    Hamilton won't play the second game either? I know it's two lefties, but, c'mon...

    Hopper hardly gets to play anymore, and he is killing lefties. I am sure he will get in as a pinch hitter in one or both.

    I can't imagine Ellison will get two starts, I'd bet Hamilton starts game 2.

    Maybe Hopper gets two starts moving to center.

    Griffey sits in the second game, giving us an outfield of Hopper, Ellison and Dunn? I hope that's a joke. Ellison doesn't deserve to start anywhere anytime. Just play Hamilton regardless.

    I'm pretty ruffled by him getting one start :

    Especially if the team is "in the race".

    Of course, that's debatable. In our minds they are, but I doubt the reality is they are. Whatever that means.

    I jsut hate to see guys like Ellison started over Josh Hamilton. He does so much more than hit in a game. It seems there is always one outfielder on the Reds that is clearly a 4th or 5th outfielder that ends up starting that shouldn't.

    Race or not...Josh Hamilton is part of the future....I'm not sure what Jason Ellison is part of...


    Oh, and Hamilton is a better baseball player.

    I will be shocked if Ellison plays the second game and Hamilton sits. My prediction for game 2:

    Dunn in left, Hamilton in center, and Hopper in right.
    Infield: EE at 3rd, Gonzo at short, Phillips at 2nd, and Hatte at 1st, and Ross catching.


    I think lefties may have more throuble with Gorzelanny than Maholm. Lefties are only batting .179 off Gorzelanny, and righties hit him at a .270 clip.

    Against Maholm, the game 2 starter, lefties hit .230, and righties hit .284.

    Therefore, the amazingly logical lineup that Pete is running out there stacks almost all righties against Gorzelanny in game 1, while using more lefties in game 2 against Maholm. It looks like Pete might have taken a little look at the stats! I like that....

    I really don't get the fascination with Ellison, it is absurd. Playing him over Dunn or Hamilton is like you are trying to lose.

    I have a pretty good guess.

    They're about to play 10 games in 9 days. And it's still pretty hot out there. Playing your "studs" in all 10 of those games would be akin to the discussion going on in this thread: http://www.redszone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=61945

    Now... the argument about him being on the roster in the first place... maybe.
