Here's the Red Leg lineup per Fay. No Stubbs. Wouldn't surprise me if he's on the DL since we know Negron is coming up. Need a good game from Cueto tonight and more importantly a win!

Zack Cozart 6
Chris Heisey 8
Joey Votto 3
Brandon Phillips 4
Jay Bruce 9
Todd Frazier 5
Ryan Ludwick 7
Ryan Hanigan 2
Johnny Cueto 1

Need a big outing from Cueto tonight, Reds need to make some hay while the Cardinals are struggling. I may be way off base but, the Pirates still don't scare me.

I like this lineup for the Reds.

I like this lineup for the Reds.

Also gotta like the pitching matchup. Let's do this.

Really? Cozart leading off (.248 obp)? Phillips in clean-up(.427 slg)? Hanigan(.361 obp) sitting at the bottom of the order?

Yeah, I'd like a re-do on this lineup.

Phillips
Hanigan
Votto
Bruce (swap Bruce/Frazier if we MUST split he and Votto)
Frazier
Heisey (swap Phillips/Heisey if we face a lefty)
Ludwick
Cozart
Pitcher

Clearly not ideal, but we don't have ideal hitters...so what are ya gonna do?

Cozart swings at his second pitch and pops it up. A few steps on the outfield grass for the shortstop, one down.

In case you're wondering, they're showing Negron. He's wearing Sabo's old number.

elfmanvt07
06-06-2012, 08:27 PM
Votto chokes up with two strikes, and hits a week grounder down the first base line. 3 unassisted. End of 1, no score.

_Sir_Charles_
06-06-2012, 08:28 PM
LOL. Brantley..."this is a case where the numbers don't tell the whole story. You want a guy who's hot right now and that's why Negron's up here". Really? Apparently 0-21 equals "hot recently" now. :O)

elfmanvt07
06-06-2012, 08:30 PM
Grounder back to the mound, Cueto fields his position. One down.

elfmanvt07
06-06-2012, 08:31 PM
I swear, they have this camera angle on FSO that must be directly above home plate. They ALWAYS focus on the grass behind the pitcher and the pitcher is always out of focus. It's grown to be a pet peeve of mine.

_Sir_Charles_
06-06-2012, 08:31 PM
PRETTY! Nice scoop on both ends there. Phillips & Votto

Medium grounder up the middle. Phillips with great range, throws to Votto who makes a NICE pick.

Baby tapper to Frazier. Easy inning for Cueto. Redlegs coming up.

Strike zone is all over the place. Called "strike" to Hi-C. Previous pitch called a ball...clearly a strike. Horrible.

Is it just me or in that last AB to Heisey was ball 2 the exact same pitch as strike 3?

I think it was a make-up call. The ump CLEARLY missed that next to last pitch.

Good call by the ump. 4 pickoffs so far this season. Anyone know who leads the bigs?

_Sir_Charles_
06-06-2012, 09:08 PM
LOL. That would've been GREAT! Grounder to Phillps, but he was turned around so he flips it to Cozart hoping he could wing it to first to get the hitter. No dice.

elfmanvt07

When I was at one of the Yankees Reds games, I thought he picked off someone and let loose a groan. The guy behind me gave me crap. I turned around and told him that he CLEARLY doesn't do his homework. Cueto simply has the best pickoff move in the bigs.

Considering the defensive infield behind them...that's a downright travesty.

I went through this in my thread about Reds Stats Thru Fifty Games.

Latos and Arroyo are definite fly ball pitchers. Homer Bailey tends toward fly balls. In the bullpen, Hoover is an extreme fly ball pitcher.

The ground ball guys are Cueto, Leake, Marshall, as I recall.

elfmanvt07
06-06-2012, 09:13 PM

That's fair. The difference with Ludwick is I expect so little from him that I'm happy to sarcastically deify him anytime a good thing happens.

I've never understood that thought process. A guy walks someone on 4 pitches and people expect the next batter to automatically take pitches until he throws strikes. I think it's the other way around. You know he's thinking about it at the start of the next batter to POUND the zone with a fastball. I'm looking dead-red for a fastball down the middle on pitch #1 there.
