    I'd bat Wright second. Higher OBP. Plus, he has 10 steals with only one caught this season.

    BP is doing fine at cleanup. And he hits into too many double plays when he bats second for some reason.

    Mes is ready brother.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    That's what I'm seeing everywhere just about. I was under the impression that once it hit the ground it was dead. I didn't think you could hit a bounced ball. But apparently you can. (that's what started me questioning a non swing).

    Err, anyone else see Phillips make Mes high-five him at least 4-5 times in the dugout?

    Dusty would hit Phillips second. He did so when Ludwick was playing. He'd do so with Wright.

    So when the Reds get David Wright, you and Dusty will have to argue it out.

    0-5. Not exactly a stellar start for Derrick.

    Logan warming.

    I think Vlad Guerrero once hit a bounced ball for a home run. As usual I reserve the right to be mistaken though.
