Reds

1. Shin-Soo Choo (L) CF
2. Zack Cozart (R) SS
3. Joey Votto (L) 1B
4. Jay Bruce (L) RF
5. Todd Frazier (R) 3B
6. Xavier Paul (L) LF
7. Ryan Hanigan (R) C
8. Cesar Izturis (S) 2B
9. Bronson Arroyo (R) P

#6 thru #9 is a light hitting bunch in that lineup. At least Izturis is at the bottom of the order today. I hope after this year Jocketty finds someone else to fill middle infielder back-up role who isn't on their last leg and can hit a bit more. I remember Reds camp getting excited about Izturis's bat in spring training but that has yet to parlay into any type of regular season performance.

No wonder this team struggled to score runs over the weekend. Look at the batting practice schedule. They are spending a -10 minutes honing their hitting skills. That can't possibly pay dividends.

I think they were counting on Jason Donald. Izturis had a hot spring (spring statistics don't count or so they say) and Donald got injured. These things happen.

Or maybe they're swinging the bats so hard and fast that they reverse time. Like Superman did at the end of one of the movies.

The guess on Phillips from Dusty yesterday was 3 or 4 days. So don't be surprised if he misses this entire Rockies series. Hopefully he will be back by the weekend.

Marshall is eligible to come off the DL June 5th (Wednesday) but have not heard if we will actually be ready.

I hope the Pirates lose some games now. Their bullpen got used much against the Reds.

With all the talk about the Reds' head hunters, the Pirates repeatedly hit Reds batters and now Phillips is out because of it.

And the retaliation by Latos was to hit a guy (Walker?) in the butt and do absolutely no damage.

Pirates answer, of course, is that hitting Choo doesn't count, he doesn't get out of the way. Maybe, but at least one HBP of Choo was legit.

In any event, there was no reason to pick on Phillips, twice, and now he's out.

T-R-O-U-B-L-E. It's time to get Cingrani up here for the bullpen because Dusty isn't changing how Chapman is used. Looks like Cingrani started for the Bats over the weekend. Wait til Friday and get him here for the Cardinals series, continuing another month with the only lefty reliever (minus Chapman) being Parra is not acceptable. Parra really can only pitch to left handers and prohibits the Reds from using him for an entire inning.

Yeah, I heard that stuff about Marshall/Partch too. I guess we'll find out how reliable that info is.

I'm pretty excited, I just realized I can listen to the pre-game stuff on WLW. Out here in Nebraska, you can imagine it's a little hard getting their signal. Now, I'm streaming it thru the I Heart Radio app on my Roku.

Choo isn't hitting that line drive down the opposite field, third base line. In April the guy either walked, HBP, or hit one of those.

Those opposite field shots down the line have completely stopped.

Could be they are pitching him more inside, not concerned about the HBP, daring him to pull the ball.

Yes if you hit a bounced ball and it goes in the air that is a fly out. It is so rare I am not sure most know that rule but that is the rule.

How many times has a play like that even happened? That was a fluke play. Yes, he should have verified that the 1B had it, but I understood immediately how and why he missed the call. He's staring at the bag, and listening for the catch. He heard the catch beat the runner. The part of the play that was really bad for the ump was the 1b foot coming off the bag. Yes, it was a badly missed call. They happen. The percentage of close plays they get right is kinda astounding IMO. Sometimes I'm stunned at plays they get right when I can barely tell on a slow motion replay.
