    Well if nothing else we'll have the worst DP combo in the history of the game.

    Yep, as soon as Narron makes out the card that includes Edwin and Aurillia, just what many have been asking for, the first post is about how bad the defense will be.

    What a shocker.

    I believe that slam was aimed at Clayton moreso than Aurilia.

    Usually you need at least one of your middle infielders to be able to move.

    Getting close I guess. But He is still choosing Clayton over Phillips now. Phillips should be at SS and Freel at 2B with Deno taking up RF.

    But he is getting close I guess.

    I love this lineup if Phillips is at SS. Also, look for Griffey to really break out with Dunn behind him again.

    I'm not disputing that. Tell that to everyone who thinks Narron is a moron for not playing Rich at SS.

    Yes, baby steps is the correct description.

    You can't expect Narron to make ALL the obvious line-up changes in a single month, can you?

    I know this sounds insane, but I should be able to expect him to make the change in a single day. But I believe only a doctor can fix his psychological miscues now.

    I'm with you guys who are saying Philips at SS now and we're where we need to be! I agree that the defense could be better...but it is no worse than with Clayton at SS. You have to play what you have...and the best the Reds have is Aurilia at 2B, Philips at SS, and Edwin at 3B. (Factoring offense in, of course).

    I disagree roby. Why not have Freel at 2B, Phillips at SS, EdE at 3B and have Aurilia/Hatteberg platoon vs lefties and righties at 1B respectively?

    Not bad, Phillips hasn't had a blow in a long time and Aurilia and Encarnacion in the line-up could be a good thing. It would not be a good thing to move Phillips at this stage of the season. If it happens it will be in the off-season and spring training. Valentin has awesome numbers against Maddux. Let's face it, Clayton is going to play.
