    Dusty again playing the lineup that he thinks has the best chance of winning -- hence the few lefties, including no Patterson, Bako, or Dickerson.

    I mean this in a non-judgemental way, but winning tonight is clearly Dusty's priority #1, with getting the most exposure for the young guys who might be contributors next year a distant #2.

    Personally, I'd much rather get a look at Dickerson against the tough lefty, even if he goes 0-4, than give more AB to Jolbert Cabrera. I just hope one of us is blowing out the other so we can finally see Roenicke.
    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.

    Our home plate ump tonight is Bob Davidson. His average is 7.97 runs/game, 13.7 Ks/game, 7.0 BBs/game, for a 2.0 Ks/BB rate. His runs/game average is one of the lower in MLB according to the umpire report.

    Hannigan took awhile to get the ball out but delivered a very strong, accurate throw and the good tag by Rosales equals Drew caught stealing. Young strikes out on the next pitch to end the inning.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    So was that a strike-out or a walk?

    That's what she said.



    I really like Votto at first base but with Alonso coming up soon I hope one of these guys can make a good transition to another position. I doubt Alonso can play anywhere but first so hopefully they can start getting Votto some time in left field or something.

    Volquez walks Young to load to the bases on a 3-2 pitch. Gameday showed that one to be a strike....right over the plate. Dunner, up, bases loaded....
