    The lineup thread

    Ok, we all post our preferred lineups all over the place. But usually the conversation tails in different directions, arguments arise about OBP and Ks. I want to see people's preferred lineup. No justification, no conditions (other than handedness), no trades. All you should have in your post is 8 words (or 16 if you want to do one vs. lefties). Despite your less literate fellow posters, please post ONLY the lineup, and not ongoing commentary... The "why" of your lineup can and is being debated in other threads...

    Mine:

    Lopez
    Hatteberg
    Dunn
    Griffey
    Kearns
    EE
    Phillips
    catcher (rotation)

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Sadly yo uprobably are correct. EE goes on the DL with a "mild" sprained ankle, and 2 1/2 weeks later we still haven't heard a word.

    Re: The lineup thread

    There is no way I put Dunn in the cleanup spot. He is not proving reliable in RBI situation/opportunities this year. But he is an OB machine.

    And as long as Freel is not playing everyday (and I don't think he should), then one really can't have a "set" lineup. So you need a "with Freel" and "without Freel" lineup.

    WITH...

    Freel
    Dunn
    Hat
    Jr
    EE
    Phillips
    Lopez
    Ross
    Kearns

    WITHOUT...

    Lopez
    Dunn
    Hat
    Jr
    EE
    Phillips
    Ross
    Kearns

    It's not Narron's decision as to when EE comes off the DL. And it seems his ankle was far worse then some seem to think....

    http://news.enquirer.com/apps/pbcs.d...606240398/1071

    Third baseman Edwin Encarnacion did not begin a rehab assignment at Louisville Thursday. He hit in a simulated session in Dayton off Paul Wilson and Grant Balfour instead.

    "He's still having trouble running the bases," Krivsky said. "He's getting stronger. Hopefully, a couple more days."

    Encarnacion has been on the DL since June 9 with a sprained left ankle.

    He was eligible to come off the DL Thursday.

    And as far as the Narron "ignoring" him, the kid had played in 53 games up till he injured his ankle.

    And nothing written about how the Reds are struggling without EE, even thought all year it has been the pen to blame, but if it were a few certain other players it would be played up to no end
    Go Gators!
