5/22 vs ATL

Reds lineup vs. Braves

Cozart 6
Stubbs 8
Votto 3
Phillips 4
Bruce 9
Heisey 7
Cairo 5
Hanigan 2
Latos 1

*At 22-19, the Reds are three games over .500 for the first time this season. Since STL won last night, they remain a 1/2 game out of first place.

*Caleb Lloyd, the Thomas More College student that caught two home run balls has extended his fame to a second day. Lloyd was invited to be an honorary captain by the Reds and will be on the field pregame for the lineup card exchange at home plate.


I still don’t see the logic of Stubbs in the 2-spot – yes he did well last night but why put a guy who strikes out that much in front of a great hitter?

Should be Hanigan or Phillips.

The Reds are winning with high speed chases with Rolen on the bench and apparently what must claim is a bad line-up —wow—I had to live with certain facts like money ,but now if we get people in the seats maybe we can pull it off—–Whitesox sign Hudson did the Reds consider him?

juxberg — Stubbs is hitting .294 from the no. 2 spot this season, with 5 HR, 12 RBI and 6 steals. What more do you want?

When will Dusty learn as Bruce was red hot and so when we got to New York for first game Dusty rested him and he has not hit the same since, I remember with big red machine they all played everyday and all this playing jump around just screws everyone up, let the player decide what and when he needs rest when he is a Bruce , Phillips or a Votto , they are pro’s and know what is best for team and themselves.

Does Dusty learn ,well he has some Stubbs in the 2 hole has been good,now let’s pray that Chapman doesn’t get what he should.

I posted this earlier to another poster making the error you do here: There are so many myths that swirl around that team these days. They had a trivia question the other day that revealed the myth you reflect. In a two-year stretch (1975-1976), at the height of the Big Red Machine, that much-vaunted starting “Eight” played together in tact less than 30% of the time!

Reds were facing Santana when Bruce was given the break, not the end of the world. As for the BRM — in 1975 and 1976, only one player played 162 games in both of those seasons. It was Pete Rose. None of the other regulars played 150 games. I have a feeling Votto will be good for 159-160 and the rest, assuming good health, will fall in the 145-150 range. That’s about normal.

Denny, same guy posted on the last blog.

I see…wow, the memory is mostly shot!

Brandon Beachy is an excellent young pitcher. Tough assignment for the Reds. Latos shows as much promise as Beachy, but hasn’t had the stellar start to his season as his counterpart. Expecting a pitchers duel.
