the same.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Mez has cooled off. Last 7 games he's hitting .125
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Yeah....but also several line drive outs and deep just misses. He doesn't look lost, off or overwhelmed....Bruce and others do a lot

    Shelby Miller is no-hitting the Blue Jays thru 5.....he'll easily finish it off.

    Against a righty Price cannot take Bruce out of the clean up spot. Until Votto comes back, then he can do so to "break up the lefties" if Votto hits third. But now, he can't.

    It would be a huge vote of non-confidence to take Bruce out of the clean up spot against a righty. Bruce is coming back from injury, he hasn't done well, but there are some things you just don't do.

    What I don't favor today is playing Santiago at third and Frazier at first.

    If you want Santiago to get a couple of games, rest Cozart.

    If you want to rest Pena at first base, play Lutz against a righty. Play him at first.

    Frazier at first, Santiago at third hasn't looked good defensively, no reason to keep pushing that button IMO.

    I don't have an issue with Santiago playing today. He has faced Hernandez a lot and has done fairly well against him. I agree with you on putting Santiago at SS and playing Lutz at 1B. Would like to know the reasoning behind it.

    I agree the team has the wrong players. But mostly because too many of the right players are on the DL.
