    For what it's worth, Womack does have a higher career .OBP against Maddux than Freel.

    Womack - .293 OBP
    Freel - .278 OBP

    Freel has a higher SLG though.

    Womack - .308, 1 double in 39 at-bats
    Freel - .556, 2 doubles and a homer in 18 at-bats

    Javier Valentin has hit Greg Maddux very well in his career. In 10 at-bats, Javy is hitting .600/.636/1.800 with 4 homers and 5 RBI.

    Junior has had some success off Maddux too. He's hitting .450/.542/.800 with 2 homers and 4 RBI in 20 career at-bats.

    If the Reds get into a slugging match with the Cubs today I like our chances. After Lee there doesn't seem to be a lot of power in that Cubs lineup.

    Even though I would much rather see these games live on television, following the gametracker at the office makes the day go by so much faster. Especially now that ESPN has completely redesigned the gametracker to show pitches and animations of what happens on the field...

    Why Hatteberg hitting in front of Kearns?
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    I'm hoping Greg Maddux gets absolutely lit up today to the tune of at least 8 ER in less than 3IP.

    Hard for me to complain about that at this point. Hatteberg is getting on base nicely, and Kearns is in a nice spot to do some damage with guys on base. Reds have to have one of the top line-ups through seven games, I yield to Narron at this point.

    He's simply not mucking with what has been a winning formula so far. He's got some straight platoons going with set lineups and he's not going to change it unless the Reds start losing or some guys really start to fade. That's my opinion of what's going on at least.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
