I do believe the top of the lineup is much closer to what most RZers would like to see.

Phillips
Heisey
Votto
Ludwick
Bruce
Frazier

followed by

Navarro
Gregorius
Leake.

I guess Hanigan and Cozart can't play everyday. What does everyone else think?

Yeah, the top six would be the playoff lineup if I were in charge (and all of you should be thankful that I'm not...) - followed by Hanigan and Cozart.

I like that Cozart is getting a second consecutive day off.

I like it, now if they can score a few runs I'll like it even better. With Leake on the mound today I think they'll probably need at least 5 runs for a win today.

This is actually what I wanted to see....Navarro continuing to start every game Hanigan doesn't. That could mean he'll be on the post-season roster where the Reds could use his SH bat off the bench.

Also love to see Gregorius at SS today.

Reading the lineup today was possibly the most excited I've been about any lineup this season. The top six is perfection.

I'm excited to see what Gregorious can do.

What a breath of fresh air this lineup is now! Dusty has got to keep Heisey in CF.

If not Hannigan should bat second when Stubbs is in the lineup.
(I am sure this has been said a million times here ;) )

My guess Friday will look like this.....

Phillips 2B
Cozart SS
Votto 1B
Ludwick LF
Bruce RF
Rolen 3B
Stubbs CF
Hanigan C
Bailey P

Frazier will get plenty of starts when Votto, Rolen and Ludwick sit.

I'll guess Stubbs and Cozy switch.

Marty and Thom have been maintaining the last couple of days that Stubby will be dropped to 7th. You have to believe they aren't just grabbing that out of thin air.

I know....but how long? Remember that time when Stubbs did well in front of Votto? Dusty will.

Would be a shame to have .289 Heisey hitting 2nd and Cozy 7th....but I'm just being silly.

Dusty loves Stubbs. He will be back Friday night for sure. Move a little farther down the bench again Mr.. Heisey. When you get five hits in two starts off of a real pitcher other than some clown named Doc Halliday maybe you will deserve a fair shot. Stubbs looks like he is ready to break out at anytime, he only whiffed twice last night against the legendary Kyle Kendrick.

Man I hope this is the top 6 guys in the lineup come playoffs, with Hanigan and Cozart rounding it out. I know they only got 2 runs today, but look at the AB's for the first 3 batters. With the exception of BP, whom I have no doubt will be good in the leadoff spot, those are nice numbers.

Note Heisey: 2 for 4 with ZERO K's! So much better than Stubbs usual 0-5 or 1-5 with 3 K's. Is Stubbs D really worth that much? I don't think so.

Dusty convo with Chris, after the game. DB..'Chris, man you're hitting the ball well.' CH..'thankx, coach' DB...."sure wish we could play you more, but ya know we have Drew' CH...'uhhuh' DB.....And ya know he is fast,,,,,I mean zip....FAST' CH....' ya,but I'm almost as fast, and have been hitting better all year".........DB...."yes ya have, I've noticed,,,,,,but ya know.....Drew is FAST,,,man I love his speed. So with that said, we're gonna rest you for three to four days, because the dude is due to break outta his year and a half slump, at any time, and I sure want to be along for the ride. I know you understand, but man, the dude is FASTTTTT.'
