    Brandon Philips up. Let's see how Brandon does with his new stance.

    He uses that stance to pop to right field.

    Well, after the bottom half next inning, hopefully the third time through the order will be the charm.

That's an amazing statement."

    Bruce needs a game or two off.

    Now the slumping Bruce. Nine straight retired by Hansen.

    Jay grounds easily to second base.

    I'm no luck, somebody else do the PBP. Thanks.

    Reds have played well lately, no reason to complain. They may come back and win tonight and, if not, they can't win every game.

    But I really wish they would do something to beef up this offense a little.

    Agreed with both sentiments.

    Arroyo with a one, two, three inning. Bottom five 1-0 Braves.

    Ludwick in a hurry to catch an early dinner with another first pitch out.

    Todd Frazier, more patient than Ludwick, same result, pop out.

    Somebody explain all the praise for Todd Frazier to me when you get a chance.

    Ryan Hanigan, for some unknown reason hitting 8th, singles.

    I mean is Hanigan batting 8th absurd or what?

    Catchers always hit 8th, they clog bases.

    He falls in the same bucket as some others whose #1 attribute is that they aren't a much maligned Reds player.

    You got me started, Cracker Jack.

    I mean, I can live with some of Dusty's regular things. He likes fast guys up first, usually CFers, ok, I can live with it. He often hits the SS second, often good bat manipulators, ok, not tragic.

    I don't mind splitting up the lefties, it has some basis in this lineup, there are only two lefties, I can see splitting them.

    But this business with Hanigan hitting eighth is just ridiculous. The guy has nearly a .400 OBP in an OBP starved lineup. Yet he hits in front of the pitcher.

    This makes no sense. I would hit Hanigan lead off. Or second. Or fourth. Or sixth.

    If there is a reason for Hanigan to hit eighth with this offense, I wish somebody would explain.
