    Griffey will hit 699 and 700 tonight with Bruce gretting him at the plate each time.

    I think Jocketty made that lineup. No way Dusty did.
    Who's on first?

    I don't see why he couldn't hit 102 home runs in tonights game. He OWNS Ian Snell.

    nah, the hallmark of a Dudepick lineup is still there. 1. CF, 2. SS, or vice versa.

    This is a fun and exciting lineup. I think Dusty done a pretty good job with this one. Griffey has been swinging the bat well and pitchers still seem to fear him. It will be interesting to see how they pitch to Bruce with Griffey behind him.

    The consensus opinion around baseball is that Bruce will struggle because of his strikeout to walk ratio. He strikes out way too much and walks way too little.

    In his case, I don't think it's going to matter as his career will be a constant battle of adjustments year after year as opponents try to figure out ways to stop this guy.

    There should be plenty of peaks and valleys as he goes through the process.

    Should be lots of fun to watch.

    I don't think the consensus is that Bruce will struggle due to his high strike out rate. I think what he means to say is if he does struggle it will likely be due to his strike out to walk ratio. Rotoworld and other sites have brought this up.
