I figured that Adam Dunn in the #7 spot, coupled with a Jimmy Anderson sighting, would touch off more of a response.


The April 2003 rotation of Jimmy Haynes, Ryan Dempster, Jimmy Anderson, Danny Graves, and Paul Wilson might be the worst Reds rotation I've ever seen. Even the horrible teams of the early 80's had Mario Soto. I doubt that any of those five could crack this year's rotation.

What is even more amazing about that rotation is that supposed favorite in the division this year thinks it is a good idea to take one of those guys and put him in the rotation.

Chris Stynes in the leadoff position just seems wrong.

Chris Stynes leading off in 1997 (.348 avg/.394 OBP) or 2000 (.334 avg/.386 OBP) is a good thing.

Stynes leading off in 1998 (.254 avg/.323 OBP) or 1999 (.239 avg/.310 OBP)? Not so much.

If given the same personnel you would probably see such a lineup this year, split the lefties.
