    This is a really good lineup, even the defense is about as good as you can align it with the players available.

    It may be the single best line-up dusty has run out all year.

    I think so. Baker has done the best that he can tonight with what he has to work with.

    I find it quite funny that Dusty's severe aversion to stacking lefties has finally resulted in his putting Adam Dunn higher in the lineup. I won't complain.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I'd have to agree with that. The one and only beef I've got with it is Phillips in the cleanup role. He's been successful at it this year, but he approaches his at bats differently in that spot. He seems to swing for the fences more. But considering the lineup's we've seen this year...that's nitpicking. :O)

    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Win or lose tonight, the biggest thing I want to see is a return to the Aaron Harang of old. Something's GOT to turn around for the guy.

    K on Sanchez leading off is the RIGHT way to start. :O)

    Sanchez Ks on 3 pitches. Ross blocked last strike in dirt.

    I want eight shutout innings from Harang tonight. Let's get the big guy back on track.

    Strikeout #2!

    Let's hope this is a sign of things to come.

    Better yet, how about a complete game shutout on less than 110 pitches?
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    And while I'm at it, I'll also give Dusty credit with the lineup. This is likely the best team the Reds can field against a southpaw, and the order is pretty solid as well.

    Kudos, Dusty. Don't let this be a one time thing now.
