    Coste flies out for out 1.

That's an amazing statement."

    To give an idea of Janish's ceiling, it seems like he is crushing the ball lately, but his latest streak has been at a .712 OPS rate (not counting tonight).

    I'd say unless Stubbs just never develops at all, Stubbs will be the better hitter.
    The thing with Janish is that lately every hit he has is a double. There's no way he can sustain it, but while he's the double-machine...I'll just sit back and enjoy it. :O)

    But yes, Stubbs is gonna be the real deal I think. As long as somebody keeps kicking him in the rear about being aggressive on those meatballs down the middle...he'll be fine. Despite the doubters...that power is legit.
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    Aaron Boone (with an ovation) flies out for the Reds win.

    Re: Reds vs. Astros - 9/15/09 Bruce (and Nix) return

    So am I correct that Oswalt does NOT have a win against us this year?!? I think he's now got four no decisions against the Reds which for our guys is a HUGE deal since he usually owns us. Maybe we're finally breaking that annoying streak! GO REDS!!

    Stubbs has a real hard time with "spinning" pitches. The first thing he needs to learn is how to recognize breaking balls and then not to swing at them when they're unhittable like in the dirt. Learning to actually hit them is further down the line.

    That's an interesting way to put it. Honestly I've never heard it said that way. Interesting analysis.

    Basically he can't hit a curveball yet. A very common issue for young players. The ones who overcome this become productive starting players. Those that don't have short careers and are role players. We'll see where Stubbs fits in. In his case he not only can't hit them, he can't lay off them either
