    Re: 5/3/12 - Reds vs Cubs

    I think Dusty realizes that Harris is in serious jeopardy of losing his job in a few days when Cairo is ready to come back. Therefore, batting Harris No. 2 in the pitch-friendly slot ahead of Votto is Dusty's way of giving Harris one last chance to do something.

    You gotta think he is on the thinnest of ice and Dusty knows this.

    And why in the world do players need a day off after getting days off on Monday and Tuesday? That's ridiculous.

    Yes Cairo is starting a rehab assignment with Dayton tomorrow so it should not be too long until he is ready.

    Dusty broke one of his own rules today with this lineup. Two lefty's hitting together,Harris and Votto. I wonder why Bruce and Votto can't hit together on most other days?

    The Votto/Bruce thing has become sort of a punch line around here, and I agree that it probably is worth a try, I like hitting your best hitters in a row.

    But keep in mind that on most days every other hitter in the Reds lineup is a righty facing a righty pitcher.

    So using "RH" to mean right handed hitter, on most days the lineup would be:

    RH, RH, Votto, Bruce, RH, RH, RH, RH, RH.

    After Bruce's turn, the Reds would have seven consecutive righty hitters against a right pitcher most days. I think this is influencing the decision.

    You could try Wrigley South.

    Harris and Valdez. Dream team.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Valdez played a good game last time he started.

    No comment on Harris so far.

    I will say that I actually like Heisey in the leadoff spot. It seems like one of those moves that could work out surprisingly well.*


    *Yes, I know that by saying this I am almost ensuring a 0-4 day for him.

    Dusty giving Bailey a lousy birthday present with this weak lineup. Bailey will be pitching scared all day.
