    7/4/12- Game Thread- Reds @ Dodgers (There Will Be Blood!)

    Sorry for the hyperbole...... But it's the 4th of July.

    Zack Cozart 6
    Drew Stubbs 8
    Joey Votto 3
    Brandon Phillips 4
    Jay Bruce 9
    Ryan Ludwick 7
    Todd Frazier 5
    Devin Mesoraco 2
    Mike Leake RHP

    vs. RH Aaron Harang. Harang pitched against the Reds once in 2002 for Oakland. He went six innings and allowed a run in 5-3 A’s win.

    Only four Reds have faced Harang: Miguel Cairo (0-for-1), Scott Rolen (5-for-31), Wilson Valdez (2-for-3) and Ryan Ludwick (14-for-33). Ludwick has three home runs and nine RBI.

    It does bear saying that it truly boggles the mind that this manager cannot see fit to change or move around players in the lineup ....at least once in a while.

    Pure laziness cannot just be an issue......and I do not mean putting Cozart and Heisey as #1 and #2.

    Ludwick has killed Harang....even if it was long ago and probably most of it at Cincy....but would he not be a better fit as #4? Does not Baker sometimes use stats to justify starting 1 person over another based on their hitting record?

    Is he this obtuse? Does no one lend an ear and give any suggestions to him? I man someone he at least respects...beacuse it's sure not bloggers, posters and writers.

    I think the Dodgers should hold Harang in reserve in case the game goes into extra innings. He was very good in that outing against San Diego years ago.

    I am so glad this is just baseball and nothing too important rides on the decisions of Baker, his staff and the front office. Stubbs hitting second is complete incompetence. If your using him for just his glove don't handicap our scoring chances like we have for 24 straight at bats. Laughable.

    His lifetime OPS batting second is about .800.

    So that makes it make sense to hit him there tonight?

    Am I the only one getting the Dodgers feed on FSN right now?

    Not that I mind Vin Scully.

    Stubbs is 0 for his last 24. Now for 25.

    Scully says Votto is undoubtedly the best left handed hitter in the major leagues right now.

    Another double with no one on base for Votto - and the beat goes on there

    Reds will fix this at the All Star break. To speculate.

    typical Reds first inning
    "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."

    Another wasted Votto double. Hitting Cozart and Stubbs 1-2 is a lineup killer. And I rarely complain about lineup order.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.
