With us winning, I guess it's a good thing that we can afford to keep everyone fresh. It's a long hot summer. And Valdez has been hitting better as he's started more.
Is this Ludwick's first clean up appearance?
Attended 1976 World Series in my Mother's Womb. Attended 1990 World Series Game 2 as a 13 year old. Want to take my son to a a World Series Game in Cincinnati in my lifetime.
The way Bailey has been pitching and with the Astros horrid lineup, im thinking 2 or 3 runs wins this thing for us.
During my 18 years I came to bat almost 10,000 times. I struck out about 1,700 times and walked maybe 1,800 times. You figure a ballplayer will average about 500 at bats a season. That means I played seven years without ever hitting the ball. ~Mickey Mantle, 1970
Phillips has really come up big since Votto went out. My admiration for Phillips as a player has increased watching him lead this team (as I believe he has) after the injury.
Overall, Phillips is an enormously underrated player in major league baseball. Leaving him off the All Star Team, for whatever reason, was a joke.
Take a rest, Brandon, but don't go too far away. We may need you later in the game.
I know he needs a rest but the way BP has been hitting I hate to see him out of the game. I guess sitting against the Astros is the best timing though.
Am I the only one actually kinda saddened by the lack of Xavier Paul?
"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."
How in the world does Ludwick hit ahead of Valdez?
This place use to be fun
How in the world does Bruce hit in the 3 spot when he's been as cold as the Coke Polar Bear? Frazier would eb a better pick. Oh well, Dusty's been winning games with his lineups
Cozart strikes out looking.
Stubbs grounds out to short.
