    Another Sunday loss thanks to you know who

    A comparison of the players genius decided to start today over the ones who sit the pine most of the game:

    On base percentage:

    Corky Miller: .277
    Ryan Hanigan: .448

    (I guess Hanigan needed a day off those after the strenuous stretch of two games he had to catch in this week. )

    Laynce Nix: .265
    Chris Heisey: .373

    (Nix is going to be DFA'ed, I hope, when Dickerson is back healthy)

    Miguel Cairo: .331
    Paul Janish: .397

    (Neither are spectacular, but what does Janish have to do to get a start anymore? Especially with Cairo's horrible defense)


    Thanks Dusty. Chances are if you started those three guys this game, we break through at some point with a couple runs.

    i think the reason Corky started was that he caught Wood in the minors and has since he has been up here.. I agree with you about Janish.. He should have been in there instead of Cairo.

    What does it MATTER who caught him in the minors though? EVERY pitcher when getting promoted has to use a new catcher, and get used to a new catcher, all throughout their careers. And when Hernandez is healthy, Corky is going back to the Bats.

    I don't understand what kind of logic goes through Dusty's head in these decisions. He's more concerned with stupid crap like that than the things that actually get you a W.

    My only problem is that they dont plan out these off days better. There is no reason to have 3 starters sitting on the same day. They do it an awful lot, be it Stubbs, Rolen, Cabrera, or what ever mixture of 3 normal starters.

    yeah but the last time he caught him he almost had a perfect game so why mess his chemistry up if you don't have too.. plus Hannigan hadn't hit crap his last two games..

    Yeah because obviously who is catching you totally matters. Thank God we brought up Volquez rehab catcher for him to have a good start yesterday.

    And wow Norris, what a crazy, horrible horrible stat that is. If I recall as well, the last two months we've won like two Sunday games.

    And GIDP, as for the off day, we've played TWO games after a 5 game break. Outside of Rolen who was sick, Dusty shouldn't even have taken guys off today anyway. We had three guys in our lineup today with sub .300 on base percentages! Holy crap.

    Just to clarify, Hanigan is the one that caught Wood's start in Philly, not Corky. Remember.... Hanigan had the two at-bats with runner on 3rd and one out and had two of his only eight strikeouts of the season in those two at-bats?

    Hanigan didn't start because of the day after night game.

    Apparently St Louis didn't get the memo that you're supposed to play your worst players on Sunday, as they rallied from a 4 run deficit in the final 2 innings to win 5-4. We're exactly where we belong to be now: not in first. No illusions or "but but ... we're still in first!" excuses today.

    Wake up Walt, get us some bench players, and set Dusty straight on how to run a freaking team.

    Pujols, Rasmus, and Molina sat. Allen Craig batted third. Suppan started. I'm pretty sure they got the memo.

    St. Louis will win the Central by 5-8gms watch and see. I hope im wrong but with Dusty running the Reds they will never make the playoffs. he seems to think sundays are throw away games and nothing more. It seems like he never plays his A team on Sunday. I can understand resting players but not more than 1 regular at a time. He sits 3 and 4 regulars during some games and it makes no sense. Oh well i guess its time to sit back and watch the train wreck that is Dusty Baker derail this Reds team. They will finish 10 gms under 500. i bet.
