Well, I guess the reports that Mack wanted to get Javy some time behind the plate and Freel a lot of playing time were true. Yeech.
a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.
I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
2nd time in 3 games EE is sitting.
I hate to see Encarnacion sitting so Freel can play. That is 2 of the last 3 games that has happened.
I like Freel well enough but not at the expense of EE! Stop that! And stop it NOW!
You could play Freel in LF and Dunn at 1st if you MUST have Freel play
How many stolen bases will the Diamondbacks have today?
If having Freel takes time away from Eddie, Phillips, and Hamilton then I say trade him... But only if the return is a major league ready or "close" major league ready arm....

You know, I think Miley, Boone, Narron, and Pete had the same father.
Unless Encarnacion has struggled in the past with Brandon Webb (I don't know, but it's very possible), I would have started Edwin at 3B tonight.
I understand that Mack want to get playing time for Freel, and I'm fine with that. But I would have Ryan get his PT tomorrow afternoon in RF, as I would give Griffey Sunday off, since he isn't going to get much rest over the All-Star Break.

I'm preparing myself for a roller coaster ride of discussions in tonight's game thread....with Bailey on the hill and all...

Here's an honest questions: as a manager, if you're pitching a young kid who has been knocked aroudn a lot in his past few starts, don't you want to stay consistent with who catches him? Not to knock Javy, but I'm wondering if it wouldn't be better for him to stick Ross and Bailey together, if for no other reason than Ross has caught a lot of his previous starts and to negate any potential communication difficulties between the two.
