    Stubbs will likely be back be back in the lineup today. He’ll also likely be in the second spot, i.e, Baker is not considering doing him down in the lineup.

    “He took off this year when I put him second,” Baker said. “You hope, during the course of the year, whoever I put in front of Joey (Votto) takes off. Like I keep saying it’s like putting your finger in the dike trying to re-arrange things.

    “He’s one my one main speed threat. If you drop him down to seventh and he steals, they’ll walk the catcher to get to the pitcher.”


    I don't even know where to begin with this Dusty-ism...
    So what does Dusty do to prevent that? Bat Valdez 2nd and put him in CF. That'll fix the offense. How about a new order!!!!!????!!!!! So frustrating.

    I hate running people in front of Votto. They don't get on base in front of him as it is, caught stealings with him either up or do up makes me angry enough to write a strongly worded letter
    "But I do know Joey's sister indirectly (or foster sister) and I have heard stories of Joey being into shopping, designer wear, fancy coffees, and pedicures."

    Edinson Volquez's first pitch is a ball. Not the first time I've tweeted that. ‪#reds

    Valdez surpasses Stubbs' hit total for the month.

    Votto just tipped his cap to Volquez on that change, LOL.

    What if your hat was a little sideways?
