Good grief! Conine cleanup (with Edwin in the lineup)?
Hopper - .311 .386
Phillips - .321 .353
Griffey - .384 .369
Conine - .352 .352
Dunn - .360 .317
EdE - .346 .333
Gonzo - .302 .282
Hamilton - .347 .327
Ross - .249 .219
Makes you wonder why Hamilton hits behind Gonzalez and Ross is playing over Valentin (.500 avg. .571 OBP).
Then again we have R-R-L-R-L-R-R-L-R. Oops, Jerry forgot to position Gonzo and Hamilton right. Or maybe hit Hamilton leadoff. Nah, you still get twi right handed hitters together. Maybe he'll change it before game time? No doubt we need another outfielder. Why do we have three catchers again? Because the Twins do? :bang:
You gotta remember though, Hamilton sucks so bad as a hitter that Castro is a viable option for him, so, I guess 8th is about right...
...insert tone as appropriate.
What little bit of seriousness I had left to take of Jerry Narron has all been lost after Wednesday.
I wonder how the clubhouse has reacted what he did on Wednesday. He may have finally totally lost them by now.
I hope Real Reds shows the Griffey celebrations on the field before the game.
Would be kind of cool to let Jr start in center tonight...
Makes you wonder why ...and Ross is playing over Valentin (.500 avg. .571 OBP).
Makes me wonder why posters complain without doing even basic research.
Sure Valentine has a .500 OBA against LH pitchers this year.....in 6 ABs.
You only have to watch Valentin hit against one LH pitcher to know you never want to see it again
Over the last 3 years, his .450 OPS gives a better indication of his ability to hit LH pitching
Getting warmed up :)
I don't mind Hopper in the leadoff spot vs. LHP, but I would prefer the following order:
when will they put Narron out of our misery? :rant2:
