    That sentiment gets echoed with his decisions concerning Freel and Hamilton. That was based upon 31 Ab with RISP for Freel this season and only 40 such AB for Hamilton this year. What's worse Pete used batting average as a criteria.

    WOW is all I have to say.....
    I edited because I hadn't read Pete's pre-game remarks about RISP, but as for why I'd move Freel down in the order when he plays...

    Freel has a 249BA/308 OBP this season, coming off of a 238BA/340OBP post All-Star break last year, with each month looking worse than it's predecessor. He's been in steep decline for his past 400ABs, and I have no problem getting a young guy like Hamilton more ABs right now as our leadoff guy, given his 362OBP, the way he's swinging the bat with great superiority to Freel, and given his chance for improvement.

    I would think between now and July 31st job one with the Reds is to increase the value of every tradeable commodity they have.

    That riverboat music in the background is annoying.

    Never a good idea to walk the batter in front of Bonds. This could get ugly very quick.

    Wow...Ross.

    They had Bonds out on a foulout and Ross drops the ball.

    just an awful defensive catcher, the only thing he does well is throw.

    Bonds lines into a 4-6 DP. 0-0 mid 1st.

    Clutch double play.

    Morris almost looks tired already. Let's get some runs off of him now.
