    No Griffey tonite but Guess who is playing?

    If you guessed Corey Patterson your the 64 million dollar winner. Whatever dirt he has on Dusty it has to be very good cause Dusty continues to put him in the Lineup.

    Hairston SS
    Patterson CF
    Bruce RF
    Philips 2B
    Dunn LF
    Votto 1B
    Encarnacion 3B
    Bako C
    Volquez P

    And seriously, whats wrong with Griffey? I'm starting to think that where he hits 600 has been playing a big part in his sitting out.

    Maybe Patterson will be better this time. Last year, EE performed FAR better after he was recalled.

    Just looking for the silver lining...

    I believe it is askmarty@redsonradio.com

    I'll be listening tonight to see if he can justify it. Odds are he'll say, "because he's crazy." I really like Dusty, but this continuous action of putting Patterson at the top of the order baffles me.

    Since Edwin is showing signs of ermegence, if you simply flip-flopped Patterson and EE you would have something.

    What is wrong with keeping Hairston and Bruce at the top of the order? It seemed to be working to me.

    I'm right back to where I was Sunday in terms of frustration (aside from Bruce finally being up). Corey Patterson isn't the one that makes me want to scream. Corey Patterson is Corey Patterson, and there is nothing he can do to change that. However, Dusty CAN control where he bats Patterson, and seeing him in the 2 hole makes me want to put my head through the wall.

    One would hope and pray that when Griffey plays, Patterson will be on the bench and Bruce will be in center field.

    How can that be possible? When Griffey is ready, patterson will be on the bench.

    When Griffey returns Bruce goes to CF and Patterson to the bench.

    No no no .

    Your missing it as well.

    EE has made a couple baby steps. No where near enough to help this team in 2nd hole however.


    If patterson must play he should be 7 hole.

    If hes got pop in his bat its not like his speed and hits will go un used down there.

    The bottom of the order is very important aswell. People look past sometimes the imprtance of a teams ability to turn the order around.

    In other words not leading off innings with the pitcher. I believe that happened a couple times last night.
