    Very interesting. Olemdo is on fire, fast, and scrappy while Rich is tepid, slow, and old. Which do you play in the get away game? Rich? The more I see of Narron, the better I like him (I like the way he's handlng the pitching in conjunction with Ruhle), but that's just insane. Play Rey til he quits hitting and doing well. Please.

    Of course, continuing bat Randa fifth is also kind of screwy and we've beaten Dunn's place in the order to death.

    I just wonder what does Rich have over these guys? It has to be something...

    Perhaps it's the 3 hits he had on Friday, including the game winner?

    The Reds have decided that to counteract the high K rate of the power guys that they must balance it out with contact hitters and "good 2 strike hitters" Problem is they give more ab's to them as opposed to breaking it up.

    Good example of what they want in the number two slot (Hi Adam Dunn) is for a guy to take a few pitches if Lopez is on first, but they also want a guy to put a play on.

    Hence I'm a low OB Guy but good 2 strike hitter in the number 2 slot evry day.

    And continue to allow him to make a case against being sent down to AAA when Freel comes back?

    If he gets limited playing time, he can be sent down because he needs to "work on things"

    OK, I'll play...

    Then why didn't he start him last night?

    The Reds have a chance to sweep a team on the road today. Last time that happened was May 31-June 2, 2004, at Florida.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    I have a solution to the "should-Aurilia-or-Olmedo-play?" problem. How about both? Lopez hasn't had an off-day in a while, I don't think. How about giving him a day off... even with the all-star break ahead, I mean he IS going to Detroit after all. Why not give him the last day off before that, and play Olmedo at short and The Greatest Player Ever at 2nd for today?

    No reason to sit Lopez right now since he will get enough rest over the break.

    It's bad enough we have to start one of them but I really don't want to work the line-up around to fit both of them in.

    I will never see Olmedo as a regualr. Besides his nice start I don't see him having a future starting even though I think he will make a nice CAstro type reserve.

    He was due for a rest. If you are going to rest him, better against a tough righty like Webb, than a so-so LH releiver like Goosling (sp?). Assuming you were ever going to start Olemedo over Auriila, Saturday night's matchup was the time to do it.
