    6/26/14 - Reds @ Gigantes - DatDude is back for real this time

    Hamilton CF
    Frazier 3B
    Votto 1B
    Mesoraco C
    Phillips 2B
    Bruce RF
    Ludwick LF
    Cozart SS
    Leake P


    I recall Leake pitching an awesome game in San Francisco back in 2012 (let us not speak of his final start of that year against the Giants in Cincy), hopefully that and his last start will buoy him to success tonight.
    "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."

    I guess expecting a day off to recover from the flight is too much to ask for in the age of selig. Good to see BP back. Schumaker stepped up nicely in the interim.

    When you balance Phillips' status and expectations; splitting the lefties; going with the hot hand; Frazier's good performance in the two hole, a sore spot for this club --

    Really a perfect lineup and batting order by Price for right now.

    If ever I wanted to see Hamilton hit one into the gaps the next four days is it. He gets one there and watch him run baby

    The Reds small samples against Vogelsong,


    Hamilton: 3-3
    Frazier: 3-7, 2 HR, 2 BB
    Votto: 1-6, 3 BB
    Mesoraco: 0-4, BB
    Phillips: 8-16, 2 2B
    Bruce: 5-15, 2B, HR
    Ludwick: 4-7, 2 BB
    Cozart: 0-9

    If Schumaker is needed in place of BP, he is: 3-8.

    He gets one into triples alley there, and he could run for days.

    When a team travels to a distant outpost like Boston, located on the Isle of Avalon in Prester John's kingdom, one needs off-days on both ends.

    Chicago to San Francisco - piece of cake.

    What's a little strange is that this is the 2nd time this season they've had a night game preceding a trip out west. At the end of May, they played the Cardinals on a Sunday night, then flew to L.A. to play the Dodgers the next afternoon.

    They lost both of those games, for what it's worth.

    At least this isn't as bad as the Memorial day fiasco when they flew to LA overnight and had to play at 6PM EDT. On National TV!

    How about an extra position player?

    The fear of not having enough arms in the pen has subsided.

    Not expecting any cameo visits from Dusty Baker this series. I'm told he's out of town with his son, who has a baseball tournament #reds

    Best lineup of the year.

    Reds need to win tonight, start the series off right. No Belt, No Morse and No Pagan for the Giants. Put some pressure on.
