    But, I would guess, some of his walks are pushing others into scoring position (or keeping them there without giving up an out), hence some of the RBI goodness for EE and Phillips...

    He might have a nice OBP but for a number 5 hitter he's no Dunn.
    SH has 38 ab's againt RH, RA 33, but points well taken. Hatteberg should bat no higher than 7th IMO.

    Did anyone notice that Jose Vidro (He went 3-for-5 on Tuesday to raise his season average to .377. He leads the team in RBIs, with 15) isn't playing today? That's really good for us.

    As well as Valentin's swinging the bat against RHP (.324/.359/.486) and since there are 3 C's on the roster, I wouldn't mind seeing him at 1B on a day like today, if he's not going to start at C.

    I don't often type this, but I would be stunned if the Reds lost today's game.

    Aurilia isn't exactly Ryan Freel out there. He might be able to beat Mr. Hat in a footrace but it wouldn't be by a lot.

    Yeah, you're right - I'd rather have Hatteberg out there versus a righthander. My problem is with where he is batting. People keep throwing out his awesome OBP, so I was just pointing out its hollow because of his statuesqueness (not even sure thats a word) and the fact that dude has been batting fifth against righties all year yet only has 4 RBI and 7 runs scored. Numbers much worse than they should be based on his OBP and his BA.

    Hatteberg should be batting 7th, thats all I'm saying.

    Think it may be time to give Dunn a day off soon. He's really struggling recently.

    Maybe Ramon will groove a couple for him.

    These kind of games always scare me, when we face a former Reds pitcher who was awful in a Reds uniform.
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    Even Bill Bangert is mocking Ramon del Jamon.

    I'd like to see EdE and Hatteberg swap spots in the batting order, but other than that I cannot complain.

    Daryle Ward in for Jose Guillen in RF and Marlon Anderson in for Jose Vidro at 2B. The Nationals' offense will take a hit.
