The thing I really can't stand about Valdez is he has no patience at the plate. He has only walked 5 times in about 120 ABs. When you are that weak of a hitter you should probably try to be patient and get on base to help your team, not have 1 pitch groundouts every AB.
Arroyo on a mini-roll. Seven straight.
Stubbs is 2-for-22 with 9 K's on the trip
7 strikeouts for Wood already.
How many 3rd strikes do we plan on taking today? Boy oh boy...

Hello Boys!!! Been watching the PGA today & read something about Votto news...When's he coming back??
I think it's fair to say that this is not a playoff-caliber offense.
Top two in the order are 0-6 with five strikeouts.
If and when Votto comes back, Dusty has to keep Ludwick in the 4 hole and move Phillips up in the order.
First two in the order are 0-for-6 with 5 K's, way to set the table fellas
That pitch was a strike for Wood, ball for Arroyo.
