    Lineups?

    Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Casey and Griffey still ahead of Dunn.

    Lopez goes 2-3 with a homer yesterday..and is on the bench today.

    Makes a lot of sense to my managerial mind..Griffey bats 2nd batting .200 and Ks more than my grandma. I like Miley but dag nab it, put his butt on the bench with jimenez so they can play with each other. I would start Cruz over Griff. don't get me wrong, he WAS a great player but you don't win by playing a guy that can't do it anymore and still don't know how to run out a "so called HR" that bounces off the fence!

    I didn't realize it but Miley must subscribe to KRISP and understand that KRISPY hitters make good cleanup and 5 holers. Randa has cooled off but Miley keeping him in 4 hole on strength of his low strikeouts (for this team) and .308 RISP.

    Miley has the tough job of keeping Casey and Jr happy and also trying to get them rolling. If he drops them to the 5 and 6 hole or the 6 and 7 hole then he is running a risk of hurting their confidence and get them thinking even more. Then again keeping them so high in the order you run the risk of hurting your team. While I dont think Dunn should bat 5 I dont think he should bat 2 either. I would probably go: Freel, Casey, Dunn, Kearns, Jr., Randa, Aurillia, LaRue (with todays players). But normally I would put Pena in the 4 spot instead of Kearns and Lopez instead of Aurillia.

    I'm much more interested in the team winning than I am in trying to keep Griffey and Casey "happy."

    My thoughts exactly.

    Drop them down. If they don't like, oh well. Start hitting is all I can tell you.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Delgado takes strike 3.

    Good inning from Claussen.

    Last year Casey was an RBI machine early out of the 5 spot (and the 6 spot). Then they moved him up.
    Griffey hit 5th, 6th or cleanup most of the time.

    Randa has never been a cleanup hitter.

    I don't see why they would mind a switch. I think Miley has that "player sensitivity" stuff in his head and that's what's keeping him back (aside from the fact he's not very bright).

    With all do respect part of the reason you feel that way is because you are not the manager of the team and do not have to deal with them every day. There is more to being a manager then making out a lineup card. I do not know if a calculator will tell you that, but any actually manger will.
