and batting 3rd....
You have got to be kidding me....
This isn't the lineup that Yahoo is listing.
The have Patterson at leadoff, Hairston 2nd, and Griffey 3rd. Unless they have changed it because of the rain and taken Griffey out...
Matta = Really good
Yeah, Griffey is sick so he's out for tonight.
Seriously. I've seen enough. There's got to be a highschool coach someplace that can manager better then Dusty, school almost out, so they can go grab a guy easy.
I never thought Dusty was a good manager, but watching him manage the Reds everyday makes me believe he is borderline incompetent. Dunn should always bat before Patterson. It seems so obvious yet Dusty misses it.
Patterson career in the 3-slot
