3 in a row today? Sure hope so! Off to the park....
I wish Ludwick was playing today, but I can see why Dusty would want to give him some rest. Just wish it was Stubbs sitting and not Ludwick. Although Stubbs has been hot too, so really I'm just nitpicking. As bad as Sanchez is, I'm not sure that it matters who we run out there lol.
Ludwick has great stats in Colorado. He should play today,IMO.

Dusty rule: Have a good game then sit the next day. I think people were joking in yesterday's gamethread that Dusty would sit Ludwick today

Anyway. Let's gget win number 61 and 10 in a row guys.

"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."
I was just thinking Ludwick was so hot that he needed a day off. No reason to let him go out there and rake in his favorite park in MLB.
This is what drives a lot of people crazy about Dusty. I like Dusty overall, but my one gripe is lineup construction. If he wants to get Heisey a start, that's fine. Put him in CF and give Stubbs the day off. It's really not that complicated. Giving Ludwick a day off while he's this hot is doing a favor for the other team. Especially when Votto is already out of the lineup.
I know, I know, we've won nine in a row, our record is 60-40, how can there be anything to complain about? I get that. It's just that it seems foolish to give Lud a day off today. And, again, if Heisey needs to play (which I agree with) then put him in CF and put Stubbs on the pine.
