    I thought more of the regulars would sit today but looks like a good day to get a sweep!

    biggest hurdle today is going to be not striking out vs Greinke. Estrada and his 4.5+ era got 12 on us yesterday so there's no telling how many Greinke can rack up since he averages 1+ an inning ... hope we can pull off the sweep though, what a great response after losing 5 of 6 to CLE / MIN

    Stubbs side OK? He said it still hurt him some....big swing last night affect him or is Dusty being smart and letting him rest it today OR is Stubbs not going to play 39/40 games?

    I think they're just being cautious with him before this long roadie. On the radio broadcast before the game yesterday, I think they mentioned Heisey would be getting a start in center today even before last night's game action.

    Some random facts before the game:

    In six years and over 1100 plate appearances, Ryan Hanigan has never attempted a stolen base. For context, Sean Casey attempted 26 in his career.
    Joey Votto's offensive winning percentage is .858. Assuming average pitching and defense a team of nine Joey Votto's would be 63-10 right now.
    Mat Latos had eight swings-and-misses on his fastball and 16 on his slider in his last start, giving him a career-best total of 24. The 24 swings-and-misses are the fourth-most by any pitcher this season and the most by a Reds starter in the last four seasons.
    According to FanGraphs.com Brandon Phillips has had 149 balls hit into his zone and he has made plays on 148 of them. Slacker. He is projected to save a league-best 13 runs over the average second baseman. His Brewer counterpart, Rickie Weeks, is projected to be 25.7 runs worse than the average second baseman. They are at opposite ends of the second baseman fielding spectrum.
    As a team the Reds are OPSing .830 with nobody out. That drops to .689 and .684 with 1 and 2 outs respectively. How does the league do as a whole? .727/.714/.711. Any ideas as to what causes those funky splits for the Reds?
    The average NL team has 21 HBP so far in 2012. Red's batsmen have been plunked 19 times. Milwaukee must have pissed off the entire league. They have been hit a whopping 44 times! 17 more than the next highest team total.
    Cincinnati, as a team, ranks 4th in defensive efficiency. Suprisingly, the Reds have only turned 47 double plays so far. That is next to last in the league. Atlanta leads with 71 double plays. National League average is 61. Never would have guessed that.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    How can it be a rubber game when the REds won the first two?

    How good a fielder is Carlos Gomez if he pushes Nyjer Morgan to right?
