    Line-up without Freel

    I think it is safe to say when Griffey comes back on Friday that we will see Freel less. I still think he will play much but I think it becomes very possible that Phillips becomes the regular at 2nd base. Also I think Freel is a guy who may be dealt for pitching. So when Freel is not playing, or if he is traded how do you fill out the line-up? Does FeLo leadoff? If so, who moves to the two spot?

    Phillips is at second base for a long long time.

    Lopez should lead off..he's the best choice, I don't like him in that spot but he's better then Phillips for it.

    He should have stretched it out for an inside the park homerun.

    So if you move Lopez to leadoff, who hits 2? Edwin? Or maybe even Phillips?

    Re: Line-up without Freel

    Freel means so much to this offense I can't bear the thought of leaving him out. I would much rather suffer through a week of adjustment with Dunn at first than remove one of our most potent offensive weapons.

    Thus:

    Freel LF
    Lopez SS
    Dunn 1B
    Griffey CF
    Kearns RF
    Encarnacion 3B
    Phillips 2B
    LaRue C
    Starter (feat. the All-Star Gas Can Crew) P

    Sucks because they have some magic going, but it's going to have to change. How about Dunn. LOL - just kidding

    Dunn to 1st would solve it easily.

    Re: Line-up without Freel

    I'd like to see Dunn at 1st and Freel in LF, but with the moves Kriv's made in the past 2 weeks, things don't look good for Ryan hanging around much longer.

    I'd bet cash money (though not much) that he's being shopped.

    Re: Line-up without Freel

    I think Freel is being shopped as well, but I dont think there are many on this team that Krivsky is not at least testing the waters on. Freel, Kearns, LaRue are all guys I could see getting moved. Well not LaRue until he plays a little bit and gets his value back up, but I think this team will get shook up everytime Krivsky thinks he has a chance to improve this team. And one if not more of those guys are going to get moved for more pitching.

    I think its darn near a crime if Dunn doesnt move to first to keep freel in the lineup.

    Everyone knows Dunn should move to first and that it would help this team out so much, but I just dont know if it will happen. I dont know why Dunn is so reluctant to make the move.

    line-up without Freel shouldn't be a Reds line-up unless Freel is hurt or sent packing
