    Game thread 9-1

    All right. The Reds are undefeated in at least 3 tries when I have started a game thread. I figure with Roy Harvey Oswalt going tonight, the Reds need all the mojo they can get.

    It's honorable Chip. I'm banking on Houston double-digits and a Reds goose-egg myself. This team's going got going.

    Appearently Kearns is batting 2nd:

    Gallows humor

    HOUSTON -- Give the Reds credit for at least having a sense of humor about their impending matchup with Roy Oswalt, who has won more games against them without a loss (14) than any other big-league pitcher ever against one opponent.

    When the beat writers walked into Jerry Narron's office this afternoon, he feigned surprise that we bothered to show up, having written the story so many times already.

    "I figured you were going to Atlanta tonight, knowing who was pitching," said Narron. "I appreciate y’all coming."

    Hey, might as well.

    The one new wrinkle in the lineup is Austin Kearns batting second for the first time in his big-league career.

    "Oswalt’s pitching, so I don’t think it’s a matchup thing," said Kearns.

    In fact, his .222 average (6-for-27) against the right-hander is one of the better numbers among Reds regulars.

    Re: Game thread 9-1

    Wasn't there a brief period where Narron consistently had only two basic lineups, one to oppose righthanded starters and one to oppose lefthanded starters, and he just made minor tweaks game to game depending on injuries, scheduled days off, etc? Booneism must set in after two months on the job.

    Tonight's game will be just one more example of why George Kenneth Griffey, Jr. should wear a REDS hat for the rest of his career and a REDS hat into the Hall of Fame.
    Rob Neyer: "Any writer who says he'd be a better manager than the worst manager is either 1) lying (i.e. 'using poetic license') or 2) patently delusional. Which isn't to say managers don't do stupid things that you or I wouldn't."

    Kearns, since Aug 15 (13 games):

    .304/.431/.630, 4 HR, 14 RBI


    I like him better batting 4th or 5th, but whatever, as long as he's getting plenty of PT.
