Re: best current Reds lineup
Great thread, oldredsfan! While all posts here make great points, I personally like giving Robinson a chance. Yes, he's been in the minors for years, and only posts a .267 avg there, his speed is something to be reckoned with. This guy is FAST fast. Not to mention, he was named to the Minor League Rawlings Gold Glove award team (which obviously is given to the best defensive players in the minors).
Choo at first to lead off the game, if we're playing a top notch pitcher and feel the need to play small ball and scrape out a run . . . Robinson will beat out that bunt for a single more than a handful of times, putting two on for Votto. And if he doesn't, Votto has Choo on 2nd w/a base open, and BP smiling in the on deck circle (obviously this is considering our injuries). Good luck w/that National League.
