    LaRue seems OK to me to bat 2nd today. No one else in the lineup I would prefer batting 2nd. I'll put my stamp of approval on this lineup, for today anyway.

    If they're trying to win, they should have Aurillia in instead of Olmedo.

    But I guess the FO still thinks Olmedo might be able to be something. IMO, he's a marginal utility guy at best. I guess it's not that bad to give him an occasional start, but it's hard for me to justify "developing" him, because I think he won't amount to anything (other than a average glove guy that can't hit).

    I can see that but I certainly wouldn't want his .317 OBP hitting 2nd.

    Looks like the Cubs made a little move today: Remlinger traded to the BoSox for Astacio.

    I still think the Reds will attain the .500 mark.

    50 games left. Reds have to go 31-19 to get to .500 .

    With those stats against Prior I don't have a problem with a little expierment of LaRue hitting 2nd in the lineup.

    Not unreasonable, the way they have been playing of late.

    Reds are going to get beat today. The big question:

    Can Adam Dunn hit 17 Homeruns in 50 remaining games?

    This has got to be the highest old Larue has hit in a game since his little league days.
