    Dunn LF
    Edwin 3B
    Griffey RF
    Conine 1B
    Hamilton CF
    Seabass SS
    Ross C

    That way Narron can still do his r/l/r/l/r/l thing. If you wait a night and do it against a righty, you'd have to hit lefties back to back in the middle of the lineup, which I don't know if Narron will do.

    Do you think so? I like his range at 2B. He boots a few here and there and for some reason misses 1B with a throw, but he does alright in my book.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Would you rather have Moeller playing? Or Javy batting right handed?

    And he owns LHP. COld or not, Ross could use a big day at the plate to pick up some momentum out there.

    I just don't have a good feeling about Ross this year. He is doing a good job throwing out runners though.

    Hammy will be in there, soon enough.

    Junior is getting very tired already, after playing 6 games in a row- too tired even to run out an easy double today that he thought he had hit out of the park.

    I don't see why those two can't share the duties out there, unless Hamilton would prove to be over matched at some point.

    One bad game and we're already done with Freel. His OBP was .385 going into tonight, for the most part he's done his job as a lead off man. He had a bad night tonight against a guy he's always struggled against, and with a right hander going tomorrow I'm sure he'll get a day and Hamilton will get a start.

    Freel tends to do this when he is inserted into the lineup every day. He struggles when he starts every day for an extended period of time. People give Ross heck when he struggles at the plate but last night Freel looked absolutly clueless against a left handed pitcher. When you a right handed hitter and you look clueless against a left hander not named santana or randy johnson there is something wrong.

    For whatever reason Freel has always struggled against Doug Davis, it happens. A lot of guys just have pitchers that give them trouble. And I think Freel should get a day off and I think he will tonight. I think he would have last week but Josh Hamilton got really sick. Freel is fine he had a bad game, he needs a rest and he'll get one.

    Brantley attributed Freel's struggles against Davis to the fact that Davis is sooooo incrediblyyyyyyy slowwwwwww.

    Jeff said that Ryan is so hyper that by the time the ball got to him, he'd been waiting to swing forever. Which screws up his timing.

    Maybe Freel needs to take some Doggy Downers against these types of pitchers.
