Maeda, the best uninjured pitcher ever sent to the AZ rookie league, is back on the mound tonight.  He's had some success at Coors, perhaps because speed deception isn't affected by altitude and lack of humidity.

Jon Gray is on my fantasy team, so I've followed him closely.  He is hot and cold, sometimes dominating, other times very ordinary.  I'll gladly lose some fantasy points on this start.

Utley--4
Howard Kendrick--7
Seager, aka Stud Muffin--6
AGon--3
Yas--2
Reddick-9
Pederson--8
Segedin--5
Maeda--1

Might be a good idea resting Big Red. He's scuffled (1 for last 17) and has already set personal records for AB's and PA's. With Thursday's day off, this might be a good recharge, but he can always come off the bench in a key spot. Would prefer to see Toles in right. He has been very good.

Chutley & Stud Muffin on base then Howie & AGon w/garbage AB's and Yas K. The offense is off the gravy train and back to sucking eggs. 
Can we get the Cincy staff again?

Telecasters, please top making excuses for Red Dick.  He tries to hit through the shift and somebody makes a diving stop.  Hello!  There are three guys stationed over there.  It's not all bad luck.

My biggest beef is his batting order spots. First cleanup and now 6th when he deserves to bat 8th until he stops sucking. Segedin & Toles batting 8th is a waste of many hits that we could use higher up in RBI spots.

The Irony of Reddick as opposed to the Chronicles of Reddick is that all the ex-Dodgers like Puig, CC, & Ethier are better than him. He's a clear downgrade than all of them.

All the guys who were on fire are now slumping and having ugly AB's.
JOSH REDDICK GOT A HIT BABY.

Reddick's hit all for naught after Rob gets another hit but w/2 outs and pitcher up. Lineup construction is hard for Donny & Davey. Would be nice to bat guys who either can't hit or walk a lot hitting in front of the pitcher. 

Some beat reporter in Miami was giving Donny shit about his lineups recently and he fired back angrily at him. LOL

Roberts pulls Kenta after 5 low 80's pitch count for Kike w/2 outs 1 on. Guess what? He K'd just like Maeda would. 5 inning manager goes hand in hand w/the 5 inning starters. DO NOT BITCH ABOUT STARTERS NOT GOING DEEP EVER AGAIN MR. ROBERTS.

Roberts has his pets and Kike is one of them. You can just tell by how much he uses him.
