7/7 at S.D.

Reds lineup vs. Padres

Cozart 6
Stubbs 8
Votto 3
Phillips 4
Bruce 9
Frazier 5
Heisey 7
Mesoraco 2
Bailey 1


*Here is the Reds rotation for after the All-Star break: Latos, Leake and Cueto vs. STL and Arroyo and Bailey will get their first second half starts vs. the D-Backs.

“We debated having Cueto start the first game but everybody else would have had a couple of extra days off and that would have been on his regular turn,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said.

*Rolen will return to the lineup on Sunday instead of today, but his back appears to be healthy and ready for playing again. But Frazier is 8-for-21 since replacing Rolen in the lineup last Sunday.

“[Rolen] checked out OK. Frazier is playing pretty good right now,” Baker said. “What I always like to do is when a guy says he’s OK, I like to give him an extra day. Frazier has been good against left-handers and very productive.


Dusty you are confusing. Ludwick hits left-handers better than Heisey. Heisey hits right-handers better than Stubbs. That seems like an easy decision.

So much for the comments in the paper about movon BP back to lead off. What does it take for Dusrt to wake up and bench Stubbs! If we do not get to te playoffs I want him GONE .. And i do not want David Bell

Don’t try to make sense of what Dusty says or does. It causes cranial flatulence.

We need to go get Juan Pierre from the Phillies. Here’s my idea for the batting order if WJ can make it happen:

1. Pierre CF
2. Phillips 2B
3. Votto 1B
4. Frazier 3B
5. Bruce RF
6. Heisey LF
7. Cozart SS
8. Hanigan C

Please your thinking is sounding more like Jocketty lack of common sense.

Read somewhere where Reds were going to use Phillips in the lead-off spot,boy everything is rumour only.

Never said he would definitely put Phillips at leadoff again. It’s something being considered. Big difference.

Why did Hanigan come in to catch Chapman? Is Mesoraco hurt? Do they not trust him to handle 100 mph heat?

I wondered that too. Dusty is big on not using the backup catcher unless there is an emergency. Hope he is ok.
