How will Carpeter explain striking out Drew Stubbs 4 times? I really like Stubbs...really I do, but I'm very frustrated watching him not only swing through pitches but also taking called 3rd strikes...gimme Heisey or move Bruce over and gimme Frasier


P.S. I hope he makes me look like a fool for the next few weeks

Latos has a terrible record against the Cards: Career ERA something like 9+, 11+ in St. Louis. Let's see of he can change that tonight...

I don't want the Cards to clinch tonight....

One could argue that Navarro should start at catcher in the playoffs.

I know it's impossible, won't happen, Hanigan is much better behind the plate.

My theory is that Navarro is maybe the only Red who is hitting and the Reds might need to score a run here and there to win playoff games.

Matt700wlw

I'm pretty sure it was just one at bat, to make up for the one he didn't get.

I feel like the Carl Reiner character in Ocean's Eleven....after hypothetically asking about robbing the casino and then says..."Oh, Ok then"

Dusty really wants this game, but won't sacrifice Latos to get it.

I agree with Dusty. Would have used Paul there but otherwise cool.

I do think Dusty hates the Cards sufficiently that he wants to beat them rather than watch them celebrate.

But he has a five inning rule for his main starters going into the playoffs. So Latos had to come out.
