    Wow. Valdez in center. Has he ever played center before. At this point I think this is day 11 without Stubbs with no DL move.

    I just found the answer on Valdez from Fay's blog. He has never started a game in center before. He has played 3 innings in center in his whole career. One inning about 10 days ago and 2 innings back in 2007.

    More so than any other team, the Reds totally miss manage player injuries. Really, would it be that bad to put Stubbs on the DL? It's entirely possible that he, Heisey, and Mesoraco are unable to play tonight. What other team would start a game with 22 players?

    I'd rather see them play Bruce in center and put Frazier in right field with Cairo in playing third.

    I would put Ludwick in RF, he has played 2000+ innings in right in his career, but I agree that I would rather have Bruce in center than Valdez. Valdez has been doing well lately, is Cairo really a better option at 3B right now?

    I guess I would go with this alignment: Frazier LF, Bruce CF, Ludwick RF, Valdez 3B.

    Yes, that'd be better. Also, I hear Willie Harris is back on the bench. Stubbs to DL.

    I'm not so sure that having Bruce and Frazier playing out of position is worth the upgrade of Cario instead of Valdez.. Really, I like Cario as a person but he's not really been playing great this year.

    I guess I am going to support Dusty on this one. Valdez in CF only downgrades one defensive position.

    I think the lack of depth in the OF is the reason that the Reds didn't put Stubbs on the DL. They were hoping he'd be ready before the 15 days were up, but now Heisey's injury has forced their hand.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I miscounted Stubbs days. He last started on June 5th. So this would be day 10.

    And assuming Heisey and Stubbs are both unavailable, our bench tonight is Negron, Mesoraco, and Cairo.

    We are not even sure about Mesoraco. It could be down to 2 tonight. Dusty may have to use some of the pitchers like Leake to pinch hit.

    Cozart grounds out to the 3B on an 0-2 count.

    Valdez grounds out to the 2B up the middle, Murphy makes a nice play. 2 outs.

    Votto = DatDude2B
    "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."

    Votto doubles to right centerfield. 28 doubles on the year for him.
