    Probably the place to start the change.

    Reds averaging 2.75 runs per game so far this season. Opposition is averaging 3.75. Not exciting baseball, so the next time a thread appears on attendance, who wants to watch this? Not me. And to think that maybe we would have won if not for a poor managerial decision.

    But don't worry, that offensive outburst/fluke is coming soon. We will score 15 runs in one game, it will pad everyone's stats and Dusty will be safe to pull another starter with only 94 pitches, who seems to get stronger as the game goes along. Only to see the entire bullpen used up for no reason.

    Positives: Simon looked a little better. Harris got a hit as did Ludwick. Votto is still awesome.

    Negatives: Too many to list here. Shorthand version- CF, 3B and bench.

    Arroyo hasn't gotten stronger as the game has gone along since some point in 2010.

    I would usually agree with wanting anyone who has won in here after Dusty. But, not thanks to Titto. Too many problems in Beantown and not enough money here to win for him. He was a product of ownership's ability to put together a winning squad. Does this really look like one to you this year?

    I see a 8-12 start. Not good.

    Did you watch the outing tonight? They were chasing the slider away, away, away in the last few innings he pitched. Even the Nats radio guys were saying, thank you Dusty for taking Arroyo out. He could have at least went 8 tonight.

    Or maybe he gives up 4 runs before the 8th inning is over.

    I wasn't watching then, I'll accept your point, but for several years Arroyo has faded badly after ninety pitches. Tonight may have been different, maybe he was "on", but it's always risky to leave him in too long.

    Look, the bottom line is you have to score some runs. This team has pitched pretty well, it just doesn't score.

    Poorly constructed offense built around tons of average righty hitters, some below average. One guy couldn't make contact with an oversized tennis racquet.

    And when Arroyo hit the wall and blew the lead fans would have been all over Dusty for not pulling him. One thing you can definitively say about Baker is he listens to his players; I strongly suspect Arroyo indicated he was about done.

    Ditto. I've been a Jocketty fan but I'm starting to ratchet down my grade for him. Problems with the lineup are the same we've had for several years: no lead-off hitter, no real 4 hitter (at least as long as Dusty refuses to use Votto and Bruce back to back), way unbalanced to the right hand side. He just has made no progress on these obvious problems.

    I can't put this one on Dusty's head. They could have played 20 innings and the Reds wouldn't have scored.

    Ludwig's butchering of the Nady HR didn't help.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Janish currently has a 1.008 OPS. We could use him.
