    That's a lot of ground for inexperience in CF. Is Ludwick hurt?

    It truly boggles my mind how ignorant Dusty is. If I was Votto, I'd be furious. I'm sure he is deep down, but would never say anything about it.

    Don't you get it? Dusty is challenging Volquez to throw something even Heisey won't swing at, thereby seeing if he can really mess with his control.


    Pure genius!

    I can't wait to watch the boys hack tonight!

    And batting Valdez 2nd and playing in him CF is hilarious, but CFers hit 2nd dude.

    Cozart continuing to leadoff is worse than Valdez batting second tonight, IMO.
    "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."

    Random: I was checking Cards/Rox box score to learn something of Fowler. As I was skimming through, I noticed something very frustrating: the lowest BA for the cards is .277 for Furcal. Almost every hitter sans pother is at .300. Is that a hitting coach thing or just good drafting and smart trades? Could it also simply be lineup construction? I want out lowest avg in our lineup to be .240, let alone .270+. Something needs to change and it ain't playing Valdez in center. Terrible lineup once again.

    I dunno, Valdez's career OBP is 287.

    At least Cozart makes up for his his .300 OBP with a little pop.

    Do you seriously think if you simply reshuffle the order you will change .230 hitters into .290 hitters?

    If you have people protected and in spots where they will see better pitches, yes. Confidence is also huge. Maybe .230 to .260 or .270 easily.

    Harang and Volquez back to back.

    Problem w/ Volky....are there any hitters besides JV in the lineup patient enough to expose his control issues?

    This gem courtesy of reds44 in the main forum via Fay

    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...
