    What kind of odds could you have gotten in April on that being a Reds lineup in 2007?

    I'm thinking about a Powerball ticket.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    What does Dunn have to do to move above BP in the lineup?

    Want a big sample size? Dunn is a better for his career: .897 OPS to .705
    Want a more recent sample? Dunn is better this year: .929 to .782
    Want even more recent? Dunn is better since Aug 1: 1.104 to .724
    Want even MORE recent? Dunn is better in the last week: 1.415 to 1.007

    Oh wait, it's just because we're facing a lefty. Riiiiiiight. That's why he's behind Junior...

    I get it that lineup order is fairly insignificant. I just wish I understood the logic.

    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.

    I would have considered starting Valentin, even against the LHP.

    Another bunt single for Hopper!

    Ridiculous strike two call on Dunn.

    Most people figured Griffey would be traded by now.

    He should try hitting it to the right side to try to defeat teams from setting up against his bunts.

    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

    Welsh extoling the virtues of walks....

    Serriously.

    Unfortunatley, he was talking about a Braves player.

    Reyes needs to spend some time in the cage practicing his bunting.
