    Unfortunately it's a pretty common occurrence for him. Swing at marginal pitches, watch the cheese down broadway.

    Valdez with a weak grounder to 1st. 4-0 Pirates mid 5th.

    This is a game that I blame the lack of production on Dusty. TERRIBLE line-up, TERRIBLE, PH decision, just TERRIBLE!

    Valdez needs to be the next to join Willie in DFA land.

    This is very true. Stubbs has trouble picking up the ball IMO. The tools are there (he has a nice swing, good mechanics) but the pitch recognition is usually not.

    Enjoy your holiday folks. I'm going outside and DVR'ing the rest. This is a waste of time. Pathetic game plan from some of our hitters.

    It's easy to say this now, but I was thinking the same thing when I heard the lineup today. Has Dusty STILL not learned that Stubbs is uncomfortable batting leadoff? Stubbs should never bat leadoff. Let Valdez bat leadoff and keeps Stubbs in the 2 hole. Just when I'm starting to think I like Dusty, he does questionable stuff. His lineup construction has always been my biggest gripe about him. Case-in-point, he used to bat Paul Janish in the 2-hole all the time. That drove me crazy. Janish was the worst hitter on the roster, but Dusty time and time again batted him second.

    The fools gold of GABP is gone. This is the reds offense minus the HRs.

    "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."

    Nice sno-cone catch by Stubbs on the track in center.
