    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?)

    Ludwick is what, 37? He should be able to play 5-6 games a week. When I was that age, I didn't get to take off 2 days a week.

    No. Just thought with no fire power in the lineup, Frazier out, Ludwick was needed in this game. Also, I agree that 3/4 of the starts should go to him.

    not according to espn.com. Just looked it up. That was this year I was quoting. According to espn, career is better than that.

    This game may be out of reach already.......Reds not enjoying Coors at all.

    I don't like using the word 'unacceptable', but getting your ass whipped in Colorado by the worst team in baseball pretty high up there on the 'unacceptable' scale.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    As I said....he'd get about 125-130 starts this year if I had any say...and with PH AB's would get near 500 AB

    Heisey is playing as needed. He's the best back up by a mile at every OF position. He would see 275-300 AB in a season like this with a rookie CF and injured/struggling RF and a 36 year old LF that would DH and also play back up 1st base.

    Skip is the guy playing way too much for starters. He's the 3rd best LF, should never see CF or RF and is the 3rd best at 2nd and that's not including Phillips!.

    baseball reference is where I got mine....could not even find anything of such on ESPN

    Brewers are kicking the crap out of the Dodgers... In L.A.

    Lucroy will be discussed in the MVP race.
