    So, then a lineup would have -

    Votto-1b
    Phillips-2b
    Lopez-SS
    EdE-3B
    Dunn-LF
    Griffey-CF
    Kearns-RF
    LaRue-C
    That's way too much youth for Narron's tastes.

    Narron doesn't have a contract for next year.

    Just sayin'.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Sweet Lou has a great reputation for working with young guys too.....
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    ...but he may not have the patience or desire to baby-sit anymore after the Tampa Bay fiasco.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Cincinnati Reds Sent outright first baseman-outfielder Andy Abad to Louisville of the International League (AAA).

    This is good news. Abad gets a chance to stay in the system and available to be called up later.
