    It's time...

    1B: Votto/Cantu
    2B: Phillips
    SS: Keppinger
    3B: Encarnacion

    Dunn/Bruce/Hamilton/Griffey/Hopper outfield

    Let's see it.

    Hatteberg can be used off the bench, along with Gonzo....

    Let's do it.

    I don't know that Cueto is ready. He's pitched no higher then AA. Let's don't pull a "Bailey" on another 21 yr old. He's not going anywhere.

    Guys jump AAA all the time in other organizations...I'm not saying he's ready, I'm just saying that it's not uncommon.

    Actually, he pitched 22 innings at AAA this year and was good, winning 2, striking out 21 and walking 2.

    But I agree. Let him stay in the minors 'til next year.

    Re: It's time...

    I just look at our past history and the way we have rushed (even abused) young arms to try and get them to the ML level.

    It's agreed that our need is great in this area, and has been for quite awhile; but I just don't want them to rush these kids because I really don't think they are quite ready and a September callup and "throwing them to the fire" when we are out of it, isn't going to help much IMO.

    Why start Bruce's arbit clock?

    Let him get consistent PAs in AAA until this organization either does the unthinkable and doesn't pick up Dunn's option, or does the impossible and finds a fair market value trade for Griffey.
