    Cubs - Reds - Tuesday 9/13/2011

    Leake's FINAL final start of the year.

    Phillips
    Renteria
    Votto
    Bruce
    Alonso
    Stubbs
    Francisco
    Mesoraco
    Leake

    This will be Francisco's 9th start at third since 9/1. Todd Frazier has made 2 starts there. I'd like to see Frazier get a couple starts at short. If he is going to be a utility guy then see if he can or can't handle the position.

    How did it evolve in baseball that batting a crappy, light-hitting batter in the two spot was a good idea? It just seems to me that you want to bat your better hitters as much as possible.

    You gotta think Cairo will be on the team next year, and deservedly so really. We know Rolen will be back, and it's looking like Francisco is making a strong bid to be here. Could we still have room for Frazier too? I'd like to if possible.

    His lack of PT at SS is telling on how management views his future there. At the same time it really couldn't hurt. I know he can play LF too so a backup out there is a possibility, but he'd have to get in line.

    I guess the worst case scenario for him is to wait on Rolen's first trip to the DL next year.

    Castro walks. Barney singles. Eek. Ramirez flies out and Pena strikes out. Big out. LaHair rockets to Stubbs as Leake wriggles out of danger.

    Nobody is suggesting that Frazier should play short on a regular basis. I still think they should take a look at him there.

    What has gotten into Brandon Phillips? Another bomb. Renteria doubles. Votto walks. Dempster shaky out of the box.

    The only number Stubbs is getting is 200 - as in Ks.

    First and second with nobody gone and the runners don't budge. Bruce Ks. Alonso lines hard to left-center. Stubbs Ks. Yawn. 189.

    Sorry but this first inning is more proof why this team needs to get hitting over pitching. To only score 1 run is laughable when you have runners at 2nd and 1st with no outs and score NO ONE...

    Frustrating as it is...the pitching is the main problem. The "proof" is out there for all to see:

    7th in ML in runs scored. 5th in ML in HR. 12th in ML in BA. Have left too many on base this year but well, so has Boston.

    23rd in ML in ERA. 25th in ML in walks. 23rd in Earned Runs.

    A bat would be nice. But 'nuff said.
