    Cozart GIDP.

    Cozart rockets one back to the mound, but they turn two.

    Arredondo warming. Stubbs waiting to k. there it is.

    Stubbs tried the 'hitting a single' thing but decided it was easier to strikeout again, so he does. Reds leave Navarro stranded.

    6-2 to the bottom of 9.

    He's been abysmal at the plate this year, I don't think anybody will argue that point. But at the same time, he's been VERY good defensively. So here's the question, why do we have to do anything with Stubbs? It's not like he's hurting us. It seems like he should be, but we're in first place with the best record in the majors...so just how much is he really hurting us with the bat that he's not making up with the glove? Right now, the only change I think that is needed is a move in the order for him (and Cozart), but considering where we are in the season...does anybody really think Dusty will change it since if you look at the standings it seems to be working?

    Useless trivia:

    With the exception of May of this year (48), Stubbs' 42 strikeouts are more than Adam Dunn has ever had in any month of his career.

    Drop him off at the zoo and move while he's gone.

    Ironically, that's how Stubbs got his job from Wily Taveras.

    I thought we left Wily on top of the car and just drove away.


    Wheeler flies out.
