Re: 5/15/07 Reds vs. Padres
Who else would you have batting clean up? Dunn? Hamilton? Me too, but they are also lefties and you all know what Narron thinks of batting lefties back-to-back. So for the available righties remaining, it's between Conine, Phillips, Moeller, or Gonzalez. Seeing how Moeller and Gonzalez can't hit, and Phillips is better served in the top of the order thanks to his speed and 17 game hitting streak, Conine is okay. You want a clean up hitter? Then tell Krivsky to get one, because we don't have one. At least Narron is trying to mix it up instead of letting the same miserable hitless lineup go out there every time. He's trying to win.
