    8/23/12 - Reds @ Phillies

    Zack Cozart 6
    Drew Stubbs 8
    Jay Bruce 9
    Ryan Ludwick 7
    Todd Frazier 5
    Miguel Cairo 3
    Wilson Valdez 4
    Ryan Hanigan 2
    Johnny Cueto RHP

    No Rolen, no Phillips.
    "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."

    Why does it always seem to me that Cueto gets the Sunday Special style team behind him?
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    This line up befuddles me. I know Dusty loves to get playing time for his bench but under no circumstances should Cairo and Valdez be in the starting line-up at the same time.

    Bruce is having a hard time against LHP right now and you have the pitcher. I'm cool with Rolen having the day off but, no way Phillips being our main Lefty Killer, should be out against one of the 2 or 3 best LH Starters in the Senior Circuit.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    I have no problem resting some guys tonight. We have a pitcher who hopefully can keep us in it even with less offense, we've already got atleast a split this series. I want my best players playing this weekend when we can almost lock the division up going into the final month. If that means they sit tonight, then they sit.
    Is it "next season" yet?

    Yes, and it's too bad this is Cueto's turn. I know it's a great pitching matchup but I would love Cueto and Latos to pitch the first two Cards games.

    Phillips really needed the day off. He's played a ton lately. He struggled against the Cubs but has hit pretty well against the Phils. While Hamels is a lefty, Brandon needs the day before the Cards.

    Maybe Cairo and Valdez will come through.

    Phils resting Rollins.

    Cairo and Valdez will both haunt their former team tonight.

    Bruce Ks. Don't quite get Bruce hitting third against Hamels. Maybe Frazier three, Ludwick four would have been better.
