Re: My Lineup VS. Dusty Lineup - RESULTS
Problem is, this lineup - or any "theoretical lineup" you put out there can't be projected over 162 games.
If you could put Patterson 300 PA's, Hopper 150 PA's, Freel 150 PA's at #1 then you're talking - but then what Combination of Keppinger (200 PA's in the 2 hole, 200 at ?!?!) AGon (is he REALLY going to bat 2nd?!?!?), are you looking at.
Then you've got the Platoon at 1B.
Then you've got the Platoon at Catcher.
Yeah, we ALL would love Junior to move out of the 3 hole. I think it will happen. In 2009, when he's no longer on the team. Unfortunately looks like Dusty would rather put BP there instead of Dunn, which is also WAY more likely if Dunn isn't on the team.
Quit beating yourself up, might as well just Grin and Bear it with Dusty and the Lineups!
I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008
Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009
