    I don't think the Reds are televising today. FSN Arizona is, so you can watch it through them if you have MLBTV or the EI package.

    Cozart and Stubbs batting 1 and 2 is like the nightmare you never wake up from.
    "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 remember in years past the Reds would struggle to get to 79 wins... Let alone have it done by the end of August!

    ...despite the lack of production at the top of the order. Phillips now feeling Votto's pain with his bases empty two baggers, needing a two out hit from the cleanup hitter.

    Would like to see Latos bounce back in a big way today. Need to get him dialed for the playoffs.

    I certainly understand Dusty getting tired of having his lineups second guessed.
    However, there is considerable research to back that putting high OBP guys at the top of the lineup yields the best results. ( See http://www.beyondtheboxscore.com/200...your-lineup-by)
    While I fully realize the Reds have the best win-loss record in MLB at the moment, it could be even better with better lineups. I say why not try it, and see what happens.

    My general lineup would be:
    1. Phillips
    2. Hanigan
    3. Votto/Frazier (1B)
    4. Bruce
    5. Ludwick/Frazier (LF)
    6. Rolen
    7. Cozart
    8. Stubbs
    9. Pitcher

    You can call me a ‘glass half empty’ guy, but I am actaully a perfectionist who always strives for the best my team can do. Nothing wrong with that, and in the playoffs it may make the difference between winning or losing.

    Dusty doesn't make the lineup you would make, so he's careless?

    10 pitches, 2ks and a popout by Cozart is our first inning.
    Is it "next season" yet?

    Dback announcers also talking about how inept our top 2 hitters have been.

    I can understand Dusty's aversion to Hanigan #2, I really can. I would love the baby steps of just going BP #1, Cozart #2.
