    5/23/11 - Reds at Phillies

    Stubbs 8, Janish 6, Votto 3, Phillips 4, Rolen 5, Bruce 9, Lewis 7, Hanigan 2, Arroyo RHP

    Words can't express the awfulness here.

    Gomes not starting against a LHP? Is he gone? Janish in the 2 hole vs. one of the best pitchers in the game? Lewis starting vs. a LHP? Seriously, what is going on???

    Won't matter.

    Arroyo 1-5 5.54 ERA vs Philly. They kill him regularly.

    Prophetic.

    On a side note, after the Reds' loss tonight and the Brewers win (they're up 6-1 on the Nationals in the 7th), Milwaukee will have tied us for 2nd place. And honestly, given the upcoming matchups, it might only get worse before it gets better.

    Yuck.

    I'm not one to complain about lineups. But I don't get Janish batting second. I love his defense, but he bats 8th or 9th for every other team in the majors. How he bats second for the Reds is beyond me.

    Even Janish's mom can see he shouldn't be batting second. Dusty Baker is the only person on the planet that would pat Paul Janish in the two hole in a Major League Baseball lineup.

    For the record, Hamels shuts down righties as much as lefties, technically, just a bit more.

    OPS allowed against:

    RH - .692
    LH - .710

    I wonder if Janish is getting the Gomes "this is your last chance" treatment before they have to do something with SS.

    I really wonder if they will change the lineup later and put Frazier in Lewis's place. They have not officially added Frazier yet as they have to make the corresponding roster move. After they do it would make much more sense to have Frazier facing a lefty rather than Lewis.

    Dusty never plays guys on the first day they come up to the team.

    Lewis is playing because he apparently has a decent track record against Hamels. Janish on the other hand doesn't have decent numbers period. So he hits 2nd with Lewis 7th????

    And what exactly is the aversion to starting Heisey in LF?

    As the REDS go quietly in the first, I was about to ask
    "How long before we bail on this game?"
    ...but there was nobody here.
