Cozart and Stubbs are the Reds version of Dumb and Dumber.
Cozart should be batting 8th. Let him concentrate on his defense and stop worrying about trying to be a leadoff hitter. He simply can't get on base under the scenario Baker is placing him under.
Simon gets away with it
Always loved Fettucine Alfredo.

0-fer-9 from your top-two in the lineup against the division rival is proof enough that they should not have been batting there. If it was abnormal you could make a case for small sample size, but it's the norm for both Cozart and Stubbs. Baker has proven in other seasons that he's willing to tank a season and go down in flames trying to prove certain players are worth his belief in them.
