    Reds vs Giants -- 7/5/07

    Hamilton cf
    Phillips 2b
    Griffey rf
    Conine 1b
    Dunn lf
    Freel 3b
    Gonzalez ss
    Ross c
    Arroyo p

    Pete said he went Hamilton leadoff and Freel lower because Hamilton's OBP is better and Freel's average with RISP is better. Just thought that was interesting.

    Also, he liked Conine's numbers better vs the right-handed Morris

    Different indeed.

    Let's see how it works.

    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

    As long as Gonzalez are Ross are 7 & 8, the rest of the lineup is much less relevant. I really like Freel batting down in the order where his speed is more valuable -- and it gets Hamilton more ABs.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Interesting. If those two facts are indeed true, makes sense to me.

    I though Morris was pitching for the Giants.

    Conine is all of 4-13 with a sub 700 OPS against Morris.

    I believe he is. I looked back through this thread and didn't see any mention of someone stating otherwise.

    Hatteberg was 0-7 against Morris last year.

    Boy, on what other team that Conine could have signed with would he have 80% of his at bats out of the cleanup spot?

    He picked the right team to sign with. His agent should have a big bonus check from him this offseason.

    I'd rather he didn't, but he has his plan to play Freel a lot all over the place.....I guess it's going to happen from time to time.

    Both Freel and Edwin are 1-7 (.143) against Morris. Both have a double.

    Agreed and I guess if you are gonna sit EEE once a week or so then it might as well be vs. someone who hasn't had much success and isn't likely to face anymore this yr.
