Awesome to see Aurilia back in the 4th spot. Maybe Narron can rotate him and Castro in that spot.

This is one of the first lineups in weeks I actually agree with. Flip flop Kearns and Aurilia and I'd be happy. IMO.

Yeah, really. I have no idea how Narron could look at Aurilia and Kearns and conclude that Richus is a more productive or powerful hitter.

Krivsky should assign lineup decisions to someone else. What is with RA? Seriously. A righty is pitching. He doesn't hit righties. He hits like Castro against RHPs.

I swear Narron has pre-printed lineup cards with RA in the 4th spot. I also don't like Ross batting 8th when he is one of the hottest hitters on the team.

TOBTTReds
06-16-2006, 07:12 PM
Whew -- no Castro

Why? I'd rather have him start, he is better in the field and almost identical numbers vs. RH'ers.

Aurilia's numbers vs. RH'ers .222/.260/.311/.571
Castro's numbers v. RH'ers .239/.246/.308/.554

This is so sad, and frustrating as hell that Aurilia is batting cleanup vs. a RH

Maybe Jerry likes to talk to Richie's wife and she compliments him on his choice of batting her husband 4th.

Not that I condone that type of behavior.......

Not having to face both Thome and Konerko makes me happy. Rich Aurilia in the cleanup spot AGAIN takes that away.

Claussen getting what? TJ stole his stuff and he isn't getting the breaks like last year, he is quite unlucky this year like 2004. The Reds don't matchup with the Sox, nor will they for at least through 2007. I don't expect much from them the coming weeks ahead.

I don't care if he uses an Ace bandage with Duct tape at this point - that has to be better than Claussen at somepoint.

I'd drag Gary Nolan out of the casino and let him pitch again.

MWM
06-16-2006, 08:31 PM
Hawk Harrelson might be the only person on earth worse than the Washinton Nationals' announcers. I'd rather listen to 3 hours on fingernails on the chalkboard than him.

And Ed Montague if TERRIBLE.

Not that it matters. This is the first team the Reds have played this year that is a complete and utter mismatch for the Reds. I'd be surprised if they don't get swept. The White Sox are just that much better than this team.

Harang's been consistantly good....maybe he's hit a little funk, which, like hitting, happens. He's still kept the team in the games giving them a chance to win. I'm not too worried about him.
