    Yeah because Dunn can't hit lefties.

    We'll see him in the 2nd game, with Olmedo and EE protecting him

    Holy Moses.

    I have no other words for this manager.

    He's dead to me.

    Doesn't make a lot of sense. You'd think KG would be the guy getting the rest today in one of the games today, unless they plan to play WMP in center in second game, which I doubt, or plan to play Romano in both games which would just be stupid.

    I really think this organization wants Dunn to fail. They hit him down in the order, sit him during hot streaks and bench him vs homerun prone pitchers.

    I loathe this organization.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    I don't think they want him to fail. I just think they're stupid.

    TMBS, I don't really have a problem with giving the guy a day off during a double header. he has played more games than any other Red.

    My guess is that KG gets tomorrow off and EE get into the second game today.

    i honestly believe this is Dan O'Brien trying to keep Dunn's arb figures down. i imagine Dunn hitting second was Narron's idea and DanO probably freaked out about it thinking, "he's already a leader in runs scored in the back of the lineup, i can't afford to allow him to score more runs."

    If Dunn could get a hit off Pettitte, then he should be able to get some hits off Rodriguez.

    Dunn will probably play in game 2...Griffey probably won't.

    Game 2 lineup (jokingly, hopefully...)

    Lopez SS
    Aurilia 2B
    Cruz RF
    Romano CF
    Dunn LF
    Valentin 1B
    Larue C
    Encarnacion 3B
    Ortiz P


    Maybe not in that order...

    In my opinion, Dunn doesn't need another day off. Miley gave him a day off on June 17 vs the Braves, plus the Reds had offdays on June 23 and 27th. Dunn himself said he doesn't need a lot of offdays.

    i honestly believe this is Dan O'Brien trying to keep Dunn's arb figures down
    It wouldn't surprise me.
