    Eddie out again

    Freel, 3B
    Hamilton, CF
    Dunn, LF
    Griffey, RF
    Phillips, 2B
    Hatteberg, 1B
    Gonzalez, SS
    Ross, C
    Harang, P


    I'd start a game thead, but that would break the new rules

    That lineup (minus Ross) scored 11 runs last night. Jerry is probably just riding it another night.

    EdE is definitely not one of Narron's favorites.

    Can't say I blame him - it worked last night

    I wasn't ready to buy into the Narron vs. Encarnacion conspiracy just yet...but it's getting a little more obvious day-by-day.

    Right now, I'd take Hamilton over Encarnacion in the lineup. I know people are going to call for Narron's head, but it's the right move for the time being.

    I think it's just a matter of Narron putting the same lineup out there that put 11 runs on the board last night. I see no problem with going with the hot hands.

    Hamilton seems to find him a permanent spot in the line-up which is good.. in sundays game minus the strikeout he looked really good at the plate and when he swings the ball doesn't miss the bat very often.

    Freel going 4-5 last night may of had something to do with that as well.

    All kidding aside, the absence of another option at lead off probably plays a part here too. Hamilton clearly has to be in the line up due to his hot streak and since Freel is the only leadoff capable guy on the squad, he has to get on the field wherever they can find a hole. He's better at 3B than 2B and Griff and Dunner aren't sitting, which leaves us right here.

    I don't have a problem with it for tonight. When you score 11 runs on 16 hits it is not a bad idea to use the same lineup against another right handed pitcher tonight. I would guess EE will be back tomorrow night. At this point the one thing Jerry has to do above all else is get Hamilton in the lineup every day.
