    7-13-07 vs Mr. Met

    Lineup per C Trent:

    Freel 3b
    Hopper cf
    Griffey rf
    Phillips 2b
    Dunn lf
    Hatteberg 1b
    Gonzalez ss
    Ross c
    Harang p

    Hopper batting 2nd. It's scraptastic!
    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.

    Well, at least the Mets won't pitch around Dunn..........

    I think Petey Mac draws numbers for his lineup construction the way some Catholic churches call Bingo Night.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    I'm going and I don't see EdE. WEAK!

    But thank God Harang is throwing. I'd be throwing (up) if Lohse was pitching.

    Maine has been throwing well for the Mets.
    Guess its "manufacturing runs" time.

    BP has a .749 OPS this year in the cleanup spot.

    11 Reds have at least 100 AB.

    OBP
    1. Hatteberg, .407
    2. Griffey, .391
    3. Hamilton, .371
    4. Dunn, .355
    5. EE, .348
    6. Conine, .326
    7. Hopper, .323
    8. Phillips, .322
    9. Freel, .307
    10. Gonzalez, .295
    11. Ross, .248

    SLG
    1. Griffey, .566
    2. Dunn, .544
    3. Hamilton, .543
    4. Hatteberg, .489
    5. Phillips, .478
    6. Gonzalez, .442
    7. Conine, .412
    8. Ross .401
    9. EE, .385
    10. Freel, .361
    11. Hopper, .339


    Now I see how it works. Hitting high in the order isn't about getting on base. It's about not having any power whatsoever.

    3 of the top 4 spots in the order are occupied by low OBP guys. Nice.

    I hope Freel and his Amazing Versatility are being showcased for interested parties.

    Play Keppinger at third base if Encarnacion isn't going to play.

    I wonder if Mac knows that Dunn hits lefties better than Hopper and Freel hit anybody.

    Stop making sense, guys. We'll have none of that around here.

    Remember: Ryan Freel is the Reds' SPARK (he'll cause a short circuit every time).

    I'm beginning to wonder if anyone remotely identified with this franchise can pick a manager...

    Bowden - Boone
    Bowden - Miley
    O'Brien - Narron
    Krivsky - Narron
    Macklanin (not fair, I know).

    All basically have done the same thing leading me to believe that maybe, just maybe, all the good managers are gone.
