    I want to complain about the lineup, but really does it matter? Could it really be any better? Sure flip Dunn and Conine, but big deal right?

    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

    Not really. I have a feeling more people will be in the minor league update thread than the game thread again tonight anyway.

    You know if Dunn said he was a switch hitter with the same splits he has he'd be batting cleanup a lot more.

    You'd think averaging less than 3 runs a game over the last dozen would cause a change in philosophy about lineup construction...especially with a weapon like Adam Dunn.

    But, if you're happy with his .729 OPS in the 5th hole...fire away.

    He did...he moved Phillips out of the cleanup spot and inserted Conine.

    I like Phillips moving to 2 better, but Conine isn't a cleanup hitter.

    And why not move Ross and his 815 ops to the 6th or 7th spot, ahead of Gonzo's sub .600? Ross needs protection, Gonzo does not benefit by it.

    Chat, for those interested, is open.
    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

    That probably wasn't the luckiest way to start your major league debut.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Sounds like Freel just gave Dumatrait's debut a kick start. Single, walk, single to center, Freel throws out Lopez at home.
