    At this point, I think Price is simply trying to get himself fired....

    Hamilton CF
    Peraza SS
    Winker LF
    Duvall 1B
    Gennett 2B
    Ervin RF
    Barnhart C
    Blandino 3B
    Romano P

    Sitting Votto any time is dumb, sitting him when he's got a .382 average against the opposing pitcher is asinine. Batting Hamilton & Peraza 1,2 is even more idiotic.

    Peraza is something like 9 for his last 22. With that lineup who else would you want hitting in that spot over him

    He's got a .243 OBP. That's atrocious.

    If, and it's mind-boggling they'd even consider it, they're sitting Votto the lineup should be Winker, Blandino, Duvall, Gennett, Ervin, Barnhart, and them some fashion of the other 3.

    Joey Votto has gone 13 for 34 with a dinger, triple, 4 doubles, 5 walks, and only 1 K in his career against Michael Wacha, who's starting tonight for the Cardinals. .382/.450/.647.

    Interesting time for a day off.

    I'll take the guy that's been hitting his last 5-6 games over Blandino. He was 0-8 in Louisville for the season before he was called up.

    I'd like to see Barnhart moved up at the expense of Duvall. He's been awful

    Votto had a streak of 202 consecutive starts. Will wait to pass judgement until Price meets with the press. If it is just a day off, agree that its crazy

    It’s just a day of rest for Votto. He and Price discussed him getting days off before the season and agreed this would be one of them, especially after extras last night #reds

    Votto vs. Cardinals starters this series....

    Wacha: .382 (34 ABs)
    Weaver: .250 (4 ABs)
    Mikolas: Never faced
    Martinez: .158 (19 ABs)

    Let's give him a day off against Wacha....Makes sense.

    Winker should be in the leadoff spot until he quits getting on base and Duvall should not hit any higher than 5th and preferably no higher than 6th all year.

    Let's see, he needs a day of rest after 11 games and there have already been 3 off days including rainouts. This entire organization is clueless.

    The discussion about stats made me wonder - what time frame of stats are important when making out a lineup? Should the manager look at who had a good night the previous game, a good week, a good month? Obviously career stats and matchups are important. But for those players where it is more iffy, what stats would you look at when you make out a lineup?

    In fact, let's do this. Make out your lineup for tonight. And keep Votto out of it because you agreed before the season started that this would be a day off for him.

    I am beginning to think that Price wants fired too. Some of the moves just do not make any sense at all.
