Not that Kearns is tearing it up right now, but he's batting .232 as opposed to .200, and with Kearns, he could just turn it on at any moment....he has more upside and more defensive range.

With Pena gone, Kearns should be getting playing time - Aurilia's role should be depth and backup now the Lopez has earned the starting SS job

At their respective numbers RIGHT NOW, Kearns is worth over 30 runs per 600 PA's then Aurilia this season.

Playing Houston doesn't feel the same with Bagwell out of the line-up. I noticed that he's been DLed for a while now with a right shoulder sprain, and having seen him play up-close in April, you could tell it was causing him some serious pain. Anyone read about his future with the club? Could his career be over?

Yep, so far. Two weakly hit balls (Taverez & Self) and then a called strike three on Biggio. Went to 3-1 on Biggio before getting him. The called third strike was borderline (kind of low and outside), but was identical to the called strike 2 on Freel when he was at 3-1 in the count (consistent ump).

Would I have liked to see the Reds score, of course I would. However, I don't really have a problem with LOB, since it's usually a sign that a team is getting people on base in the first place.

The more hitters get on base, the more runs that will score and the more LOB you'll have. But it could also be flukes (like, say off a pitchers leg), BB and baltimore chops... Not a sign of hitting the cover off the ball.
