    I don't think they'll see it that way, I think they would be satisfied to platoon Ludwick and hit him against lefties.

    It's certainly better to improve at CF, but probably a lot more difficult.

    But we'll see, this is being debated all over RedsZone.

    62 pitches for Cueto, low pitch count.

    Well, no outs, so "fairly low."

    Not sure when, but I do seriously think one of either Rolen or Cairo hangs them up during the season this year.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    #1...I hope so. #2...and I know you disagreed with me, but I doubt Baker would know what to do with it.

    You have to trade Stubbs and try and include Ondrusek...so you can take his favorite toys away (Or one of them) This is the only manager I could think of that would bat Eddie Joost 7th and Dave Chalk 2nd if he had them on the team.

    I think they are overacting about that catch. It was a great catch but one if the best ever? Probably not in the conversion. Would not surprise me if it is not the number 1 play on sportscenter or MLB network tonight.

    Cabrera fouls out to left. Maybin to 3rd. 1 out.

    I don't disagree, it depends on the move. It may be obvious for Dusty. It may not involve much discretion.

    Again, I'm less concerned with batting orders and such, and more concerned with personnel.

    I think Walt has been very quiet and must be working on something. The issues are SO obvious.

    Bruce may outhomer Votto by 5-10 in a given season, though sometimes it's a push. I just don't know that Bruce will spend his entire career in Cincinnati. I think that Votto will still be with the Reds after Bruce has moved on.

    Make no mistake. Cueto owns the inside part of the plate. (and then some)

    I like it.

    Could have lived without hitting Marquis with the pitch, though.

    Leads the NL in HBP? I like it too....not a headhunter.....he just works the inside and it really helps him. Not scared of going inside like a lot of pitchers have been for the last 20 years.

    Why go inside like that to a weak hitter, though?

    Valid point.

    But it wasn't just Marquis. It was the guy who singled off Johnny earlier.
