    Cowboy is on point today. Now he's talking about how Hanigan should be batting second in front of Votto.

    Hanigan flies out to right. 4-0 Pirates mid 7th.

    I expect a double-switch, Frazier in at 3rd batting 9th, and Lecure for Simon, batting 7th.

    Re: 5/28/12 Reds Vs Pirates

    Today's game isn't THE reason I'd like to see a switch in manager's, it just epitomizes it. In my mind, lineup constriction and bullpen usage are the two areas that a manager really influenzes a game on a daiy basis. I'm not really critical of Dusty when it comes to the bullpen, but when it comes to lineup construction, I couldn't detest Dusty's more. Batting guys like Valdez a the top of the lineup is indefensible.

    Scoring runs by means of methods other than a home run is horrible for this team. Part of that is on the players, but Dusty fails miserably when it comes to what he can control - putting players in a postion to succeed. batting Hannigan who always seems to have a high OBP (currently around .375) 8th, while batting a nothing-stick like Valdez second is unforgiveable. Now I'm not saying that hitting Hannigan 2nd would make a bit of dirrerence today. Over the course of a month (much less a season) though it would definitely lead to more runs and likely more wins.

    Not saying its all Dusty by any means. The organization does not value OBP or OPS and does not value offensive potential on the corners. It also does not value production off the bench - that is mainly on Walt.

    Yep. Those wins against the Yankees and Braves actually get erased and replaced with losses with every loss to the Pirates. Little known rule

    One more inning for Simon, switch maybe next inning.

    I hope walt doesn't wait til late July to make some upgrades. This bench isn't MLB-caliber and there are too many holes in the lineup. There are trades to be made this time of year - the reds got neon deion around this time of year.

    These games that we're seeing today aren't acceptable.

    I'm not so sure. Cairo is 38 years old now. He's looked VERY slow in the field and his bat has looked very slow too. We might've gotten his last 2 solid part-time seasons. And Frazier...I firmly think he's our 3rd baseman for the future. His defense will only improve. His bat is more than good enough. He needs reps (as does Cozart).
    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

    Simon did great today, and kept us close enough to have a little hope.

    Indeed. And hopefully Walt can soon find the hitting equivalent of Simon and Hoover.
    "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."
