    Game Thread - Metskis vs. Redlegs 7/19/06

    Per Marc's blog -
    Freel back in there

    As expected, Ryan Freel is starting in right field and leading off tonight, with Denorfia getting a day off. And, for those who seem increasingly obsessed with the third base situation, Rich Aurilia is starting there again. Keep in mind that he's riding an 11-game hitting streak.

    For the record, a sweat-soaked Edwin Encarnacion just wrapped up a session of early work with Bucky Dent at third base.
    We know Freel's leading off and Aurilia's hitting 4th. I'm heading down tonight with my two boys...anyone else?

    If not, have a good game thread everybody.

    Sure seems like they are showcasing Aurilia as a third baseman. Wonder if they are working on a trade.... Maybe its just wishful thinking.

    Hey, if the playing time for Aurilia results in the hitting streak Richus has put together *and* a Randa-like trade for some decent young pitching, I don't mind if Encarnacion has to sit for a bit now.

    If Aurilia was hitting like crap... that's when I would be mad.

    Griffey's BA is lower than Dunn's.

    I hope this is turning into a showcase for LaRue too. But he's got to get that .194 average up.

    IF Aurilia is dealt, okay. But IF he stays put? This dealie where EE now plays only against lefties blows.

    I'm to the point where I think they almost *have* to be showcasing Aurilia. There just can be no other explanation. EE's defense isn't *that* bad, particularly when you consider who is replacing him there.

    The man IS on an 11 game hitting streak -- a little perspective here? It's not like they're benching EE for Anderson Machado or something.

    you can think of it this way too...

    3B who has exactly average range gets 350 Total Chances
    Aurilia we'll say has that exact average range (even though i think he doesn't), and with a 951 FP, that's roughly 332 outs.

    Encarnacion we'll say has better range than average by we'll say 15%. so instead of 350 Total Chances, the number becomes 402 because of EdE's range. at his current .897 FP, that's roughly 361 outs.

    an over simplification, but useful none-the-less.

    If Phillips keeps slumping, rest him a few games, play RA at second, EE at third.
