DUSTY STILL BACKS COREY
It’s not just me. Dunn and Dunner reports the following, after Dusty Baker chose to bat Jay Bruce leadoff.
“Boy, Jerry was doing a hell of a job,” Baker said. “I’m going to have to get Corey (Patterson) in there sometime because he’s starting to swing the bat good again. Made some adjustments. We’ll see.”
Bruce went 1-for-4.
Corey starting to swing the bat good again? He’s 2 for his last 26 with zero walks.
When has Corey Patterson ever swung the bat good? The guy has a career line of .256/.295/.411.
Do ya think Jay Bruce was a bit surprised that Baker put him in the leadoff spot? I’m going to guess yes. The Reds are in last place in the NL Central and have dropped 7 of their last 10.
