    Reds vs. Diamondbacks 4/10/2011

    Stubbs 8
    Phillips 4
    Votto 3
    Rolen 5
    Gomes 7
    Renteria 6
    Bruce 9
    Hernandez 2
    Leake 1

    First game thread I have ever started. Let's hope we win so it's not the last.

    Surprises to me are Rolen playing and Bruce in the 7 hole.

    What surpsirses me (mildly) is that Janish isn't playing. Leake is supposed to be this ground ball king. Seems that I'd want Votto-Phillips-Janish-Rolen in there whenever he's on the mound. I actually thought they would rest Rolen last night with flyball Arroyo pitching, specifically so he could be in there today.

    Bruce should be on the bench. He had one hit on a fastball all series. If opponents throw him anything but curves they should fire their scouts

    per fay
    BRUCE 7TH: Jay Bruce was seventh in the lineup for the first time. Edgar Renteria hit sixth.

    “With the left-hander, we’ve got some guys who hit (Joe) Saunders pretty good,” Baker said. “Renteria hits him pretty good. Bruce hits him well. But he’s kind of in-between now.”

    2nd time already that Rolen has played a day game after a night game. I'm surprised. The word was that he'd be around 120 games this year -- that's a day off every 4 games. We're at game 9, and he's started 8.

    Renteria has 5 AB's vs Saunders in the last 5 years according to a quick glimpse at the MLB preview page. Jay Bruce has 4.

    Playing Rolen and sitting Janish makes little sense but I made my peace with Dusty being a clubhouse guy and not a tactician a while back.

    I think Janish should spell Rolen...when Rolen does sit. Which would make Cairo a Phil Gagliano type of bench player. He only PH's and is pinch run for when he does get on.

    I am having to reboot my dvr. Has the game started yet? Is it still on MLB Extra Innings free preview?

    I'll always prefer that Janish starts...but it's pretty hard to argue with the moves Dusty's made thus far. He's been pushing the right buttons now for the past year and a half. He's earned the benefit of the doubt in my book.

    Single to center for Votto. Phillips to third.

    May have been the most impressive AB from Votto yet this year.
