    Dusty's watching

    Dusty Baker strolled up behind the batting cage Thursday morning and said: ďLetís see how many hits you can get. If you canít get a hit in practice, you ainít going to get any in the game."

    Jay Bruce, Joey Votto, Juan Castro and Paul Bako were in the group hitting. The intensity of the session picked up. It was Bakerís way of saying: Iím watching.

    For the record, Bruce went 3-for-5, Votto and Castro 2-for-5 and Bako 0-for-5. Baker was arbiter. Bruce last hit was home run that just missed the foul pole.

    Bako, by the way, asked hitting coach Brook Jacoby to work with him in cage after BP.

    I think that Baker's reasoning is valid. Nice motivating tool as well.
