    No Aurilia either.



    Then there's Bobby Cox who basically Xeroxes his lineup 5 times a week.

    There's nothing wrong with putting Freel at the top of the lineup.

    Sitting EE for Aurilia (against a RH pitcher) or Castro is one thing, sitting him so the hot hitting Freel can hit first is another thing entirely.

    Freel got on base his first 3 times up yesterday, and scored a run in everyone of the Reds 3 scoring innings.

    Well....at least RA is not in there for him.

    What conspiracy theory do people draw from this?

    He has also woken up to the fact that Lopez needs to be moved down.....hopefully, but doubtful, he will start moving KGJ down.

    Strange not to have EE, but thats a STRONG lineup overall.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13, 15
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I think a big part of EE sitting is Narron's strong dislike for throwing errors.

    Add in a hot Freel who made a couple real nice diving catches at the hot corner last night and there you go.

    The conspiracy is still there--Freel is on the wrong side of 30.

    It's a veteran plot!

    That's the lowest I can remember seeing Felipe bat in quite some time.

    I am starting to strongly dislike Narron.

    Either Freel or Aurilia at 3B makes me happy instead of EE. I want to win the last 2 games of the 1st half.
    And This One Belongs to the REDS!!!

    8-16 with EE on the DL. 8-16. Yeah he sucks.

    Almost as much as the bullpen. I don't think EE in the lineup those 24 games means more than 1 or 2 additional wins when you factor in just how awful the 'pen has been.

    Last I checked, you can't stick EE out on the mound in the 11th to shut the door following a Dunn solo shot.

    maybe it allow him to see more pitches to hit with men on base could be a good move by narron

    We scored 4.2 RPG in those 24 games.

    So far the Reds have scored 444 runs in 78 games.
    In the 24 games with Edwin on the DL we scored 103 runs in 24 games.

    Bare with me here while I do the math.
    We have played 54 games with Edwin on the roster (ovbiously not all he has played in) and scored 341 runs.

    So with Edwin on the roster we have scored 6.3 RPG.
    Without him we scored 4.2 RPG


    Even though those numbers aren't exact because they include games he didn't play in while on the active roster, don't tell me we are a better offensive ballclub when he isn't in the lineup.

    You say that is if there are no other variables other than EE being in/out of the line up. Does he have an impact on run production certinally, but you can't just say the reduction in run production is only because of EE's time away.
