    Freel 2-13 against Peavy with 7 k's and 0 walks. Good time to get a bit of rest on those legs.

    IIRC, Freel was AWFUL against Peavy last time up.

    This might not work, but I'll give Narron some credit for mixing it up. The regulars weren't hitting much and LH hit Peavy a bit better.

    Heck, if it were me, I might have had Wise leading off or something.

    The bellyaching about the lineup should guarantee a good offensive night.

    To be clear, I am not criticizing it, since we are into the ether with this team in a strange season, it might just work. Whatever they did last time against Peavy sure didn't.

    Ride your horses too hard and sometimes you die, ask Gene Mauch and Leo Durocher about that.

    No, what he is saying is all you need is a stat sheet to do the same job as Narron. A stat sheet and an undying love for Ryan Franklin.

    Freel is slumping right now. In the month of September - 10 games - his numbers read:
    Code:
    AB R h D T hr bi bb k sb cs obp ops ba
    30 5 7 0 0 1 1 4 8 4 0 .324 .333 .657 .233
    Time for a rest. He's far from a great leadoff hitter right now.

    And as for a toe keeping him out of a game...if you've ever dislocated a toe, it's not anything an outfielder can play with. Oh, that was last night's game thread.

    I do not like Hattberg in the #2 slot. It's all wrong for him. Hatteberg's not so secret weakness (it's right there in "Moneyball" for anyone to read) is that there's a lot of pitches and areas in the strikezone he can't handle. I don't know if pitchers perhaps let up a bit when he's lower in the lineup and the guy on deck isn't so scary or if they try to get him to chase more junk (which is like manna from Heaven for Hatteberg because it means he can work his way into a hitter's count) or if they just go after #2 hitters more directly. It's probably a combination of all that plus some other stuff and the result is he's far less effective at #2.
    Friends don't let friends fWAR.

    Coddle thy pitchers.

    And yet the rest of the league has smacked it around relatively well on Jake this year. Sounds like the Reds are OVERDUE!

    Freddy Garcia just had his no-hitter broken up with two outs in the 8th inning by Adam freakin' Kennedy.

    Sure would be nice to see Jr. playing in a meaningful game. Any word on his boo-boo?
    Goodbye Homer!

    In other news, Griffey took batting practice for the first time since the injury, but he is still not 100 percent. Running remains the problem for him. He is available to pinch-hit, though, and was last night. If Schoeneweis' spot had come up, Junior probably would have hit for him.
