    What's wrong with a challenge for the kid?

    Of course on a macro level Carpenter's got righties figured out--yes. But when a pitcher doesn't know a hitter's tendencies, I still believe, flaky as it may seem, that on a micro level sometimes hitters can have an edge. Sure it's a long shot, the stats say don't do it, but occasionally bucking trends lends a dynamism to a lineup that might otherwise not be there. I wouldn't recommend this lineup frequently with a guy like Carpenter on the mound, but on occasion quirks have been known to pay off.

    For those that still can't get into chat, I set up an alternate chat site. Boss is deligently working to correct the RZ chat software which is corrupted.

    Until then, we can use this as a backup

    http://www.dunnisking.bravehost.com/

    Just click on "live chat" on the righthand side, enter a username, you don't need to enter anything in profile, and you should get in.

    It's a simple, basic chat.

    Yes, it goes back yo what you were saying the other day. It goes beyond one game. Even if EE goes 0-4 tonight, it will be good for him (which inturn will be better for the Reds) in the long run.

    Don't think I'd do that. If Narron was determined to put a RH bat there I'd suggest Kearns.

    Today would also be a good day for Harang to regain his 2005 form.

    Maybe this is Part II of EE's punishment.

    Please EE would hit 4th everyday if he was offered.

    Kid is probably peeing his pants right now. Hitting clean up against the defending Cy Young Award winner at a brand new stadium.

    If this is a punishment I want some.

    Try chat again. Boss told me the problem should be fixed.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    He said the problem is with those with access to ORG. Somehow you all lost access when he reinstalled chat. I'll shoot him another PM and let him know you are still having trouble.

    Sorry guys.
