Ponson didn't pitch against the Reds Friday night. The Cubs maybe?
Is it Sunday?
Let's see...Ross and Griffey are hot right now, so let's bench them. Makes sense to me. Replace them with Larue (.171) and Freel (.269) just to give Aaron Harang a challenge. It's only the Cardinals and a chance to go into a tie with them for first place. Big Deal!
Sometimes I wonder about Narron's sanity.

that batting order is awful. i understand giving griffey a day off but putting hatteberg and RA in the 3 / 4 spots is crazy.
there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.
Ricky henderson has a higher OBP than C. patterson and he's retired. C. Trent 6-14-2008

Flip Hatteberg and Aurilia with Dunn and Kearns and it looks better.Originally Posted by RBA
Yet, who am I to question this team's decisions right now?
Great lineup. More proof Narron is an idiot.
There is a manager out there who can get more out of this team right now? Narron and the Reds are a perfect fit right now.Originally Posted by fielder's choice
Let's sit someone who hit 2 HR's Monday and reached base 5 times yesterday. Great idea. Oh, and stick our worst hitter in the cleanup spot.Originally Posted by SeeinRed

When you are on a hot streak you don't change anything, especially taking out the hottest player in baseball, Griffey, and another hot one, Ross. Ridiculous! In Vegas, when the roulette wheel has spit out 6 blacks in a row, do you bet on red the next spin? No way. You never bet against streaks. I still think they can win tonight, but you have try to ride out this streak as long as possible. Long win streaks don't come around very often and Narron seems content with 6 in a row. I want 10+. Why not?

Yeah, the Reds are 10 games over .500 despite the fact that their manager is a complete idiot. It doesn't work that way.Originally Posted by fielder's choice
Rich Aurillia is the worst hitter on the team? Where does that come from? The stats sure don't support that one.
