Drew Pomeranz, who experienced left arm soreness during his start last Friday night, was skipped during his normal turn in the rotation on Tuesday, but he has been throwing without pain and will return to face Arroyo and the Reds.

"We just want to get him back out there pitching. That's how he is going to learn," Rockies manager Jim Tracy said. "We wanted to make sure that physically nothing is wrong and get him back out there. On Friday, it will have been a week."

I'd like to see Xaiver Paul get a shot in the 1 or 2 hole. Maybe Stubbs will stay hot though. Looks like Cardinals going to pull it out over the Cubbies.

Could be a high scoring game with an inconsistent young lefty against Bronson Arroyo in Coors.

Arroyo has not faced the Rockies this year. His last start against them was 9.10.11 and he only lasted 1 ip with 3 hr, and 6er.

Against a lefty?

Paul is likely an awful option at the top of the order against anyone. Stubbs is definitely superior against the lefty.

RedlegJake
07-27-2012, 09:38 PM
Given the "success" of our leadoff hitters I don't know I'd call Paul an awful option but against a lefthander I agree, Stubbs is definitely the better call, especially as he's been hot lately

On the minor league game thread, Stephenson is pitching in Dayton. Tons of scouts at the game clocking his pitches. They just said one of his pitches hit 101 mph.

RedlegJake
07-27-2012, 09:40 PM
Stubbs in the 2 hole is so much better statistically which I find puzzling but it is a clear difference

RedlegJake

Arroyo can't get a pitch to bunt, butcher boy swings and misses at two of them, and K's as he foul bunts a 3-2 pitch.

Tom Servo
07-27-2012, 10:31 PM
Rolen with a liner off of Pomeranz's leg, no play for the fielders. Ludwick advances to third. 1st and 3rd, 1 out.

_Sir_Charles_
07-27-2012, 10:31 PM
Blast off the bat of Rolen...right into the legs of Pomeranz. Single and Ludwick moves up to 3rd. Ludwick was lucky there. If the 3rd baseman even looks at him...he's dead.

Shin-BURNER. Hit just below the knee...more on the calf than the shin though.

SS isn't a problem, Cozart just needs to hit lower for awhile. He isn't a leadoff and never will be.

Tom Servo

Can't expect elite production at every position. Cozart just shouldn't be leading off.

I don't recall a single person saying CF wasn't a problem.

*grin* Well, he IS right in this case. Drew's been good lately, but most of it's been in the 2 hole. Zack's been struggling mightily for a while now. I like the idea of moving him down...but not of Frazier leading off. Phillips, (bare)hands down.

Of course. BUT is it not allowed to comment on the game or do we all have to be Stepford posters and be happy no matter what happens? Just asking. That was not a criticism but just thinking out loud.

Well, you're preaching to the choir here with that comment. :O) It's never positive enough around here for me. And the piling on drives me nuts. But in this case, he's right. For the sake of Zack if not the team, he needs to move down in the order. He's clearly putting too much pressure on HIMSELF right now.

Thankfully, he's professional enough not to take his hitting problems with him out on defense.

Cedric
07-27-2012, 11:35 PM
Winning now is exciting. Doesn't mean it's not damn near impossible to envision the Reds winning something that matter with out machines like Stubbs and Cozart hitting 1-2. I think Walt realizes this.

I just think that some posters get lost in the little things and miss the bigger picture. The team is rolling. I'm not going to get bothered by what a certain player is doing. It isn't hurting them 100 games in.

Nice snag by Stubbs! Right there....that's where people take Drew for granted. Most all other CF'ers have to layout for that one. He makes it on the run.
Love him or hate him, this team is much better with Stubbs in the line-up.

Give me the honesty. I'll never forget the time Eric Milton was 100% done, gassed, out of life as he loaded up the bases in a close game and Narron came out and talked to him, and left him in. Milton proceeded to give up a monster grand slam to Carlos Beltran.

Simon again. Nice.

I think some of these late inning pitching decisions are designed to avoid using Chapman. You would have expected Arredondo there, but maybe Dusty wants Jose and Marshall available for the last two innings.

Of course, doesn't always work, sometimes Chappy is necessary despite Dusty's intentions.

NJReds

85 pitches ... Think altitude had something to do with it? Stubbs saved that inning, and he made that catch look easy, too. He got a huge jump on that ball.

Well, that's the fault of the coaches. They should know their players enough to be able to tell when they're done. Same goes for the catchers. But the old saying does hold truth to it, "great players WANT the ball". That's not a shot at Bronson. He wants the ball too...he's just humble enough to know when he's done.

Winning now is exciting. Doesn't mean it's not damn near impossible to envision the Reds winning something that matter with out machines like Stubbs and Cozart hitting 1-2. I think Walt realizes this.

Yep. And I'm not really satisfied at all with just winning the division, the road there is fun though regardless, and I never have seen pitching like this here before on the whole.
