Its a great move. It hurts his fantasy value but helps the Reds in real baseball. Dunn completly sucks hitting with runners in scoring position. Kearns is a muh better RBI guy by far! Dunn either hits a solo HR, Ks, or Walks. Not much in between.


So how does that help in real baseball exactly? At least if he batted 3rd he would be on base for Griffey and Kearns.


Where would Lopez bat then? If anything Griffey should get off his high horse and not handcuff the Reds by insisting that they bat him 3rd and play him in CF. Right now, Lopez should be batting 3rd and Freel should be playing CF.


Try explaining to your owner then, why the guy he shells out $16 million a year for isn't playing. :-° Sometimes there's more to it than meets the eye. ;-)

Dunn is batting .172 for the last month. I suspect that would have as much to do w/ it as anything? Yes he's big and can hit the ball a mile but you have to hit it FIRST, for it to go a mile.

Dunn batting 2nd today, with Lopez leading off, and Freel in the 8 spot. Wow, I hate the pitcher hitting!

Wild...I wouldn't think that bouncing Dunn around the lineup would help him hit. :-t
