    5/5/12 - Reds at Pirates

    Good guys:

    Zack Cozart SS
    Drew Stubbs CF
    Joey Votto 1B
    Brandon Phillips 2B
    Jay Bruce RF
    Scott Rolen 3B
    Ryan Ludwick LF
    Devin Mesoraco C
    Mike Leake P

    Bad Buccos:

    Tabata LF
    Walker 2B
    McCutchen CF
    Alvarez 3B
    McGehee 1B
    Jones RF
    Barmes SS
    Barajas C
    McDonald P
    "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."

    Need to get on the board early to help Leake out. McDonald has had 3 good starts in a row

    Guys who are basically defensive replacements hitting 2nd and 6th, the best lead-off option hitting 4th and the best RH power hitting 7th and 8th.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    Other than that the lineup looks pretty good though.

    McCutchen back in the lineup. He's there sparkplug. We need to keep him off the bases. I know Mes has to catch sometimes but it seems Homer is the only pitcher that is working well with him. Maybe Leake needs a start with Hannigan to get straightened around. It seemed to have worked for Latos. I agree that Mes could get some starts in LF once in a while. Hannigan just calls a much better game at this point, and frames the pitches a whole lot better

    Okay, what in the world is that junk floating down in front of the outfield camera. It's a bit late for snow, right? :O)
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    In his last 3 starts McDonald is averaging 2 strikeouts an inning. Guy's been on a roll

    Watching these games in Pittsburgh really makes me want to go there and watch a game. This ballpark is beautiful

    Okay, on further inspection, it's got to be bugs of some type. They're all over the place.

    I was joking regarding the snow.
