Billy Hamilton and Dee Gordon together?!?!


I just read on twitter that the Dodgers are open to trading Dee Gordon and I know that the Reds don’t need a 2B but it sure would be fun to have Hamilton and Gordon on the same team. Which one would you bat #1 and which one would be #2? Then with Joey Votto batting #3 would make a pretty interesting combo.

Greinke strong after early stumble, but bats quiet
Zack Greinke settled down after giving up a two-run homer in the first inning, but sufficient damage had already been done. The right-hander gave up just those two runs over six innings, but took the loss as the Dodgers were shut down by Cincinnati starter Alfredo Simon in a 4-1 defeat at Great American Ball Park on Thursday.

Simon gets the win over Greinke and the Dodgers

#Reds Simon vs #Dodgers Greinke 06.12.2014


Alfredo Simon faces Zack Greinke in duel of eight-game winners
Eight-game winners Alfredo Simon and Zack Greinke face off as the Reds face the Dodgers in the series finale on Thursday afternoon at Great American Ball Park.

Dodgers vs Reds

Alfredo Simon 31 | P
8 – 3 ERA 3.15
0 – 1 ERA 9.00 (Career vs LAD)
Simon allowed three runs on seven hits over six innings to beat the Phillies on Saturday. He is 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA (6 ER in 6 IP) in three career appearances (one start) against the Dodgers.

Zack Greinke 21 | P
8 – 2 ERA 2.62
5 – 1 ERA 2.73 (Career vs CIN)
Probably should throw out the last start, an 11-hitter over seven innings, because it came at Coors Field, where Greinke deploys a damage-control strategy. All things considered, he’s been the club’s best starter this year.

#Reds Cueto vs #Dodgers Ryu 06.11.2014


Johnny Cueto, Hyun-Jin Ryu set to duel in Cincinnati. Hyun-Jin Ryu has been great on the road all season. Johnny Cueto has been great all season. So, if you’re a fan of pitchers’ duels, it’d be a smart decision to turn your attention to Great American Ballpark on Wednesday when the two square off.

5 – 5 ERA 1.97
1 – 5 ERA 3.19 (Career vs LAD)

#Reds Leake vs #Dodgers Beckett 06.10.2014


Intriguing matchup finds Josh Beckett dueling Mike Leake. The Dodgers and Reds have played one-run contests in six of their last eight meetings, with each team taking four games. There is no reason to think that trend might change when the teams play the second of a four-game series on Tuesday night in Cincinnati as the Dodgers send Josh Beckett (2.57 ERA) to the mound opposed by Mike Leake (3.29 ERA).

Dodgers vs Reds

Mike Leake 44 | P
3 – 5 ERA 3.29
Leake had his worst outing of the season in a loss to the Giants on Thursday, giving up five runs on eight hits in five innings. In five career appearances (four starts) against the Dodgers, he is 2-2 with a 4.80 ERA.

Josh Beckett 61 | P
3 – 3 ERA 2.57
Beckett pitches with an extra day of rest, which should be welcome in his third outing since the 128-pitch no-hitter. A 2.56 ERA underscores a comeback-of-the-year season.
