    I know he's easing him back in, but I'm surprised that Ludwick is sitting against a lefty.
    "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."

    Surprised not to see Todd in the two hole, especially after the game he had in Chicago.

    Yes, lineup construction is overrated. However I would like to hear Dusty's logic in how me makes up the lineup.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    I usually can figure out the reasoning for these batting orders, or so I think.

    This one has me stumped. Maybe trying to get Heisey going. The two spot seems to be the "get guys going" spot on the Reds.

    I would have left Frazier second until Ludwick moves back to fourth, Phillips second.

    Would've liked to see Ludwick play too.
    He has no hits, but has hit the ball hard. (It was so sad to see him robbed of what should've been a 2 run single last night)

    I think at this point in the season, it's more important to try to get Ludwick going than to try to get Heisey going.

    Would've kept Frasier #2 while it was working too.

    Oh well, Dusty has been spinning the magic lately. Hopefully another win
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    What's up with the odd obsession on here that Frazier has to hit second? He's 5/27 (.185) with a .683 OPS in the 2 hole. Better than he has been lately? Sure. Has to keep batting 2nd? No way.

    Choo gets ob. Heisey bunts. Two chances to score. The rest of the lineup makes sense.

    I think you answered yourself. It's a "keep 'em guessing" line up.

    Looks to me more like people are saying "Seems like an odd time to move him" or "he's the best of bad options" than an obsession.

    How about a date in the thread title. Makes it easier to archive/follow up.

    Thought I had included that, but apparently not. I fixed it.

    Gorzelanny is a lefty with a lifetime 4.24 ERA who was with the Pirates, Cubs, Nats, and now the Brewers. Choo grounds up the middle, easily thrown out at first.
