Re: Phils at Reds 4/7/08 Hello Castro!
SS bats 2nd -- who cares if he's among the worst hitters in MLB history? He should get more ABs than Phillips, Dunn, EE, and Keppinger. When the order turns around in the 9th and it's 9-1-2, I sure am glad that Castro will be at the plate to win the game for us.
Can a beat report please just ask Dusty why? You don't have to be snarky, just make the man defend the decision. My god.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
