Home sweet home!
Home sweet home!
Motto for tonight's game: Raisin' Cain!!
Heads of state that ride and wrangle. That look at your face from more than one angle. Can cut you from their bloated budgets. Like sharpened knives through Chicken McNuggets.
Looks like about as good of a lineup as we could run out there. Go Reds!
Hasn't Mes been catching Latos? I'd like to see Mes get the ABs, but I guess Latos could probably use a change of pace.

Dusty is pretty consistent the way he does his platoon's at Catcher. He rarely has a Catcher catch 3 games in a row on the season if both are healthy. He has them play two in a row. Hanigan caught the last game. Mesoraco caught the two games before that. Mesoraco probably catches the next two games against the Giants.
I like that hanigan is in there with latos, just to see if it helps. Cain has been on a roll too...runs might be hard to come by.

Even though it is Matt against Mat, I feel strangely confident about this one.
You learn something new every day. It might be important and it might be trivial. Today was a day for trivia. Mat Latos hates the Giants. He used to sign baseballs - Mat Latos I hate the Giants.
How well has Latos been able to channel that anger?
In nine career starts he has a 2.64 ERA against them to go along with a 1.00 WHIP and a .578 OPSA. In 58 IP he has struck out 45 and walked just 10. Of course, he did face them in two of the better pitcher's parks in the league.
Does anyone else think Matt Cain looks like the young guy who pitches to Roy Hobbs at the end of the Natural?
Variatio delectat - Cicero
I do see the resemblance. Matt Cain is on the right. In another bit of useless trivia, the lefty pitcher at the end of that movie was actually a righthanded pitcher. He said it was difficult to throw left-handed. No wonder Robert Redford was able to take him DEEEEPPP!!
Trivia time: After Roy Hobbs broke Wonderboy he used the ballboy's homemade bat. What was the name of that bat?

Looks like he's wearing a turtleneck on the right.

is latos gonna continue to be an awful pitcher or is he gonna get his stuff together tonight?
