Game 122: Reds at Rockies

Hamilton 8
Negron 4
Bruce 9
Ludwick 7
Pena 2
Hannahan 3
Santiago 5
Cozart 6
Cueto 1

**UPDATE: Todd Frazier is not playing tonight because lower back soreness. He is day-to-day. Frazier said he hurt his back during his second at-bat on Thursday and can’t run. He feels worse today even with treatment.


i-yi-yi…benching Mesoraco and Frazier when the chips are down. A move much like the last several years of management…no sense of urgency. The noose is getting tighter and tighter on “tomorrow”. I guess I will remain in a fog when it comes to the logic of benching your top two RBI guys…especially after losing three straight and being 6.5 games out. Even the WC race is getting dicey.

Exactly! Hey…must not be a “must-win”. Nuts.

Oh my! What in the world is the hunch that put this lineup out. At least Hanahan will get a chance to get his first base hit. BA since AS for this lineup #1 – #8: .190, .246, .195, .217, .333, .000, .173, .207. I’ll bet Rockies will be afraid to pitch around Pena(.333) with Hanahan(.000) following him. WOW.

Regarding Frazier – what else is going to go wrong at this critical stage. Under this circumstance I would think it would be important to have both Pena and Mes in the game.

WAy to go price. No Frazier and sit Mez?????? He hit 2 homeruns last game he caught Cueto. Now cueto can’t give up more than 2 runs or get a loss or no decision. What a joke way to treat your ace.

I didn’t like the lineup either. But what a difference with a few clutch hits. Cueto was fantastic. Santiago got 2 clutch hits and Negron delivered big time. Good game. Now let’s get ’em again tomorrow.
