    Taveras Stat O' the Week....

    OF Willy Taveras(notes) drew a walk in the first inning against the Nationals Friday, his first walk since July 19. It was his fourth walk since May 24.



    FOURTH Walk since May 24th. THIS is your CF Savior and leadoff man.

    Just incredible. Almost as incredible as CF bats leadoff, SS bats 2nd, no matter how PUTRID they are.

    PEACE

    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

    To give him credit, Dusty HAS batted Dickerson in leadoff since he returned from the DL.

    In all, he was 7 for 17 with 3 BB's (including 0-1 in ph), an OBP of .500.
    Of course he only scored 3 times being on base 10 times in 5 games because the rest of the offense is pathetic - but he's doing his job.

    PEACE

    At least he made Kenny Rosenthal's low risk, low reward list.

    even with this knowledge care to guess the lineup with Phillips out?

    Brandon Phillips was scratched from today's lineup with a sore left hand. He was hit on the hand with a pitch last night. X-rays were negative. Here's the lineup:

    Willy Taveras cf
    Drew Sutton 2b
    Joey Votto 1b
    Jonny Gomes rf
    Wladimir Balentien lf
    Adam Rosales 3b
    Paul Janish ss
    Ryan Hanigan c
    Justin Lehr p

    Taveras...WHY?

    2 question about Taveras. First question. Why does he start over Dickerson. Anyone know, because I dont. Second question. Why does he swing at the first pitch 50 percent of the time. Especially with Dusty the terrible batting him lead off. He needs to sit on the bench or bat 8th in th eorder. I would rather see Dickerson or Stubbs start in CF and lead off with Willie sitting the bench. Thats just me so how do you guys feel. Sarcasim(sp)

    Because Tavares is faster. Your lead off hitter must be fastest player and play CF, dude.

    Walks are icky, you want your hitters to be hitters not watchers, dude. Forget OBP, you gotta look at in-scoring position...

    Dude, dont you know Willy's Fast.

    I wish this team would remember what sunk cost means and do something to get rid of Tavares so Duhhhsty can't use him.

    You forgot one thing: the club has a terrible owner who not only hired the willfully ignorant Toothpick, but just declared that the team and the fans are "absolutely" stuck with him into the 2010 season.

    Just blatant disregard for those left who actually care.
