    No Kearns, RA batting 4th, Dunn 5th

    Freel RF
    Lopez SS
    Griffey CF
    Aurilia 3B
    Dunn LF
    Hatteberg 1B
    Phillips 2B
    LaRue C
    Harang P


    Why does Narron tweak the lineup EVERY night! Dunn has 2 hits in the 2 spot, why move him?

    Why take Kearns out of the lineup to keep RA in? It makes no sense.

    Well...at least Freel's in there.

    I guess.

    Narron is a joke

    Dunn gets on base three times in the number two spot...and he drops him. And he continues to bat Aurilia and his .599 OPS vs RHP in the cleanup spot. Narron is one of the five worst managers in baseball.

    Extending his contract is horrible news for the Reds young players.

    Did you think Aurilia would be out of the lineup on the day Narron is celebrating his extension?

    Narron's fascination with RA in the 4 spot is perhaps the only thing where I can sit here and say "what the heck are you possibly thinking?"
    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.

    I don't get it either.

    Maybe Aurilia has made threats

    They have won more games with RA in the 4 hole than anybody else, which is still odd....but I guess when you have a winning record, and he's been in the 4 hole more than anybody else this sesason, that stat would make sense...

    We can look forward to 3 more years of these crappy lineups...

    I hate to do it but I agree with this entire post. I try not to be all that negative a person but Narron just kills me.

    Hardly.

    Confusing, maybe

    He may not be one of the five worst but I can't imagine there are too many managers that would continue to plug RA in the 4 hole night after night.

    Every day RA bats 4th makes me think it is less and less likely EE will have his starting job back on Friday.

    And that makes me twice as mad then losing to the Royals.

    I think EE will get his job back. RA will still hit 4th though while playing 1B.

    Eh, I liked last night's better. Seemed like Jerry was onto something with Dunn at #2, why not give it another shot?

    And as always, Aurilia at clean up continues to baffle me. Hell, Aurilia being in the lineup at all baffles me.

    EE will probably play 3-4 games a week and Rich will get the rest of the starts at 3B. Narron will come up with a lame excuse to justify it - something like he doesn't want EE playing everyday with a bad ankle.

    The platoon thing will probably happen again.

    EE needs to play when he gets back.
