Re: 5-13-07 Reds vs Dodgers - JN one ups himself
Sending down EE is bad enough, but combining that with using Castro to give guys days off and this line-up is starting to look bad.
Obviously Freel would have been getting Castro's starts, but to me that is the reason why EE should be up right now. This team without EE has zero depth and cannot afford to bench regulars since Castro seems to find ways to work himself in the line-up.
Castro getting 2 starts in any series, let alone an entire season, makes it very difficult for me to believe that this team actually expects to contend.
I'm not one to complain about line-ups, but the last couple of days have made things very frustrating. A team that needs to start reeling off wins with contention getting further away starts Juan Castro over Adam Dunn.
Giving Castro any kind of regular at-bats guarantees that this season is over IMO.
