    6/11/2014 Reds vs Trolley-Dodgers

    Here's the Reds lineup. I really don't like this Pena can only catch Cueto thing. Mez has to play everyday, especially since this offense isn't so good anyway.

    1. Billy Hamilton (S) CF
    2. Todd Frazier (R) 3B
    3. Joey Votto (L) 1B
    4. Brandon Phillips (R) 2B
    5. Jay Bruce (L) RF
    6. Ryan Ludwick (R) LF
    7. Brayan Pena (S) C
    8. Zack Cozart (R) SS
    9. Johnny Cueto (R) P
    Reds Fan Since 1971

    "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."

    Adding to the problem is that today they are facing Ryu, a lefty with Greinke going tomorrow. Mez should go today against the lefty and have Pena go tomorrow. Mez has a career OPS 200 points higher vs lhp than rhp while Pena hits rhp at about 90 point higher ops than lhp. (Mez this year however has a higher ops vs rhp and all 9 of his hr's are vs rhp) Oh well, griping won't change anything.

    Only 2 catchers in MLB caught more than 131 games last year. Wieters = 140 and Perez = 137. A healthy Mes with a day off every time Cueto pitches would catch 130 games. The position is too demanding to put a guy back there every day.

    “To me, what verifies if guys are still expecting to win is the effort that you get on the field,” Price said on Wednesday. “There are times here in the last week where we’ve had a couple of guys that haven’t run the ball out hard. That’s disappointing to me. That bothers me and we address it and we’ll continue to address it and not allow it to permeate the ball club. What we need are guys that bust their tail every day. As long as we get that, it’s hard to complain.”

    I don't like speculating on who those people are, but I think if you go back and look at the last few games, it's clear that Mr. Redlegs is one of them.

    That guy's got a real attitude problem.

    I don't think anyone has a problem with Mesoraco getting a start off once every time through the rotation. The problem is sitting Mesoraco when their is a lefty on the mound against the Reds. This team can't score runs the way it is. They need to maximize every opportunity and that means Mesoraco needs to play against LH SP. Let Pena start tomorrow against Greinke.

    If they truly wanted to "appreciate" the military they'd donate the night's gate to the Wounded Warrior Project or, perhaps, some other organization that contributes to providing employment retraining or mental health treatment for returning veterans. But that would be hard. Much easier to just wear camo and put a big USA sign on the nearest highway overpass. Stuff like this is a joke. It's a cynical attempt to sell merchandise under the auspices of patriotism.

    Not sure how it works by club....but I believe MLB donates 100% of proceeds from jerseys and hats to the 'welcome back troops' fund.
