    5/1/2012 Reds vs Little Bears

    Here's the Reds lineup via baseballpress.com. I was looking at the radar earlier today and it looked like rain could be a problem tonight. How's it looking in Cincy right now?


    . Zack Cozart (R) SS
    2. Drew Stubbs (R) CF
    3. Joey Votto (L) 1B
    4. Brandon Phillips (R) 2B
    5. Jay Bruce (L) RF
    6. Scott Rolen (R) 3B
    7. Chris Heisey (R) LF
    8. Ryan Hanigan (R) C
    9. Bronson Arroyo (R) P

    If that one big patch rain goes east the game should be OK. If it goes south then it may be in trouble.

    I have to laugh, it was so predictable that Stubbs would hit second tonight.

    I wish somebody could explain why they removed him from the second spot last week. It was working. So he went back to leadoff and he slumped again.

    After a tough game Sunday, I kind of figured Drew would hit second tonight. Hey Reds, Drew gets good pitches hitting second. He's coming off a tough year and can do damage in the two spot. Leave him there. Thanks for your time.

    Maybe because it wasn't working for Cozart?

    Probably correct. With Drew "back on track" Dusty probably thought Cozart was slumping and could benefit from the two slot.

    Given Drew's very tough 2011, I just think the decision was hasty. Drew needs the reps in that two spot, let him see good pitches and regain his confidence. He also can do more damage in the spot, Drew has the power.

    Let's hope both Cozart and Stubbs do well in the next stretch of games and solidify the top of the order, one way or the other.

    To make it fair they should alternate every other game.
    I know a lot of people are talking about his on-base percentage (.308 in 2008), but I like to think more in terms of him his in-scoring position percentage. - Our Beloved Manager

    Then drop Cozart lower in the lineup...don't bump him UP. And for goodness sake, get Brandon out of the cleanup spot. Have HIM leadoff.

    It looks like the first round of heavy rain is almost through the area but there is a small break and then a second round coming in. So I think they get the game in but I expect there will be delays.

    They are getting ready to put the tarp back on to get ready for the next round of rain which should be starting soon.

    Tomorrow night is on WGN. Too bad Thursday afternoon is not on there since it is not televised locally

    Doesn't look like it. I checked their online schedule and it doesn't show any Cubs games until sunday (dodgers).

    ~edit~ Go with RF's, maybe the online schedule isn't up to date.
