I do not like our chances today. Leake has not been good in June and his luck is no count either.....going to need 6+ IMO

Bruce MURDERS Estrada
BP and Votto hit him very well
Cozart hits him well
LF Options today vs Marco Estrada???
...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.
Obviously, the GM doesn't look randomly at numbers against a random average lefty when building his roster......so let's end that talk completely. I was simply looking to see who in the lineup had done well against Estrada and the first 4 Reds I saw had hit him very well. I was just showing who are top hitters were against him.....then showed that all LF options were terrible against him.
My point at the end was blaming Walt for our LF choices most every game.
Now.....we can all enjoy Luddy going 3-5 today with a hr and 3 RBI. You're welcome. Lol
For all the complaining about him, Ludwick has quietly dragged his OPS out of 'horrible' territory and into 'okay' territory.
"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."
"A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals and you know it."
The thing is that Ludwick is not really hitting for that much power. But sure he is hitting better.
I think Walt is just thinking....Luddy will do a 2012 here anytime soon. No need to look elsewhere. It's all coming together. Rubbing his hands like Mr. Burns.
So Reds LFers are 2 for 28 against this pitcher.
Undoubtedly an extreme example, but not very inspiring. Well, they are due.
Busting out the A Team lineup today instead of the Sunday Special....I like I like.
Estrada is pretty bad right now. Hopefully Leake can get through 7 IP.
Reds pre game just said Bruce had 1 HR 4 RBI vs Estrada.....he's 4 HR/8 RBI
