Game 52: vs. CLE



Still don’t understand why Dusty is sticking with Cozart in the 2 hole! Paul would be the better choice and drop Cozart down to 8 to help take some pressure off of him.

In the last week, Cozart is batting .400 with a .423 OBP and a .560 SLG. Over the same period of time, Paul is batting .167 with a .286 OBP and a .167 SLG. While Cozart has not been great in the 2 spot this year, he has been great for the past week, so now does not seem to be the time to make that move.

Because Dusty would rather cut his right arm off than bat 3 LH in a row

Indeed. One of his many managerial quirks.

Interesting and telling statistic…

The league batting average is .216 with the bases loaded. Votto’s average with the bases loaded is .318. Very telling of what an incredibly great player he is, and more importantly, why. I still don’t fully appreciate the contract that was given him, however I have a feeling a lot of it will be as a batting coach and that ain’t all that bad. If that happens, I hope we extend it!
