    :miley: "That darn Felipe Lopez is still hitting. I can't wait for Rich's hammy to heal so I can get him back in at short and bench Felipe. I can't stand young shortstops with good range and a good bat."

    I believe Felipe has now doubled in 5 consecutive games. I was opposed to him leading off..but he's changed my mine. That OBP is up around .400 now.

    Every double from FeLo makes Dan O'Brien mad enough to speak in clear and concise sentences.

    Felipe has doubled in 5 games in a row, his OPS entering today's game was 964, and his OBP was 379. Just shows how utterly stupid even the thought of playing Aurilia over him was.

    Though his BB per plate appearance are down (likely due to his sporadic early usage), I've always believed that he will take enough pitches, draw enough walks and hit with a high enough average (from both sides of the plate) to merit hitting in the #1-2 slot. A likely .300+ hitter whose BB totals and EBH power will keep him near 375-400OBP range with near 500 Slg%. An added bonus, is that as he settles into a defined position and role, he might start to develop his running game too, for some speed adjusted OPS benefits, as he is the type of guy who can probably swipe 20-25 at a 75% clip IMHO.

    As a "FeLo is the future" guy from the day he arrived, I'm thrilled to see him weather the storms of struggles, injury, attitude, misusage and emerge from it as a guy who is starting to put it all together. Lark knew this kid had the tools to be the next stellar Cincy SS, and it's a huge boost to this talent desperate franchise to have a guy like Felipe growing into the role.
