Two days ago I was so upset. Now I'm excited about the coming series with the Reds. I always listen to the games on WLW Cincinnati. It's kinda strange that we're not playing on Memorial Day though.

And the Reds have the day off as well. A shame too because they just played a 18-inning game with San Diego (and lost). I will be attending the games both Tuesday and Wednesday at GABP.

Boy, I think they need to sit Freddy for a few games. 2/13 this series.
I hope it's his shoulder, but he swings at too many really bad pitches. Many he just needs the rest.

Whatever the reason, he's hurting the team now.


So true.

Jack's return, coupled with Gomez and Rivas recent offensive success, allows Freddy to have a break then come back as the .300 lifetime hitter he is and produce from the two/three hole. By then Nate will be back down to earth and should serve as a NL premier lead-off hitter for the rest of the season.

Why change it up now?

Give Freddy some more rest, but when he's in the lineup keep him at leadoff and Nate at #2...They've been doing pretty well there

Let Jack slide into the 6 spot between, and when Doumit is back let him go to the 7th or 8th spot...
