    Mmmmm... Casey's .406 Slg in the 4-hole sure looks good. Not that I think Randa is an ideal cleanup hitter, but his OPS is over 100 points higher than Casey's. At least Dunn is hitting 2nd, though.

    Why move Griffey out of the 4 spot? It's been working pretty well...

    Pena sits too....Even though he had a good day yesterday, it is the Rocket man

    Narron puts together lineups like he's trying to solve a Rubick's cube.

    He gets all the colors to align on one side of the puzzle, but then has them screwed up on another.

    Isn't this 7-3 instead of 7-2-05. Can you edit your thread redsfan?

    I would suggest that Casey can probably hit a tough pitcher like Clemens better than most of our hitters. Both Griffey and Casey can hit good pitcher's pitches better than most of the other Reds.

    And with the Astros having no lefty in the pen, we don't have to be worried about stacking our lefties. Even though RH hitters seem to fare better against Clemens than LH hitters.

    Hasn't Randa hit Clemens pretty well this year, though?

    Im not sure exactly how many hits he has, but I know that Randa has hit 2 of the only 5 homeruns Clemens has given up this year.

    Dunn, Griffey, and Randa have all hit Clemens well.

    To bad Freels on the DL, he is 5 for 13 against Clemens.

    According to ESPN:
    Randa vs Clemens (I assume for his career)
    38 AB
    11 hits
    1 3B
    3 HR
    1 BB
    10 K
    .289/.300/.579/.879

    Casey's OPS is .552 against Clemens, although thats in only 14 abs.

    I'd imagine Narron is loading up on the lefties due to the fact that the Astros now have no lefthanders in their bullpen after DFA'ing John Franco.

    1st pitch of the game is a strike.
