If this were the Bengals I'd agree since you get only 16 chances to make your run. However, MLB is all about the long haul which means that you win games but you also take care of your players at the same time. We are in a position where we can spell guys here and there and Dusty is 100% dead on correct in giving guys days off here and there, especially those who are nursing injuries like Janish.
2 times every month a player gets rest, that's dusty's policy. if you're coming off of an injury you get one more day than you or the doctors think you need. only player without these restrictions is probably Phillips and he's basically our captain.
Is Francisco out of options? If not, I wouldn't mind him staying down for a while longer. He looked no better than Gomes during his time up. If he's a trade piece (which I see him as), mashing AAA pitchers looks better than being below the Mendoza line in the majors all summer.

yay, Reds Live on SportSouth which has only happened the two other times they've shown the game. Viewers with FoxSportsSouth should check too
is my reference
homer should throw a splitter in the dirt
inside slider works too Fukudome is a tough out
Playing Edgar tonight is just more proof how Dusty uses "stats" to support his bad choices. Since 2005, Renteria is 3/16 against Zambrano, with three singles.
Since 2004, Renteria is 5/26 against Zambrano. Renteria’s success against Zambrano CAME IN the year 2003.
i mean really come on..
throw strikes please

homer is going to get it straight, slider missing sometimes needs a groundball
