It's incredible how slow Human Beings are to change. 360 years since since the "Blue Laws" went into effect and the majority of the U.S. and Great Britain still behave like they were enacted this Century.


Rotoworld's "Daily Lineups" list only one stat next to the player's name, including the Pitcher's, and that stat is Batting Average, as if that has anything to do with a player's effectiveness at this time and in this particular game.


It's really amazing how people are so uncomfortable with change.

Buster Posey is out for the series on the 7 day concussion list. Guess it happened in the next to last game against the Reds (Sunday, May 5th). A foul ball in the Bottom of the 4th. Not sure who was batting, but it appears only Iglesias, Peraza and Castillo were at the plate that inning.

I also like it. The only change I would make is Barnhart 8th and Castillo 9th, but I am philosophically opposed to the pitcher batting up in the order (unless that pitcher is Michael Lorenzen).

I always built my team with two strong starting pitchers, a flamethrower in the bullpen, one or two sluggers, and a bunch of high-average speedsters who could play defense. I always had a SS with a cannon who could dive into the hole and come up firing, and a CF who could cover ground and climb the wall to take away potential home runs.

Meanwhile...

The Reds have the best rotation stats in baseball.
The only power the Reds have from the left side of the plate is a budding Winker and an invitee to Spring Training.
Chris Davis didn't have a hit for like 4 months and you can't even tell his slash line apart from Votto's.
Homer Bailey is a quality start machine.
