    Apparently this lineup is inked in stone.

    All I know is the sooner we get to the Cubs pen the better!

    No Wily Mo?

    Don't tell me he needs a day off.

    The guy could go two days without sleep and still perform.

    I was thinking the same thing. And maybe switch Jr. and Dunn. But Joe Randa is not a cleanup hitter. One big week does not a power hitter make.

    Just checked we might be lucky enough to catch Sheets on Sunday against the Brew Crew YeePee!

    The Reds could only manage 2 runs vs. Brian Moehler.

    Last week when the Reds faced Prior they were crushing the ball the first two innings. Hairston robbed Griffey and Casey of extra bases and a few other balls were line outs. Then he fell into a groove. It would be nice to get to him early tonite with 3-4 runs.

    In Prior's career, he's struggled against #6 hitters more than any other hitter. Should be interesting to see if Kearns goes long on him, especially with a runner on base.

    Hitters are the most successful against Prior over his career when the count is 0-0 rather than any other count, including 2-0, and 3-0.

    Hitters have a 1.016 career OPS against Prior when they make contact with an 0-0 pitch.

    The best count to swing against Prior is the first pitch.
