    Re: Opening Day lineup is out

    I don't mind Dunn batting 5th, in fact, I think it kinda makes sense. With Griffey batting 3rd, chances are he'll drive in some runs. Having Phillips next gives him a chance to get on, and Dunn at least has the possibility to get him around, or even hit more 2-run home runs than solo shots.

    I don't know. It made sense in my head, but I'm not sure I explained my thinking very well.

    Or possibly on thursday or friday. Maybe he just doesn't want him coming out and facing Webb/Haren. Let Hatteberg take the good pitchers and ease Votto in for a couple weeks until Votto can step in fully.

    Here's what I would do:

    Keppinger
    Encarnacion
    Dunn
    Griffey
    Phillips
    Hatteberg/Votto
    Patterson
    Catcher
    Pitcher
    Thank goodness for baseball.

    Anyone who complains about that lineup is just nitpicking or was pre-disposed to hating Dusty from the beginning. Solid lineup - hopefully one that can hang 7 or so on Webb.

    I disagree, there is definitely a legitimate complaint against Patterson.

    Considering who is currently on the 25-man, I completely agree.

    I'd like to see Keppinger in that two spot alot this year. His ability to hit to all fields really intreagues me out of that spot. If Patterson can find his swing, and get on base with some regularity, we could have a good lineup.

    Patterson was penciled into the CF/Lead-off spot the minute he signed with the team, we all should have seen that one coming.
    I really don't see too much to complain about and there are no real surprises.

    Battle of the teams using sub 300 OBP guys to lead off.

    Seriously though I have a feeling Patterson legs come in handy opening day vs the groundballer Webb. I just don't want him there all season if he's putting up his career averages.
