    Wow. No matter how you shake it up (and I like what he's done), there still is no answer at third until Edwin comes back. Guess that's normal...

    Btw, I haven't been keeping up--didn't I read where Edwin in on the 60-day DL now? Putting it August until he returns?

    At this point, the only options at 3B are:

    Adam Rosales
    Danny Richar (a converted 2B)
    Jerry Hairston Jr. (with Paul Janish taking over at SS).

    I don't mind giving Richar a look, but I would also like to see that third option at some point.


    As for Encarnacion, he was simply transferred from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL. The time he spent on the 15-day DL counts toward his time on the 60-day DL. It's a procedural move to open a spot on the 40-man roster.

    No, EE's 60 day DL is retroactive to when he originally went on the DL. He's eligible to come back Saturday, and is currently rehabbing in Louisville.

    I actually like tonight's lineup.

    60 Day DL was retroactive.

    Wow, Scott Richmond is a 29 year old rookie, and look at those numbers.

    Thanks, guys. I thought that he would be out until August. At this point, his bat is sorely needed.

    It's not even funny about how far and above Votto is than any other hitter on the team. His approach is 2nd to none.

    I really liked Phillips' plate discipline there.

    Dickerson pops to short
    Hairston flies to left
    Votto walks
    BP pops to 2nd on 1st pitch.

    I also like option3. Of course, I'm not sure better defense at short and worse at third is any better.

    Seeing Votto's approach at the plate contrasted with BPhil's is striking.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Why is FSO showing a repeat of last year's game?
