    lets discuss the batting order going forward

    I am a believer in this offense and am against trading for a bat but rather an ACE.

    Some of the hitting woes are just a matter of variance and timliness.

    But whatever i think the problem is the batting order.


    The reds use many lineups but for simplicity:

    Against LHP and hanigan cathching:

    1. Hanigan (he is our best OBP guy besides votto) Makes sense to be at the top.

    2. Cozart (hes getting hits and on base and he is protected by votto to take pressure of deiving in runs early in his career)

    3. Bruce --> this maybe controversial but bruce cant protect votto so let votto protect bruce.

    4. Votto

    5. Philips

    6. Stubbs

    7. Heisey

    8. Rolen/Cairo

    9. Pitcher


    Lineup #2

    Vs RHP Hernandez Cathing

    1. Lewis (.340 OBP)
    2. Cozart
    3. Bruce
    4. Votto
    5. Phillips
    6. Ramon
    7. Stubbs
    8. Rolen/Cairo

    I don't know about Hanigan leading off. Gotta figure a lot of his obp has something to do with the fact that a pitcher is almost always batting behind him.

    Hanigan at the top doesn't make much sense. Yeah, he hits for contact and has a good OBP, but you want more speed at the top that can create things on the base paths. Anyone besides stubbs though and i'd be happy

    Cozart
    Votto
    Phillips
    Bruce
    Stubbs
    Hernandez
    Heisey
    Rolen
    Pitcher

    I get a feeling that Votto in the 2-hole would have him seeing better pitches.

    I would flip Phillips and Cozart but I really wouldn't mind seeing how Jay could do with Votto behind him again. That is what got his bat going originally this year.
