    Probably the most common thread topic... Lineup construction... And probably the least important issue with the team.

    I still don't understand the rationale behind Phillips splitting Bruce and Votto. Phillips is a low OBP hitter without true home run pop.

    Well, I do think it is important. But not multiple threads important -- at least when they aren't discussing anything new.

    This lineup could defeat the Death Star. What is Dusty thinking.

    He doesn't even need the rest of the lineup, those 4 players will win every game and lead the universe in scoring, no one could stop them if they were arranged in this mystical fashion.

    If Dusty makes a bold move that is not common in the baseball world and someone like Votto goes into a slump and the move doesn't work, he probably loses his job.

    So I ask you this, why would he make such a high risk/low reward maneuver in terms of his coaching career?

    If he stays with the status quo and other guys not named these 4 don't perform he can fall back on the play of his players.

    Great paraphrasing of the conversation to this point. Or not.

    Seriously? You think Dusty is a Votto slump away from being fired? Wow.

    I wouldn't hold my breath for this lineup change to happen.

    We can talk and analyze and argue and rant and bloviate till the cows come home but it just ain't gonna happen.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Has anyone else noticed that Cozart's hitting stats makes him a subpar choice for hitting 2nd in front of Votto?

    This might sound a little "out there", but it might be time to move him down in the order and try to find a batter with higher OBP to hit in front of Votto and the boys.
