    Lineup selection suspicions are confirmed !

    "Who's going to lead off?" Narron repeated the question with a smile. "We'll probably just draw it out of a hat like I normally do. It will probably be either Hopper or Dewayne Wise."
    Ah the truth is revealed.

    Wise and his sub-.300 OBP in AAA leading off?

    Sigh.

    You can't really fault Hopper at the top of the lineup. In his limited time, he seems to be just as productive as the struggling Freel. If he can back up last night's performance and get on base 2 or 3 times a game, he might lock up the spot for the near future.

    Jerry is managing the game the way he played it back in the '70s. Speed, defense, sacrifice bunts and Astroturf. He apparently missed the fact that chicks (and people that love to score runs) dig the long ball.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    16 of Wise's 38 at-bats for the Reds last year were in the leadoff spot - that's 42%.

    Oh, he's serious.

    Please, Jerry, continue to joke. Your team's performance on the field certainly warrants you to do so.
