Reds: Choo 8, Heisey 7, Votto 3, Phillips 4, Bruce 9, Frazier 5, Cozart 6, Mesoraco 2, Arroyo RHP

Giants: Blanco LF, Scutaro 2B, Posey C, Sandoval 3B, Pence RF, Belt 1B, Torres CF, Crawford SS and Lincecum RHP

Reds start a 58 game west coast trip (I could be off on that number). Cozart is still not in the 2 hole. I repeat, Cozart is still not batting 2nd.

Despite not hitting Cozart in the two spot, it is likely the expert bashers will find fault with this lineup

I'll gladly take 6-5 on this road trip. It would be an improvement over what we've done this year on the road, plus when taken into consideration the team's history of traveling out West, and the packed schedule.

7-4 is the hope, for me, at least.

Heisey really isn't a top of the order hitter, either. But he's better then Cozart, so it's an improvement.

I'd like them to work Timmy a little....even though he's had 7 or 8 days rest he still went 148 pitches and I imagine Bochy won't keep him around too long....it's not like Bochy will let him go too long and try to get Timmy a win.

Reds by a TD.

Starting to think Arroyo is getting a benefit from all the 98 MPH throwers in baseball. Just don't see many pitchers like him anymore. In the old days there were a lot more pitchers relying on slow stuff.

I'm guessing Dusty decided that if DRob is ever going to play, it should be in this stadium with a huge outfield. I mean this is where you need his speed.

Reds couldn't homer in GABP but now they can in SF's huge stadium. I guess the opponent's pitching may have something to do with this.

He turns sac bunts into hits. Joey is my favorite Red, but he has really struggled this year in RBI situations. Bruce's walk was a great AB and kept the inning alive. Then Fraz comes through bigtime, and Mez and Choo go yard.

Nice start. I'm now in my usual "recliner, w/laptop to the side, Reds game" spot. :)

It was definitely the best fantasy baseball advice I ever got, although it definitely applies to business in general.

I remember picking up Jonathan Sanchez in my NL-only league the week before his no-hitter as a free agent. He threw the no-hitter and then I unloaded him a week later to an owner desperate for pitching. Previously I used to fall in love with too many players and was always late in being willing to trade them. But once I started treating them as assets and went off market value, it led to far more success.
