    Normally I agree, but it's getting toward the end of the season, so I don't think it matters as much. Rosales is basically a September callup--he just got here two or three weeks early. I guess they could have given him #16 (which I think was the only available low number when he first got the call), but when he came up for Votto, I think they thought he would only be up for a couple of days. I also think that they didn't anticipate Rosales coming back so quickly because of Hairston's recurring injury. I would expect the Reds to assign a low number to him next spring.

    The Reds score four runs in 27 innings. They are fortunate to leave Chicago with a 1-2 record in the series.

    Phillips bat is being exposed now that he doesn't benefit from hitting between Griffey and Dunn.

    Agreed

    I also think that the guy that placed him in the four hole this year is being exposed too.

    Pretty sure that Jocketty knows a cleanup batter after his years at St. Louis vs a Phillips, a Baker decision.
