Austin Kearns no longer a starter?

Postby phunkadelic » Tue May 10, 2005 11:56 am

From everything I can see, I don't think Austin Kearns is a starter anymore. And this is coming from a Cincinnatian.

Maybe Slomo or some other Reds fans can shed some light on this.

After hitting 2 HR in 2 games (one as a pinch-hitter I believe), Austin Kearns has been riding the bench while Ryan Freel starts in RF for the last 2 games. And it's not like they need somewhere to stick him, so Kearns is the odd man out; rather, they've been playing Felipe Lopez (their backup SS) at 2B (where Freel can play) and leaving Rich Aurilla (horrible) in at SS. So basically, they've been choosing Aurilla and Lopez and Freel all over Kearns.

I don't know who it is, but it seems like somebody in Cincy doesn't want Kearns to play anymore.

You have basically summarized the reason so many Cincy fans are upset right now. Freel has been playing well...but play him at 2b and play Kearns in RF. Aurilia is terrible and should not be starting...let Lopez play SS.

I don't understand Miley right now...but it's frustrating if you're a Kearns owner.
