    Re: 6-18-10 Reds vs Mariners

    OK, someone correct me if I'm wrong but didn't we put up like six runs on Lee the last time we faced him when he was with Cleveland (and was on a tear that year that led up to the Cy Young)?! I swear I remember that and if we can't put up too much against him, maybe they can at least run up his pitch count so they can pounce on their bullpen and really do some serious damage. And regarding Cairo, at least he's not batting higher in the order tonight. Gotta find the positives everyone, LOL

    I'm glad part of this west coast trip falls during the weekend when I can stay up late to watch the games. I'm sitting here with my green tea ready to watch the game and like all other good Reds fans around the country, I'm also doing my nails. I know you're all jealous, LOL :

    If we're going to go with a small sample size, what about Nix this year against LHP? 8 ABs .375 .444 .500 .944.

    If Cairo is 5 for 9 career, why not lead off?

    It's too small a sample to even be a small sample size. It's a micro sample size.

    A mini sample size?
    Tiny sample size?

    Itty bitty?

    It's two games worth of at bats.
    A nanosample?

    I think the Reds gave him his first loss that day. That was right around when Jay was called up, no?

    Seriously Dusty? You couldn't have a great defensive OF and Gomes DH?
    There's so much here to chew on...

    Safeco's left and center tend to hold up flyballs so a flyball pitcher like Cueto can be given a boost by having a great defensive outfield. Left field almost plays like centerfield so it's especially desirable to have good defense there.

    Not sure I understand the outfield tonight in that light.

    That said, Safeco rewards left handed hitters.

    We have two in the lineup tonight.

    Really with Lee on the hill what's Dusty supposed to do I guess? Dusty is playing against the pitcher, not the park.

    Cairo at DH though? I'm perplexed there.

    Anyway, Gomes will probably have a webgem, Cairo will probably hit two homers, and the righties will likely pound the ball senseless...

    I remember that match up.... was it Cueto or Volquez he was matched against.... I think it was EV who was also having just as nice of an early season?

    If Brandon hadn't been running, that ball might have dropped.
