    Thumping or Small Ball today? Thundering or Scrappy (aka Pesky in Milwaukee)?

    Aurilia's not going to be happy....honestly, I'd put him at 1st, he's done well and deserves to play in my opinion.

    I agree that Aurilia deserves to play. Hatteberg has been hitting better lately, but even so, Aurilia at first defensively and offensively is an upgrade.

    I had to do a double-take when I saw Ears was batting cleanup.

    He will be back in there at 1B tomorrow against the lefty. But I agree that Richie has played well, and I have come around regarding him this year. I think the big reason why I like Aurilia this year is that he seems to be less of a "me" player, and more of a "we" player. He seems to have accepted his role of utility infielder, sort of like a Dave Concepcion from 1987-88 with a lot more pop in his bat!


    The batting order for today is almost exactly how I would have it. I would switch the Cat in the Hatte and EZ-E, and otherwise leave it alone. My lineup (with today's personnel):

    Freel cf
    Lopez ss
    Dunn lf
    Kearns rf
    Encarnacion 3b
    Hatteberg 1b
    Phillips 2b
    LaRue c
    Claussen p
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    Aurilia hasn't hit righties well this year.

    ba-.185 / obp -.185 / slg -.259 / ops .444

    he has 25 ab's against RH and 27 against LH.

    Hatteberg OTOH, has a line against RH of ba -.290 / obp-.450 / slg-.484 / ops- .934 in 31 ab's.

    I don't see any reason for RA to be in there against RH pitching at this point. Although i will admit I like him better defensively at 1B than Hatteberg.

    Aurilia .269 .304 .500 .804

    Hatteberg .308 .460 .462 .922

    With Hatteberg getting on base at a .460 clip, it's puzzling why he gets grief around here, and it's even more puzzling why he gets that grief at Aurilia's expense.

    Hatteberg and Aurilia have both performed admirably and should both continue to be in the rotation. Hatteberg will sit tomorrow for Aurilia with Davis starting.

    To say Aurilia should be in there instead of Hatteberg is nothing short of bias. And the defense is not that much different. This is the best lineup the Reds can put out there right now, except I'd flip Hatteberg and EE in the order.

    I think they make a pretty good cheap 1B platoon. Although I'd like to see Hatteberg batting lower in the lineup and I'm not super happy with SH's defense thus far.

    Not a bad looking lineup at all. And with Claussen on the mound, I like our chances.

    'Tis a shame that Dunn can't head to first when Junior comes back. Honestly, that lineup would be killer.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    I'm not giving him grief, and I do like the lineup....I just think right now, somehow, someway, Rich deserves PT. He's done well.

    However, having so many guys who deserve PT with only 8 spots to fill isn't a bad problem to have...and it gives the team breathing room to make a trade down the line. Assuming our Redlegs stay in the hunt, I believe a trade will happen.
