    Who do you pitch to with the game on the line?

    This is tantamount to getting killed by a gun, a knife, drowning or falling.

    I thought this would be somewhat of an interesting poll to see what everyone thought about our nemises.

    Do you mean, "who do you not want to face"? If so, I choose Billy Hall and/or Lance Berkman. Both of those guys destroy us.
    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.

    Against the Reds and which one do you want to face the most i.e. which one is less likely to beat the Reds.

    I must be crazy because I chose Bill Hall, but he is by FAR the worst hitter listed...

    Given those choices, Bill Hall is still the least dangerous in spite of his history of killing the Reds. He's simply not on the same level as Pujols, Berkman or Aramis.

    Bill Hall without a doubt. Unlike the others you listed, Bill Hall will chase pitches out of the zone, especially a nice slider down and away. Unfortunately the Reds haven't realized this. The Reds of those guys are patient hitters who rarely chase bad pitches.

    Hall
    Ramirez
    Pujols
    Berkman

    In that order...

    I'd take Aramis. He's killed the reds, but doesn't have the same rep as a RED-killer. (and the lowest OPS of the 4, BTW).

    All of them have the numbers that say that they could get the job done.

    Aramis seems to have a lapse now and then, I would pitch to him and

    Pujols. Just because it's more satisfying when he fails.

    Would it be in the first inning? cuz that's typically when the game is on the line for this year's Reds

    I'd pitch to Pujols.

    And by pitch to Pujols, I really mean drill him with a fastball.
