The ONLY good things I can take from this lineup:

1- Freel leading off

2- Lopez 2nd, where I feel he should be

3- Some protection for Dunn with Ears behind him.

Other than that, Randa 3rd....words escape me on that one. :screams"uncle"atdave:

Surprisingly, this is one of my favorite lineups put out lately.

I want Dunn higher and wish Jimenez didn't have to play, but I don't mind seeing Randa in the 3rd spot.

The top of our order could produce tonight. Hopefully.

Especially since there are something like 240,000 different combinations that one can use.

I get it?

Dave Miley values contact over secondary skills, he see contact to an out as being the "batting skill" not avoiding the out. It's a pretty common approach. But Dave also favors vet contact hitters over OB skills. I see what he's doing, hoping that he can avoid a string of strikeouts, Wolf is a LH, I don't begrudge Dunn being in the 5th slot against him, I prefer Kearns #3 though.

Passing the buck, but the offense is on pace to be worst then last year.

The EBH power of Casey and the low production from the majority of the RH hitters has made the Reds offense somewhat uneven.

Passing the buck, but the offense is on pace to be worst then last yearthere are certainly a number of offensive players performing below expectations. The only everyday players performing above are Dunn and Randa.

Absolutely. Last year the team was scoring 4, 5 or 6 a game. Every game.
Now its 2 or 3 for several games and then a 11 run explosion.

4, 5 or 6 will keep you in a game. With 2 or 3 and this pitching staff, you are going to lose EVERY time.

Similar Run average, different standard deviation.

3-1 to Abreu....fouled off 3-2 on a fastball on the inner half. Was late on it.

What happend to Steve?

He was trying to do his job, but was interrupted by Marty making extremely sarcastic remarks about how Dunn feels about playing 1B. Marty was saying stuff like "Let me just tell you, when Dunn finds out he's going to play first base, his eyes just light up." This was right after Dunn turned that DP. So Steve just said "Well, he conducts himself well at first base nonetheless," or something like that.
