    7/11/09 Reds vs Mets

    Per Fay:

    Interesting. Jay Buce hitting second for the second time this year:

    Willy Taveras 8
    Jay Bruce 9
    Joey Votto 3
    Brandon Phillips 4
    Ramon Hernandez 2
    Edwin Encarnacion 5
    Jonny Gomes 7
    Jerry Hairston Jr. 6
    Johnny Cueto 1 vs. LH Johan Santana (9-7, 3.29)

    Great. An extra PA against Johan Santana should help Bruce snap out of it.

    UNCLE!!!

    I'm assuming we're seeing Gomes over Dickerson in LF because of Gome's phenom numbers vs LHers vs Dickerson's.

    Why not sit Bruce instead of CDick, whose numbers vs lefties is far worse? CDick's are somewhat respectable. Bruce's stinks.

    Edwin on a tear coming into this game....

    So naturally bat him after the LH's flail uselessly against the best LH starter in baseball.

    ok... done ranting.

    And on a further note...... Hanigan's numbers vs LHers puts Ramon's to shame.

    I'd try

    Hanigan
    EdE
    Votto
    Gomes
    Phillips
    Dickerson
    Hairston
    Taveras


    Wanna play run around and make outs on the bases? Do it at the bottom of the line-up where taking the bat out of the hitters hands doesn't matter much anyway. Put guys who can get on in front of Votto and Gomes.

    Let me be the first one to complain about George Grande tonight. He's just painful to listen to.

    anyone watch the pre-game with Welsh and Taveras? Willie was ilustrating the art of stealing bases. :

    Add me in on those confused over dropping Bruce back into the line-up on a night Santana is pitching.

    I lke the batting second thought of Dusty's for him, but this is not a great night to try that out.

    Makes zero sense- let's snap Bruce out of his slump by sitting him against the marginal righthander, then batting him farther up in the lineup against one of the three best lefthanded pitchers in baseball!

    Seriously.

    WT swinging at everything Santana is throwing up there until finally achieves that pop up out to RF.

    Rocket just foul down RF line for Bruce. His season in a nutshell.
