Okay, here are the rules for the game: post a lineup that Dusty hasn't used so far this year that you think is better. Lets see how many different batting orders RZ can create that they feel is better than Dusty's...

The same as mine except for the addition of Bruce and bumping him ahead of Bako (which I would do as well, if given the option).

Wow do I feel special. :D

And Bruce's spot in the lineup is only to ease him in. Should he start out as anything resembling hot, I slide either Bruce or Votto into the leadoff slot (with the other at cleanup) move the catcher up one slot, hit the pitcher 8th and insert Keppinger into the 9th slot.

Tonight STL and MIL faced each other and both teams hit someone other than the pitcher 9th. Hmn.

Wow, Keppinger at leadoff every time but two so far. I agree with that, it's just amazing that Dusty don't see that.

I wonder if Dusty might have hard sold Patterson to the Reds under the CF, leadoff and speed premise/proposition in order to get Patterson to the Reds. Baker wanted a centerfielder and wanted a leadoff hitter and may have sold Patterson to the Reds for that purpose.

While thinking that the young Mr. Bruce would just go against the traditional paradigms of conventional baseball wisdom, and now is stuck with making himself look right in spite of the appearance of other to date? I think that we are seeing an escalation of commitment by Baker regarding Patterson and now Dusty is stuck with his confirmation bias at this time and that is biting him in the backside. Trying to force a square peg in a round hole.

OK, just to be different and because most conceivable lineups have been put out there.

Phillips
Keppinger
Griffey
Dunn
Votto
Encarnacion
Patterson
Bako
Pitcher

If Dusty's looking for speed and steals at the top, why not the 30/30 guy. It's worked for Soriano. And leading off, there's one less GIDP for him. ;) Votto and EdE could switch if you're sold on the left right thing, but this is what I'd go with. Of course, I'm not a manager, just an idiot fan.

This lineup would score 2500 runs a year.

Or something.

I'm coming around on the idea that Dunn's power is wasted unnecessarily in the 2 hole. I'd certainly never drop him below cleanup though.

vR: Screw LOOGYs -- let's score some runs in the first 6 innings.
