    How about this lineup vs Hamels tomorrow?

    CF: Norris Hopper
    RF: Ryan Freel
    1B: Jeff Keppiner
    2B: Brandon Phillips
    LF: Adam Dunn
    3B: Edwin Encarnacion
    SS: Juan Castro
    C: Paul Bako
    p: Branson Arroyo


    I don't wanna start Castro but I could see Dusty trying to overload the lineup with righties. Griffey could use a day off.

    Griffey just got a HR.....and was 2/4
    Are you saying he needs rest after 6 games into the season?

    With all the excitment about our future pitching rotation, its important to realize that we have a bright future on offense as well.

    Adam Dunn. Assuming we keep him we will have that one guy that can just smack the ball out of the city. Its important to have one of these kind of guys. Dunn is 28.

    Jeff Kepp. He has been such a great surprise this season and even though he is not a power guy he will be able to get plenty of HR's at GABP because of its size. W ehave to keep this guy. He is only 27.

    Jay Bruce. I have heard nothing but great things from this guy. Not sure when he will get some playing time but when he does I will be on the edge of my seat.

    Joey Votto. Has not impressed that much yet but he says that he has always been a slow starter. He still has major potential and he could very well be a great player for us. Lets hope he gets it going.

    Im so excited to see how our future turns our for our pitchers and our hitters.

    Hamels is equally tough on righties as he is on lefties. I'd say leave your best hitters in there and hope for the best.
    I remember when Bob Boone had an all righty lineup against Randy Johnson featuring Castro at first and he struck out 20.

    Why dont you have Votto in? He has struggled so far but he is young and talented so we need to get him PT.

    Hopper and Freel. That's a scrappy outfield.
    I'm not cool enough to have a good signature

    we are playing to win and with Votto's strugles Hatte gives the best opportunity to do so right now.

    Maybe so, but every single game we play to win, so when does that give us a chance to put in young, unproven players? We need to get him playing time now. BTW, just because you start him doesnt mean he wont help us win.

    Pretty sure Hamels best pitch is his changeup. Which means righties would probably struggle more. I, like someone else said, would just play the best 8 hitters and hope for the best.

    CF - Hopper
    SS - Keppinger
    RF - Griffey
    2B - Phillips
    LF - Dunn
    3B - EE
    1B - Hatteberg
    C - Bako


    Would be surprised to see anything else. I dont like our chances tomorrow with Arroyo facing Utley and Howard. I think Dusty already said he likes Hatteberg better against lefties and with Votto looking bad yesterday I would put my money on Hatteberg getting the start

    Will be interesting to see what Dusty does when Gonzalez gets back.Theres no way you sit Keppinger when he is on fire,and a consistent hitter.This lineup needs good contact hitters to compliment the big boppers.However Kepp has flashed some pop as of late.

    It is nice that we have a SS controversy brewing, rather than no SS.
    Is it "next season" yet?
