    Batting first eliminates 1 chance of GIDP a game.

    If Phillip Ervin has to play then he needs to bat 9th

    I was thinking, since he's the one guy with speed, it would make more sense for him to run in front of the bottom of the order than to get thrown out in front of the guys at the top. Stealing should be limited to the bottom half of the batting order. Why take a chance at getting caught in front of the best hitters?

    I haven't read all the Red beat writers in the last few days (I concede I follow them less closely during the season when they manage about 2.5 hits per 9 innings because it makes me rather depressed) but have any of them had any writings on 1. Votto batting leadoff, 2. Are they giving up on Shugo or 3. Senzel's status?

    The lack of hits, in my opinion, is a failure to adjust to the shift.

    Maybe they'll learn to hit tonight in Milwaukee.

    In theory.

    But in practice, not so much.

    Agree with your first 3. After that I'd go Moose, Suarez, Davidson, Votto, Casali, Ervin.
