First inning thoughts

Looks like the rain in Cincy is done and there's gonna be some baseball tonight, on TV no less. Quick thoughts on the lineup and the top of the first:

  • Duffy should've been benched for his performance in the 9th yesterday. He wasn't, and he got hit on the second pitch of the game, but failed to score on Jack Wilson's double into the corner. The healthy Chris Duffy I saw last year would've scored from first every time on that hit. Just saying...
  • It has to be maddening to be Craig Wilson. He went 2-for-3 on Tuesday against Capuano and co., had the at-bat of the year last night against Turnbow, in which he worked something like an 11 pitch walk, and still doesn't get the start against Claussen, another lefty, today. Seriously, it's driving me insane, I can't imagine what it's doing to Craig.
  • We're going to need 10 runs to win tonight, just a hunch.
