    He might be feasting down there too, less pressure, more fastballs.

    He's killing his PECOTA

    Dave Ross .313/.380/.695

    90% .258/.325/.464

    Ross is killing his projection, prior to the year BP had this to say about him
    Ross will have to step it up to guarantee himself a roster spot that comes with major league meal money. Hes got enough pop to do it, and can be useful if he can ever top .240.

    I don't think "Baseball Guy" has any idea what regression to the mean (...erm...) means. I think he bats Ross 7th or 8th because, as noted, that's where the catcher bats.

    Hell, at least it's not Miley batting Castro second because the shortstop always bats second. (Yes, Dave, when the shortstop's name is Barry Larkin, he does.)

    I can't believe EE's playing and Rich is sitting and what the heck is Jerry Narron thinking batting Royce in the 8 spot? What an idiot.

    Just so I don't get accused of being negative, I'm going to pray a little before this one:

    Please just play well this evening Reds. I actually dislike it when you play poorly. So play well. Go all out. Give not only effort but demonstrate skill when you are able. Swagger. Be confident. Realize that it's the bloodless Dodgers that you are facing and not the Cardinals or Brewers. And most of all, win. That's why I follow the game--to see a win. Not to be embarrassed. To see a win. I want the Dodgers to leave town with two losses, wondering if they are still in it. I want to win. Win.

    Win.

    That is all. I feel better. Now I'm ready to be sweet as sweet potato pie!!!!
