What does it mean? I don't know.
April 16 - 3-4 loss to Pittsburgh at home. Leake starts and Dusty plays Cairo at 1B and Janish at 3B. Votto and Rolen get the day off.
April 17 - 4-5 loss to Pittsburgh at home. Cueto starts and Cairo plays 3B. Cordero blows it in the 9th.
May 5th - 5-4 win over the Mets at home. Cueto starts and Cairo plays 3B.
May 18th - 5-4 win over Milwaukee at home. Bailey starts and Janish plays 3B.
May 20th - 9-10 loss at Atlanta. Leake starts. Cairo plays 3B. The fiasco game where we give up 6 runs in the late innings to lose it.
May 30th - 0-2 loss over Houston at home. Leake starts again. Janish plays 3B.
June 6th - 5-4 win at Washington. Arroyo starts. Cairo plays 3B.
June 13th - 3-7 loss at home to KC. LeCure starts. Cairo plays 3B.
June 23rd - 3-0 win at Oakland. Cueto starts. Cairo plays 3B.
June 29th - 6-9 loss at home to Philly. Leake starts. Cairo plays 3B.
Plenty of reasons why we lost. Most of those were day games. If Rolen doesn't hit a pinch hit HR in the 9th to tie the game on May 18th, the record is 3-7 when he doesn't start.
Leake has started 4 games where Rolen didn't start.
Cueto has started 3 games where Rolen didn't start.
Bailey, Arroyo, and LeCure have all started 1 game where Rolen didn't start.
Leake probably wonders why he gets shorthanded when he starts.
Should have been 5-5 if we'd have won that game in Atlanta we let get away when we were up 9-3 heading into the 9th inning.
