May we please have a one-game moratorium on the "Reds stink" and the "Reds don't stink" commentary? It really detracts from the enjoyment of the game thread. I think by now everyone knows where everyone else stands on that particular issue. Thanks in advance.

Agreed. And if anyone wants to complain about Cozart hitting 2nd, well it's not going to change.


But Reds manager Dusty Baker has no plans on dropping Cozart in the order.

“I already had him down in the order,” Baker said. “I had down in the seventh hole probably half the time.”

Actually, Thursday was the 63rd time Cozart hit second. He’s hit seventh 17 times, eighth twice and ninth once.

Cozart has been better in the two spot (.253/.280/.370) than the seven spot (.150/.179/.333)

“You’ve got to learn some kind of way,” Baker said. “Someday, he’s going to be an excellent second hitter. We’re teaching guys how to hit at the big league level. There’s a difference between swinging and hitting.”

Latos K'd Upton on a pitch in the dirt. Mes couldn't find it, and once he did he drilled Upton in the back as he was running to first. 2-2 after one inning.

That inning, in short. 2 singles, then a fastball right down the plate to Freeman who hammers it to center for a game tying double. Walk on a questionable 3-1 call to McCann, Uggla fouled out near the stands, Upton struck out but reached as Mes couldn't find the ball and then hit Upton on the throw to first, and Johnson struck out with the bases loaded to end the frame.

I think Baker will be kept because of the injuries. Ownership will accept injuries as the reason for the issues this season.

Could see a change if Reds fall badly out of the race, but my guess is DB is Ok because of the injuries.

Mes got a .668 OPS with bad defense when he was healthy. Not as if he looks that much worse right now. Just more of the same if you ask me.
