Here are the lineups via baseballpress.com. I can't believe I'm posting a lineup to a game I'll actually be attending. Look for me, I'll be the one wearing a Reds cap. :D No Cozart. Looks like no slump busting tonight with that lineup.

4. Scott Rolen (R) 3B (http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/split.cgi?id=rolensc01&year=Career&t=b)
5. Jay Bruce (L) RF (http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/split.cgi?id=bruceja01&year=Career&t=b)
6. Ryan Ludwick (R) LF (http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/split.cgi?id=ludwiry01&year=Career&t=b)
7. Willie Harris (L) 2B (http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/split.cgi?id=harriwi02&year=Career&t=b)
8. Ryan Hanigan (R) C (http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/split.cgi?id=hanigry01&year=Career&t=b)

With Phillips out, wouldn't seem like an ideal time to rest Cozart.

Unless there's some number out there showing that Valdez/Harris hit the Nats pitcher Zimmerman particularly well.

it is a very small sample but Valdez is 3 for 5 lifetime against Zimmerman

Then play him at 2nd instead of Willie Freakin' Harris! There's an off-day Monday, Cozy can rest then.

Stubbs doesn't look lost, so much as he looks like he has no game plan when he goes to the plate.

Most of the Reds hitters look that way, to be honest. It's like the opposing pitchers are playing chess and the Reds are playing checkers.

Talk across Cincy, Northern KY, and parts of Dayton during the break centered upon whether Baker will keep Arroyo in for the 8th. Much rejoicing occurs as Dusty does and Arroyo does Ramos. Then lefty kryptonite chases our superhero behind a protective layer of lead otherwise known as the Reds dugout.

Now Dusty must figure out a way to deal with a reign of Nattitide falling upon the Reds...Dusty decides to Ondrusek the Nattitude.

Dusty is having quite a year so far. I don't get why Chapman was not being used. If he is going to be in the bullpen use him there.

We've been Dusted again!

I don't blame Dusty for that one. It is going to happen sometimes.

I just hope that next time Dusty doesn't decide to leave Arroyo in there to try and avoid this happening again.

Everyone and their mother wanted Dusty to bring in Bray in Arroyo's last start and in yesterday's game. He finally does today, and he's an idiot for doing it.

True, and if he would have brought in Chapman, and given up a bouncy homerun, Dusty still would have been the idiot.

Understand the point but you still have to find a way to win some of these games. I left the TV for a bit there so I didn't see how gassed Arroyo was but I don't know why you don't just go to Marshall and finish it.
