    GONZO to start in PADRES opener.>!?!>?!!!

    Dusty announces Gonzo is ready and will start in the opener against the padres.


    My question is why.


    Hairston is on fire.

    How do you pull hairston out of this lineup!!:thumbdown



    IMO i give him 3 games. Unless Gonzo bats over .333 for the series with a couple of rbi's i pull his butt again and stick hairston back in.

    But i wouldnt even do that until i feel hairston needs a rest, after he cools off a bit.

    I would bet anything that it's Hairston to 3rd and Gonzo in at short.

    Hairston has been playing good SS the last few games, but he IS NOT a good SS. He is on fire so they may play him in LF a little more while he's hot. Gonzo shores up the D, bat him 8th and keep him in the lineup for his glove.

    It is a shame he got injured because he was really starting to warm up offensively lets hope he picks up where he left off fri night.

    right well i would rather have the team changing Rosales playing third and getting better each game as he learns that position.

    Has hairston made an error at short since gonzo has been hurt>?

    I dont think he has. So how not good of a SS can he be.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! Put him on the DL and leave him there. He is done. We are on a roll. This could kill us.

    I seriously hate this move.

    Your team is rolling right now and you go and pick them apart.

    How dumb can you be.

    So you want to leave Votto on the bench when he is good enough to play 9 innings too?

    Good thing is, the Padres are just as terrible as the Dbacks. We might take over first place by the end of the weekend.

    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009

    I dont see hairston playing third.

    If he keeps him in i think hariston will be in left.

    Nix and dickerson left on the bench.
