Gary Majewski was placed on the bereavement list [wife is having a baby] and recalled LHR Danny Herrera.

Having a child is categorized as "bereavement" :confused:

Can't they just say, "personal leave" ???

They should bat Phillips leadoff during this time. I know he's not patient (though he has been better this year), but at least he won't ground into any double plays.

Cabrera's a better bat than Bolivar, though I'm not going to necessarily want to see Cabrera ever play shortstop. He's more of a utility guy who can stand at the shortstop position, but it may be painful watching him play defense there.

Hopefully Keppinger's rehab goes smoothly and he's back in a week.

I'm thinking his rehab schedule just got knocked up a gear. I look for him back after the Cardinals series unless he has a setback

Have seen him on MILB stand in at various infield and outfield positions. Appeared to be filler to me. Guess he will do in a pinch.

I really hope Herrerra doesn't have to go back down when Maj comes back. I want Maj back to prove what he was doing is the real him, but I would like Herrerra up as well. Hopefully we can make a trade for one of our pen guys or Lincoln goes.

I'll put five across the board on Patterson to win, place and show up leading off.

I wouldn't mind a week of Phillips being crossed trained at leadoff to gain some bat control.

Phillips is slated for a day off today. I'm not sure if that changed with the injury to Hairston, but don't be surprised to see Andy Phillips in at 2B tonight and probably leading off.

Well you know that it has been reported that Dunn might have some arm problems, and Junior has that knee problem and of course Bruce went over the rail to catch that fly ball, might need a couple days off.............Oh, never mind, Dusty is too fast for me. :p:

And some quotes.

* As for Bruce leading off, Baker said, it's "through the process of elimination."

* Good news for Jerry Hairston Jr. today. The break of his finger was "the best case scenario" Dr. Timothy Kremchek told him. He should be back in two weeks he said. He'll be taking batting practice in a week and continue to do everything else, because it's on his non-throwing hand.

* I asked Ken Griffey Jr. if he felt 600 was devalued by the questions surrounding the last two players to accomplish the feat. "600 is 600. I understand what's going and whatever people think, 600 is 600."

Griffey was asked if he wanted to return to the Reds next season and said, "That's not up to me. It's a two-way street. I can't control that." He did say that there's a "love-hate relationship" between him and the city and the city and him.

Griffey on Joe Nuxhall night tonight: "Joe is a big part of this city, not just Hamilton County or Nuxhall County, as some call it. This is his day. I'm glad I can be a part of it, but it's his day and his family's day."

Griffey on "being stuck" on 599 -- "A lot of people would like to be stuck on 599."

He said he wants to play as long as he's having fun and is able to play.

Video will be coming soon (limited, because according to MLB rules, I can only post 120 seconds.)

* Adam Dunn said the feeling at Dolphin Stadium was weird. "It wasn't how I pictured it -- packed house, elongated celebration. ... It was like he hit it at Ed Smith."

On 600 home runs: "It's like thinking about Bill Gates' money. It's mind-boggling."

Of course, I added, "it's like thinking about Ken Griffey Jr.'s money."

Dunn also joked about Paul Bako's night: "I could just see the headline, 'Bako hits 2 home runs, Griffey hits one for No. 600."

"I don't what was more unbelievable."

* I asked Dusty Baker if he thought he was cursed at shortstop.

"I don't believe in curses. I heard enough of that **** in Chicago."

BTW, Bruce is the new leadoff hitter ... Dusty just had to kepp "No Stick" Janish near the top(hitting 2nd). If Jay gets on base, Janish may get 2 or 3 sac bunts in the game.

I really don't see what the city has ever done to him. He's made stupid statements like "they want me to fail" and I'm sure Reds fans have noticed that he refuses to do post game interviews on FSN-Ohio. All the while we (the fans of Cincinnati) appreciate him for what he has been as a Red: a declining superstar who has accomplished amazing things in this game.

06-10-2008, 05:38 PM
I wonder what Dusty's criteria were for his process of elimination? This is how I imagine it went:


Maybe I should lead off with Phillips. No, Dude is a clean up hitter. Maybe Dunn? HA! What am I thinking, that's an RBI guy right there. How about Votto? Wait, when I played, Garvey never led off; Couldn't possibly work. Janish? That's too much pressure for a young kid like that. Better bat him SS.. err second. Eddie Encarnacion? With THAT batting average? You crack me up, me. Junior? 600!? Dang, clearly our best hitter. I respect him too much to move him off #3. Not quite Hank Aaron though. Henry taught me everything I know. Back when I played. Did you know I played and we played the game the way is was meant to be played? Cause I did. With Hank Aaron. Bako? Hmmm... it would help split up the lefties... Oh wait, we got that Bruce kid. Yeah, he's hitting .400. And I'll be darned if he's not our CF. Perfect!!

Yeah but Dusty, Phillips has more "SPEED" than the young kid Bruce that you don't want to put to much pressure on, and speed is the number two reason behind respect, er um number 4 reason behind CF, SS, and respect for making out the batting order.

Dude, I don't think you understand. Bruce isn't old; He plays the game right way. Phillips IS a cleanup HITTER. He HITS and he does it in the CLEAN UP spot. I know he's fast, but he's too good of a hitter to bat up in the order. We need him to make things happen. Maybe if you played with Hank Aaron, like I did, you'd understand.
