    Not saying I agree with that rationale, but it's probably Miley's reasoning.

    Hey Miley here's an idea. Bat Dunn 2nd instead of wasting your high OBP hitter in the 5th spot.

    "I'm just trying to get something going."
    Might I suggest?

    I thought about making a HACKING MASS fantasy team(you try to choose the stiffest players i.e. those that will play badly yet will play often) that just had Reds players. I should've done it. Rich alone would've helped me win.

    If Austin Kearns gets traded (a guy with upside and who's very cheap right now), well, I just don't know.

    I have no idea what this hatefest is all about, but I can't imagine why DOB doesn't like him... unless it's because he's talked to the media a couple times, but I somehow think it's more than that, and it may be what led Austin to go AWOL for a couple days last year.

    He's done what he asked him to do, including the third base experience. Austin spent a whole lot of time on that during the offseason last year; Dan said the plan was a failure (never said why) but regardless, said he'd play him there a bit during ST, but he never did.

    And remember how long he was on the DL last year? Wasn't something said about that too? Like he was ok for quite awhile before they took him off and brought him back up. Or was it the lengthy rehab assignment; I can/'t remember exactly.

    What ever, I'd just like to throw my hands up in the air and not care... but I do care, and it's making me more sick to my stomach each and every day. I can only speculate how the players must feel.

    I doubt it RedLeg, Miley has shown he doesn't give a flying flip about previous stats with other lineups.

    Unless he just got to that chapter in "How to Manage"

    Boy, that's funny.

    How about in order to get 'something going' and produce some offense, you position your players in a lineup using statistics to back your moves and not age, height or years of major league service.

    Maybe he's trying to keep Casey from the DP record

    Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
    It's the freakiest show
    Take a look at the coach man
    Always picking the wrong guy
    Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
    He's in the best selling show

    Not that I rely on the GAB gun, but Claussen only throwing about 86-87 MPH tonight.

    (I hope not) but 2nd time through the lineup might be ugly again.

    On Sportsline game site, Ojeda shows up as a silhouette. Like the mystery man or something...creepy.
    Next Reds manager, second shooter. --Confirmed on Redszone.

    From game thread Beta

    "Hal said he was shocked Aurilia was in the lineup, much less than batting second. Hal says there is talk in the clubhouse that Miley is being told who to play and by more than just a few players"


    Wonderful!

    Dude, silhouettes are the worst. Our house was lousy with him; can't get rid of him.
