Not trying to come down on the youngster but he doesnt need to be hitting second.Hes our only option(outside of B.Phillips)at SS right now so I understand having to play the kid,but why bat him 2nd.I say move Votto or EE (Votto more than likely) up in the order and Janish needs to be moved down to 8th while he plays.There is no justice(for the kid or team) in batting the kid 2nd.This would be my order while Janish has to play.
Bruce - Hes not a leadoff hitter but putting him there now gives him more at bats a game.
JR - hes no 3 hole hitter now but Bakers not moving him.
Phillips - needs to be hitting second or 5th in the order
Dunn - neds to hit 4th as long as he is with the Reds reguardless
EE - has to be hitting somewhere in the top 5
Ross or Bako - have to have a C
Janish - also need a SS
