    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.

    Um. Hmmm.

    Guess Joey needs a night off.

    But it pains me in deep places in my soul that when he does get a night off, it's Cairo at 1b in his place.

    That's like going from Scarlett Johannsen to Kathy Bates.

    I don't know what to say about Cairo batting 2nd and Hanigan batting 8th. Dusty just loves him some fixed roles and catchers bat 8th. Can't Gomes play 1st?

    And batting him 2nd is like taking Kathy Bates to company's holiday party to show her off...

    I'm not a huge Ramon fan, but why not play him at first instead of Cairo? I mean seriously?

    Alright now I'm furious. Votto OWNS Ohlendorf. What are the chances that Dusty even looks at this stuff before filling out a card?

    Votto is 1 for 8 off of Morton (Thursday's probable starter). Why not wait until tomorrow to give him a day off?

    Please use your brain Dusty.

    Can you "own" someone when you only have 7 at bats against a particular pitcher?

    I'm not sure ownership is determined after 7 ABs.

    Cairo went 2 for 4 with a walk in his last start in the 2-spot. Dustification.

    Would it make more sense to start him against a guy he is 4 for 7 off of or 1 for 8? (Morton, tomorrow's probably starter).

    Do those 7 AB's against one particular pitcher represent an overall hot streak or just a hot streak against a particular pitcher?

    Do those poor 8 AB's against Morton represent Morton owning Votto? Or Morton facing Votto when he wasn't hitting well?

    Is there any justification for sitting Votto today vs. tomorrow?
