    NLDS Game 3 - Reds vs Phillies 10/10/10

    Hopefully it is ok to start this early but the last few months the Reds have always won when I started the game thread including to stop a few losing streaks so hopefully the streak continues tonight.

    Game Time: 8:07 PM ET TBS

    Pitching Matchup:

    Johnny Cueto (12-7, 3.64 ERA) vs. Cole Hamels (12-11, 3.06 ERA)

    Just to get this out of the way, Ramon is 3-6 with a 2B and HR career vs Hamels and Bruce is 1-12.

    I know someone is bound to ask.

    According to Jayson Stark's Twitter feed, Cabrera is now in the starting lineup at SS batting 8th.

    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.

    A true leader would know when he's not able to play, and would sit. I'm pretty frustrated by this.

    I wish the Reds would have listened to their voices of reason and gone ahead and removed him from the roster. I know they didn't want to risk the chance they made the next round, but given how pessimistic they were even a day ago, I can't believe he's in any shape to be playing (effectively).

    I admire toughness, but not at the expense of production. Especially in do-or-die situations like this.

    I don't like this decision at all.

    I give Cabrerea and Rolen credit for wanting to play, but at what point does it start to become detrimental to the team to start two guys who are so clearly hampered by injury?

    Nonsense. He just tells the team when he's ready to play to the best of his abilities. It's the team(manager's job) to decide if he plays.

    It's not like any of us know whether he's good enough to go or not.

    I don't care who's decision it is but I'd really like my SS to be able to make a strong throw to first base.

    I find it impossible to believe that he is 100% ready to go after obviously dealing with this for the last month+ of the season, and having to come out of game 2 48 hours ago because of it. There is zero guarantee it won't flare up in the 2nd inning tonight. He should know that a healthy Janish is better than whatever he is right now, and shouldn't put his manager in this situation.
