    7/30 Game Thread - REDS @ BREWERS (Again No EE!)

    The lack of playing time for EE is getting to the point of ridiculousness.

    Your lineups:

    1) Freel - RF
    2) Dunn - LF
    3) Griffey - CF
    4) Aurilia - 3B
    5) Hatteberg - 1B
    6) Phillips - 2B
    7) Castro - SS
    8) LaRue - C
    9) Harang - P

    1) Clark - CF
    2) Graffanino - 2B
    3) Fielder - 1B
    4) Mench - LF
    5) Jenkins - RF
    6) Bell - 3B
    7) Hall - SS
    8) Rivera - C
    9) Sheets - P

    Well, it is the final chance to showcase Rich...

    Wishful thinking. I'd much rather give up a little range and have Rich at SS and EE at 3B. How much of a defensive downgrade could Rich be at SS compared to Clayotn? And, if you have the lead, drop Castro in there the last few frames if you want.

    I don't buy into this damaging EE's "confidence" if he doesn't play theory. Baseball is just as much mental as it is physical, and if EE's mental game is so fragile that he's losing confidence then he'll probably never be a good major league player. If he's strong mentally, he sucks it up, works hard, stays positive, and gets the job done when he does get chances. If he does just that, his time will eventually come.

    10-5 since the break, damn shame that all folks worry about is EE getting at bats.

    Enough that somehow it hasn't crossed the guys in the dugouts minds.

    I'm just hoping that the silver lining in Royce's less than stellar defensive play is that it ensures that he won't be back next year.

    Hopefully, there wasn't much chance of that to begin with, but you never know...

    I more heartened by Clayton's absence than disturbed by EdE's absence. I agree though that Encarnacion should play with the Reds or with Louisville, but not ride the pine with either.

    West, I think you're naive if you think they haven't considered it. While Narron doesn't get much credit for being bright, I think he can ponder the idea of Rich at SS.

    Hopefully Bill Hall gets stomach cramps in about 5 minutes and has to leave the game.

    This ballgame is not starting out well. Sheets lights out and Harang in trouble early.

    This lineup will not produce any runs. Your basically giving them the outs 6-9.

    I think the Brewers have done a better job with their trades so far than any other team in baseball. With Sheets and Ohka coming back this team will be in 2nd place by seasons end.

    With this long inning, I don't see Aaron going too much further than the 6th. (I hope I am wrong )
