Dunn hits a walk off and gets benched. Awesome.
Javy playing vs. a lefty.
Cantu batting 5th.
There's also no Josh Hamilton in that lineup. He takes out two guys with an OPS of .930+ and replaces them with Hopper and Ellison.
I will offer no complaint of who the Reds hire as permanent manager, as long as that man is not Petey Mac.

At the very least, Dontrelle Willis has a sore/tired arm. Dunn and Hamilton need to play tonight.
I see no problem with resting Dunn tonight. He's hardly had a break all year.
You could say that Dunn should be in the lineup against Willis since Willis is having a sub-par year, but that could also be a good reason to start Ellison. The Reds may not need a lot of power in the lineup tonight.
Also, the Reds will have Dunn and Hamilton available to pinch-hit late in the game when Willis is likely to be out.
There is no reason to sit 2 of our starting OF ever.
everyone sits once in a while, including Dunn and Josh, and AG is not ready, period.
