Here's the lineup for today. Pretty much the same as yesterday in ANOTHER losing effort -
Why is Taveras STILL in this lineup? Dusty might as well stick Homer Bailey in CF and let him hit leadoff. Not to mention, if Dusty thinks that Rosales is a #2 hitter, but doesn't think Rolen or Phillips are, he has SERIOUSLY got something wrong with him. Hanigan should be in one of the top 2 spots of the order.
I am starting a petition online to fire Dusty Baker. This stuff is just getting ridiculous, and doesn't make any sense. The guy obviously doesn't look at statistics and plays his game solely based on "chance." I mean, by "chance" Willy Taveras gets a base hit once a month, and by "chance" Rosales might end up on base too. But playing a game based solely on "chance" isn't going to win you any ball games. "REALITY" states that those two guys rarely get on base, if at all. So by "REALITY," neither should be in the lineup and/or batting in those positions. It's obvious Dusty has lost ALL touch on "REALITY."
I'm going to wager that the Reds lose because "chance" really didn't take place today.
