    Maybe Dunn will see some pitches in front of Jr.

    If the slump continues I hope he doesn't go Bob Boone on us. Starting to get there already with this lineup.

    At least they realize there is an on-going slump. Better then denying, I guess.

    Can't blame Narron for trying shake things up. To hoping this works and the Reds can score more than two runs today.

    Griffey hasn't been exactly ripping it up since coming off the DL (except for one certain AB last week). I wonder why he was immune to the lineup switch?

    Moving Freel down the order and Dunn to second is the extent of this lineup switch - why pick out Junior to make a snide comment about?

    Because no one is safe...

    Honestly though, the whole Jr staying in CF gets at me. It is more than obvious that he is better suited in LF. I wonder if he would ever get moved out of the 3 hole.

    FWIW, Pirates are 2-11 this year in day games. Reds are 10-8.
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    Does that take the Dave Williams factor into consideration?

    Williams = Pirates version of slump-buster?
