Same lineup we are used to by now..

Milton stinks and Hennessey stinks out of the rotation. Should be a barrel of fun.
Is it just me or do others feel winning the first game of the trip would be big. SF coming off a sweep and there starters have been pitching better

Cards down 5-2 right now too
Hennesey 4-2, 3.62 ERA as a starter.Originally Posted by Falls City Beer
OK.. fishing around a bit b4 the game and found out some milestones will be met 2nite.
In his 1st AB Bonds will Tie Ernie Banks for 38th all-time on the AB's List
If he gets 2 hits, he'll tie George Sisler for 42nd all-time in hits
Also will Tie and pass Al Kaline for 14th all-time in Games played during the series
And if Jr can get 7 RBI's he'll tie Goose Goslin for 24th all time
The Big one, if Jr hits 3 HR's in the series he will Tie Reggie Jackson for 10th all-time
4 Hrs for Dunn to reach 200 in his Career
Id forgotten about the milestone tracker lol...duh.. its cool though.. some stuff going on behind the scenes this week.
I like this line up and I hope Griff and Dunn make their milestones. Bonds can make the games or AB's, but no offense related ones.
has Dunn been dropped to #5 because he's not a contact hitter? or am i missing something there?

yes, this really is how we make our living.
Yeah. He's made all of 8 starts this season, got rocked in his last start, and pretty well stunk up the joint in 21 starts last season.Originally Posted by PuffyPig
K's too much to bat higher.. besides.. this lineup has worked... should leave it alone.
what does that mean.....Originally Posted by GridironGrace
Someone asked why dunn was batting #5, and if it was because he's not a contact hitter.Originally Posted by PuffyPig
Thats my reply.. He strikes out too much to bat higher IMO.. but 5th you can take full advantage of his power with runners on. Not to mention the protection he provides for Edwin, and Jr for that matter depending on the situation
His K's are pretty much irrelevant in determining where he hits.Originally Posted by GridironGrace
He hits 5th because Griffey has to hit 3rd (that's a separate debate), and Narron wants to split of the 2 LH hitters with EE. Otherwise, with our top OBA guy hitting 2nd (Hatteberg), you'd have 3 LH hitters in a row.
The answer seems to be Jerry likes Hattie at #2, and Junior has to bat #3.Originally Posted by Ravenlord
I cant say I disagree about the former, and with him starting to heat up, the latter. Edwin should bat 4th, so that leaves 5th. Not a demotion by any means, just a potent lineup.
