If Stubbs can't hit ahead of Votto where on earth can he hit, scouts are seeing the same thing as everyone else, that Stubbs can't locate pitches and swings at junk. That being said Stubbs is the greatest scoring threat if he can just get on base.
My thinking is that the Giants, Dodgers, and Padres have pretty big outfields, and Dusty doesn't want Heisey out there since he's not a true center fielder, Heisey is servicable at GABP though.
So, who do you pencil in batting 2nd? In an ideal world, you gotta go with Cozart. but as circumstance dictates he's batting lead-off. So, who bats lead-off, you see the situation that Dusty is in? It's easy to complain about a situation, but you don't give any insite on how to correct the problem, unless you were being serious about Hanigan batting 2nd?
as far as the OT of the Reds pitching staff... breaking the modern day record of consecutive starts by a 5 man rotation seems remarkable to me. It seemed like last season the Reds 5th starter was a revolving door.
It seems like the west coast swing is bringing out fans true colors, the Reds are in 2nd place, you'd think they hadn't won a game yet.
"I feel like you are not big fan of Homer..I'm guessing your sort of fed up with him and ready to throw in the towel"
Yes, I fully admit to that. Also, we can't just start throwing out games because we could do that with any pitcher. If you throw out Homer's bad Milwaukee game then I could throw out Leake's bad outing against Washington and we're back where we started this discussion.
Your give me ONE GAME as evidence of the Dodgers offensive prowess without Kemp and Ethier??
The Dodgers are 6-14 in their last 20 games, which means before facing us they were 4-13 (.235) and were shutout SIX times in their previous seventeen games.Even including their series with us they have scored 46 runs in 20 games or 2.3 runs/game for more than a three week stretch. Is it any wonder they blew a six game lead? And before the last two days, they were TRAILING the SF Giants by 1 1/2 games, which means that they had lost 7 1/2 games in the standings prior to Tuesdays game with us..... We went up against dead horse and couldn't beat it. Not very encouraging at this point of the season.
I just told you in my post the sunday night game against the Mets right before reds came into town.............Read bro...
