    LaRue went 3 for 5 last time, with a homer and a double, he was in the 2 slot against the Cubs.

    From the useless stats file...

    * The REDS are 10-10 on Sundays.
    * The REDS are 4-6 on Sunday games after a Saturday win.

    I know somebody posted this a few weeks ago, but how nice is it to see Jr. playing on Sunday afternoons.
    The last few years it wasn't even the injuries that got to me so much, but it was how scared Miley and Boone were to play Jr. too much lest he might get hurt.

    This sure beats the "Sunday Special" lineups Boone used to throw out there.

    I'm actually kind of surprised he's playing today after the loooooong night yesterday.

    Good to see!

    Yeah, but expect someone else in CF tomorrow - the 12:35 "get-away" day....

    Re: 8/28 Game Thread - Reds vs. Pirates

    Luke Hudson in the month of August:

    * 4 GS, 23.2 IP, 17 H, 16 K, 10 BB, 11 ER, 4 HRA.
    * 3-1 record, 4.18 ERA, 1.14 WHIP.
    > Lowest WHIP for a REDS starter this month (just imagine if the walks were more MLB-like).
    > REDS starters have thrown 64.9% strikes this month. Luke, 60.2%.

    Get this...
    * The REDS bullpen has given up 0 earned runs in Luke starts this month!
    > 12.1 IP, 10 H, 12 K, 3 BB.

    Wow, LaRue second against a righty - interesting, but not a bad move at all. Flip Casey and Kearns and I'd be even more impressed, but its still kewl.

    What is the BABIP? I know this is something people were worried about after last season. His being unnaturally low, and that seeming to be something that averages out over time.

    Excellent lineup, the one I'd like to see more often, well like Puffy said with Kearns in front of the Case
    Go Gators!

    Not sure, Hoosier, but seems to be around .235 or so. He seems to be "effectively wild" this month. And seems to avoid the longball (despite giving up 4 in 4 GS) following those walks. 17 hits in 23.2 IP is impressive!
