    I think the fact that Zito started is a key reason.

    Great hitting today, but a lineup with Hairston, Patterson, and Freel is probably not a lineup we want to throw out there very often. It helps that Zito is downright terrible right now.

    It's not negativity, it's reality. Do you really think the Reds would be successful the entire year with that lineup?

    Who said anything about being successful for the entire year? Considering Dunn and Griffey have been horrible lately, this was the right lineup, TODAY.

    Juan Castro could have hit Zito today.

    I do think that today showed that the Reds will be ok without Griffey and Dunn longterm. Pencil in Jay Bruce in place of Freel or Jerry Hairston Jr. and add in BP, Votto, Kepp and EE. Not too bad of a lineup.

    The fact that the OP said Griffey and Dunn "clogging" was the reason the offense was doing terrible.

    I didn't mind the lineup today at all, in fact I thought it was good to rest them. All I was saying that Griffey and Dunn producing is vital to the team, and it can't be replaced by Freel and Hairston forever.

    It would be very hard for me to watch that lineup every day.

    Because they wouldn't score 10 runs every day. They would have struggle's just like the other line up eventually.

    I thought that was a pretty good lineup, helped us defensively.
