    Too complexed, the task is overwhelming and perplexes the Reds think tank.

    Patterson and Phillips, low OBP hitters, now are the table setters. It may work for one game, but it's certainly not in the text book

    Assuming Patterson HAS to leadoff, Dusty is pretty close to what I'd do, though I'd probably swap Kepp and Phillips.

    I really want to see Dusty pressed on CPat leading off. It was one thing when he was swinging a hot bat, but there's no justification for it now.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
