    After the last two nights I wasn't sure if I was going to watch this game.

    With Hamilton in, I think I will.

    It looks like the speed is well dispersed in that lineup.

    Things to look for tonight:
    -continued plate discipline from the Natural
    -hopefully Ross will make contact for the first time. It seems like he's 0 for the year.
    -hopefully Freel will echo the plate discipline of Hamilton and give us a better lead off approach
    -IF...Freel, Hamilton and BP can get on base...steal LOTS of bases tonight

    and...

    with those guys on base, maybe we can see a better example of small ball and moving the runners...hence getting the right things done with RISP!


    Oh, and we're not playing the Pirates.

    I like the dropping of Phillips in the line up.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I like this lineup. A lot.

    Just kidding. I like the move too. Hatteberg's bad line in the second slot doesn't bother me too much. Historically he's not that bad there.

    I generally don't get into slot hitting for players. Hatteberg has a decent ability to hit, and I think he can bring that regardless of where he hits. Some places he could be marginally better, but I happen to think 2nd spot is a nice spot for his on base abilities in front of Dunn.

    I really do like the fact that the top 4 guys all exhibit very solid plate discipline (maybe even 5 if Hamilton continues the patience he has exhibited since spring training.

    We need to win this one, and by more than one run. I'm sick of these close wins/losses.
