    Re: Good Lineup Finally Constructed By Dusty

    That's about as good as I've seen from Dusty, and breaks two of his more frustrating norms.

    - Catcher isn't batting 8th, or even 7th
    - LF is batting 2nd, not SS

    So moving Rocco up two spots makes it great?
    "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."

    Im not saying this is the best line up that can be constructed. Just the best line up Dusty has constructed.

    Doesn't count. To be eligble lineup have been used more than two innings.

    Frazier going 0/28 has forced Hannahan into the lineup.

    Incorrect. The results are irrelevant, it is only the lineup that matters.
