    Re: Horrible Lineup news

    Narron hasn't given a straight answer all spring so I doubt this lineup will be used opening day. It will probably be used for game 2.

    Even Narron isn't that stupid ... I hope.

    Hat
    Ross
    Gonzo

    would be my choice.
    This is what I'd like to see as well

    If hes batting 6th then we can expect him to be pitched around to face the guys behind him.

    We shouldnt worry though, this is probably lineup 1 of 130+.

    IMHO Narron and many other Managers put far too much stock into staggering their line ups left, right, left, right.....

    Put your best OBP and OPS hitters 1-5 in line up in order to get them more ABs to increase your chances of avoiding outs and scoring runs.

    Re: Horrible Lineup news

    This is my lineup:

    Freel
    Hatteberg
    Dunn
    Encarnacion
    Griffey
    Phillips
    Ross
    Gonzo

    I like Dunn in the 3 hole because I think he's going to have a huge year, and I want more people on base for him.

    I hope that Fay is wrong, but if his article is correct, I'm reduced to hoping that at least once before I die that the Reds get a manager with at least a room temperature baseball IQ. Boone, Miley, Narron......I can't take much more of this.

    Narron might be a good clubhouse guy, but just thinking out loud about putting Dunn in the 6th spot just proves how much of an idiot he actually is. Unbelievable. I don't think he'll do it, but it's beyond my comprehension to even think about Dunn batting anywhere in the order other than 2-4.

    Re: Horrible Lineup news

    We must realize, this is Jerry Narron we are talking about.
    I would not be surprised to see this lineup opening day. I would be very surprised if this lineup was not used sometime during the season. I would also be very surprised if Gonzo does not lead off, bat second and bat third in at least one game this year.
    I have a feeling we are going to be in for another long year of the juggling batting rotation again this year.

    Re: Horrible Lineup news

    I kinda like today's ST lineup:

    Ryan Freel CF
    Adam Dunn LF
    Brandon Phillips 2B
    Ken Griffey Jr. RF
    Edwin Encarnacion 3B
    Joey Votto 1B
    Alex Gonzalez SS
    David Ross C
    Bronson Arroyo P

    Swap in Hatte for Votto, and that looks like a winner to me.
    Makes all the routine posts.
