    BTW, CW said yesterday that Pete really likes Gonzo in the 2 hole versus RHPs.

    That's the way, uh huh, uh huh ...

    Well, he does have an OPS of .856 vs RHP this year. The OBP is only .333 though.

    which suggests 6 or 7 hole.

    The problem the Reds have is none of the RH hitters are good OBP guys and we know Pete(and Jerry) loves the L-R-L-R stuff.

    Sad part is a Hamilton, Votto, Jr, Dunn quartet to start the lineup would scare the hell out of any RHP. Maybe if the Reds got early leads those late inning ABs wouldn't mean as much.

    batting him 8th is not a real good way to kick off his career.

    I'm sure it's Pete's way of breaking him in easy.

    Nothing wrong in breaking a guy in slow. Batting 8th should take off some pressure.

    True. Batting him 2nd would get him better pitches to hit though.

    also make sure he doesn't see much to hit.

    Apparently he got lasik surgery before the game.

    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

    Somewhat unrelated, but I thought I'd see where some other former Reds batted in their first games. I got as far as Perez and Bench, both of whom batted 4th or 5th, but I noticed something in Bench's first game which, were it to happen now, would have given half of Redszone strokes - in the bottom of the 9th with no one out and Tommy Helms on first base, Chico Ruiz (bench me or trade me) pinch hit for Johnny. Oh my, how we would have howled. JB, BTW, went 0-3 with 2 K's. Whatta bum.

    Pete M. batted 8th in his first game, and it worked for him.
