Game 143: vs. LAD

Reds Lineup

Shin-Soo Choo 8
Cesar Izturis 4
Joey Votto 3
Jay Bruce 9
Ryan Ludwick 7
Todd Frazier 5
Zack Cozart 6
Devin Mesoraco 2
Mat Latos 1

The obvious omission in today’s lineup is Brandon Phillips, who is dealing with the quad contusion he suffered on Thursday. Manager Dusty Baker didn’t like the way Phillips attacked a few groundballs at second, saying he “wasn’t gliding like he usually does.”

“I just told him to get as much treatment as possible,” Baker said. “It’s not quite hero time. Almost.”

I’ll have more on in a bit. Also, coverage of this morning’s unveiling of the Joe Morgan statue outside of Great American Ball Park.

The NFL playoffs are won most of the time on…defense and the quarter back play. MLB playoffs are equally won on defense and pitching. We have both and need only continue to hone and form our team to enter the playoffs. No matter whom we play, we need to enter running on all eight cylinders; as many healthy as we can get off the stretcher. We are now starting to get it into high gear, and momentum is a huge catalyst. Frazier and Cozart are becoming a nuisance for good teams.
