    That lineup doesn't look too bad...However, I'd switch Dunn up to 2, move everyone up and slide Lopez in front of LaRue. Oh well.

    I am feeling a Reds victory this afternoon.

    After painfully constructing the lineup to not stack consectutive LH hitters, today we have 4 LH in a row and then 3 RH's

    Another John McNamera moment brought to you by Dave Miley and Company.

    Miley is running out of excuses to not bat Dunn higher. It was because he doesn't want 3 lefties in a row. What's next?

    His knees are too high. Batting him early in the lineup screws up the strikezone for everybody else.

    Lopez is a switch hitter, so only 3 LH hitters in a row.

    Blame Kearns poor start for forcing the LH hitters in a row.

    I assume he'll be batting LH today right?

    Not if they bring in a LH pitcher. And it's that possibility that convinced Miley to shy away from consecutive LH hitters. So, for purposes of bringing in a LH specialist in the late innings, I'd consider Lopez a switch hitter.

    After all, there's nothing wrong with consecutive LH batters when a RH pitcher is on the mound.

    George lobbed him some softballs, much like Graves does. It was an obvious image repair effort.

    Danny just doesn't know when to shut the hell up. He comes across as such a freakin' whiner. And he made a reference to some of the people booing might be drinking, which reminded me of his comment a couple of years ago about the drunks from WV and KY.

    He's every bit as effective as a spokesman as he was Monday night.

    Danny, one doesn't have to be drunk to know a bad performance when they see one.

    I booed at my TV last night when Graves came in, and no, I wasn't drinking.
