Stubbs bound and determined not to work his way back to the leadoff spot.
Valdez batting second is right there with all the greats Dusty has batted 2nd.
Bat his butt 8th if you must play him.
Pirate catcher has sunglasses on?
It's more about getting Valdez some playing time more than it is getting Cozart some rest.
Valdez showing his impotence.
That's where you want Votto to be coming up. Two outs and nobody on. Mission accomplished, Dusty.
You'd think Walt would eventually step in... But that's never been the case so I guess it's not happening.
Prolly gonna be a low scoring game today. Hope Arroyo is on his game.
Is the Reds' offense back? Or was that a GABP mirage?
Joey with 9 hits in his last 12 ABs, and only one RBI to show for it.
"I talked to an advance scout that told me if Joey Votto and Albert Pujols were on the same team he'd advise his team to do the unthinkable...pitch around Votto to get to Pujols." - Buster Olney, ESPN
