    So I'll assume game 2 won't be same as it was posted yesterday.

    If Skip starts both games at 2nd...

    Good to see Cozart batting 2nd, refreshing to say the least.

    Can he bunt?

    IF Price is so keen on the new stats in baseball, why on earth do you bat a guy with a .273 OBP second? Why do you continue to trot Heisey to LF when his line is .225/.274/.635 and Ludwick's is .260/.321/.719 on an every other day basis? Why even Schumaker is at .239/.291/.612. Defense you say? Ludwick may not look pretty but he gets the job done in left and has fewer mental lapses than Heisey who seems to be on another planet sometimes. Yes you need defense, but this team needs to score runs especially today. Not playing Santiago is a sin, nothing short. this bunk about Ludwick being too old to play every day is bunk. He should play at least three of four days.

    You gotta stop with this every other day stuff. Heisey has a .412 avg and 1.206 OPS at Coors field and he's going to get 4 AB and 1 start this 4 game series. Hardly is that too much

    Ahem. Mr. Ludwick is hitting .571/.625/1.768 at Coors. He's started 80 games this year while Heisey has started 69. Maybe not even, but close. Reds could use his bat out there since Frazier is out. By the way, Chris is hitting .231 during the day this year and Ryan .321.

    I would start Ludwick 3/4 of the games in LF, have him as the DH in most of the DH games and when Votto went out his butt would've been there to have him starting most every game.

    You are sandbagging your numbers as you know Skip has had many many LF starts and Bruce being out gave Heisey many more starts than he would've.

    You really expect Ludwick to start both games of the DH? (Since they won't try him at 1st?)

    Making up numbers?

    Ludwick is a career .395 and 1.223 OPS at Coors

    Ludwick probably can't play both games. Sit ludwick when latos pitches because latos most likely to keep Colorado to fewer runs allowed.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    Always felt Price isn't in deep love with Heisey's bat.

    Today is the proof, with Cozart hitting second and Heisey hitting eighth.

    Anyone think Reds will pay Heisey $2 million in an arbitration salary for next season?

    I say yes and it will be insane. Nothing surprises me when guys like Jack Hannahan and Logan Ondrusek can get the contracts they got.

    I wouldn't mind Ondrusek back next year, as a swing reliever occasionally at AAA, last man in the pen. For depth, I doubt they will find much better.

    By th eway, anyone but me ever notice how Heisey squints when he's at the plate. Maybe he needs glasses or new ones? I understand he has contacts. Is this true? It sure isn't working.

    Do the Reds call up a player to take advantage of the extra player for a double header rule?
