    I hope Freel can do better against lefties than what he was doing before he went on the DL.

    Unless he's injured, Hamilton should be playing basically every day regardless of who is pitching. Considering we just had an off day, there is really no excuse here.

    And Conine continues to bat clean-up against lefties. I'm sick of complaining about these line-ups, but the same problems keep coming back. It's only one day, but the same philosophy is still there.

    Maybe the new guy is going to make changes slowly? Pete may not want to come in and immediately start changing things.

    Maybe Narron's lineups were already done, printed, and posted....

    Pete says he plans to use Freel everyday and at all positions according to C. Trent.

    Freel's PT should not come at the expense of Josh Hamilton, except for when he needs a day off for whatever reason.....I'm not sure who's it should, but Josh's it shouldn't.

    Perhaps because his OPS this season vs. LHP is .781. That's good for 3rd amongst Reds "regulars" vs. LHP. That's not good.
    When all is said and done more is said than done.

    I imagine with the time available, he just penciled in what Jerry did and went with it to get a feel for this club.

    at least I hope.

    I'm going to play the small sample size card.

    This is 100% correct. In every respect.

    Once Dunn is traded, Hammy will play every day. They don't want three lefty outfielders against Zito. Can't sit Griffey v. Bonds. Dunn doesn't sit against lefties either.

    Guess he could have sat EE for Freel tonight, which would have resulted in 250 complaints around here.

    Too many bodies I guess, and only 8 slots....

    Interesting note on John Fay's blog about tonight's game.

    Rob Butcher was kind enough to pass this along. It's courtesy of the Elias Sports Bureau...

    Tonight’s game between the Reds and Giants will feature 2 players with a total of 1,335 home runs (Bonds 750, Griffey 585).

    It is the highest home run total between 2 players entering a game since Cleveland played at Milwaukee on 8/1/76 and featured 1,341 homers between Frank Robinson (586) and Hank Aaron (755).

    The game with the most homers between 2 players occurred on 7/17/73, when the Mets played at Atlanta. Willie Mays entered that game with 658 homers and Hank Aaron had 697 for a total of 1,355. Aaron homered in that game to bring the total to 1,356.
