    Hamels struggling with location all night. Should have had 4 to 5 BB by now.

    Wonder if that long sit on the bench messed with Hamels.

    I think most accept him as a really good player, but he has been somewhat streaky over the last 2 seasons. Some pretty bad months and some really good ones. If he can be more consistent over the rest of the year he should be able to shake it.

    Well according to batting order calculators, switching Votto and the pitcher should result in an extra 12 runs scored over the course of a full season. That would be around one win. Switching Janish and Lewis would have significantly less effect.

    Seriously...the entire batting order thing is ridiculous. Gomes is now somewhat gone, we have to figure something else to blame the poor play on.

    Anyone know off the top of their head when the Willis DL is retroactive to, or was he hurt yesterday?

    If you switched Votto and the pitcher I bet Joey would have 75 (just a guess) or so less PA than if he batted 3rd. Factor that along with the point that you are removing him from the meat of the lineup...I gotta think that will cost the Reds more than 12 runs.

    It would also get more people on base for Stubbs and...Janish.

    They need to stop bringing up Maloney. He's human batting practice.

    Stubbs played the wall really well on Howard's and looked lost on Ibanez's. Though it really didn't matter anyway, he was way off.
