    Griffey should be the one sitting against lefties most times. He hasn't hit lefties and could use the reduced schedule at this stage. I'm not sure this works politically, but it works baseball wise.

    I agree that the good hitting this year by Hairston and Keppinger are pleasant surprises and a good "problem" to have. Right now they have, respectively, .370 and .380 OBPs. That's what the Reds need at the top of the lineup. With Dunn's high OBP I would consider hitting him third. That's how the top of a batting order should work.
    Okay KC,
    How long have you been a Reds insider? Seems like you were very accurate.

    Good to guess right every once in awhile. More importantly, they won.

    Tomorrow I'm guessing Jay Bruce sits, to the consternation of all Reds fans. Should be good for about a ten page thread.

    My guess is Dunn gets to sit tomorrow and pinch hit in the 9th for the walk-off HR.

    I love the Jay Bruce we saw in the minors, I love the Jay Bruce we saw when he first came up, this Jay Bruce though can sit and have a day off when it benefits the team. As long as Mr. Baker is trying to put his best foot forward as he has been of late, I have no complaints. I am confident that we all learned something about Joey and Javier last night and are moving forward.
