    3 Sean Casey, 1B
    4 Ken Griffey Jr., CF
    5 Austin Kearns,RF
    6 Adam Dunn,LF
    7 D'Angelo Jimenez,
    8 Javier Valentin, C
    9 Ramon Ortiz, P

    What do you think?
    Not too bad, but I'd go a little differently and tweak it a bit.

    1. Ryan Freel, 2B
    2. Felipe Lopez, SS
    3. Adam Dunn, LF
    4. Austin Kearns, RF
    5. Ken Griffey, CF
    6. Sean Casey, 1B
    7. Joe Randa, 3B
    8. Larue/Valentine, C
    '
    Reason I do this is it puts speed at the top of the linup. You put kearns in a run producing role, and between someone who gets on base in front of him, and someone who can protect him and possibly force AK to see better pitches, since Griffey's had a hot bat lately.

    And in the case of Dunn/Kearns/Griff getting a walk, you got Randa/Casey in there who can get a nice base hit and drive in some guys who walk before them.

    On Real Reds they said the line up is loaded with left handers because they have been able to hit Lieber. Right handed batters are hitting .179 against him.

    If Cruz started over Kearns, people would burn the city down.

    He needs a rehab assignment in AAA..but I think he needs to agree to it.

    If he comes back in EXACTLY 15 days..then I think Dan O is our Aurilia fan and not Miley.

    I'm all for veteran gamers, but if the youth is producing than that's who you put out there. (i.e. Felipe Lopez) If a veteran, higher played QB isn't doing it, then the young QB takes the job. That happens all the time, no different here.

    Not if it was a one-time event against a SP with a strong R/R split

    The Red's players still get to listen to fans booing the home team...this time in Philly
