Conine comes through

Jeff Conine's two-out RBI double just tied the game for the Reds.

Luckily he was in the 4 hole tonite

Conine should play. He didn't hit a homerun -- he slapped a ball down the line past the third baseman for a double.

He is not a 4hole hitter -- maybe 6,7,or 2, but not 3, 4, or 5. However, the Reds won -- thanks to Phillips Homerun -- in the 2hole. Phillips backed up the talk & won this game for the Reds.

Getting "results" after doing something stupid doesn't transform the stupid into genius. Batting Conine cleanup will not be good for the Reds over the long haul nor, I think, will it give Macanarron a shot at keeping this job, so he needs to wise up. That said, a very good point on the other thread about the emotion we saw last night. Fire in the belly at last and maybe to stay? Mac has this team AMPed. Now if he gets the darn lineup reasonably correct...that will be great but at least he handles pitchers well and he gets a B (which compared with Narron's F average is quite refreshing) for his debut only because of Conine 4th. Otherwise it would have been an "A+" and I know Conine is a clutch and crafty old quality player but come on, no other major league team uses such dumb lineups as the Reds when it comes to the constant shuffling and the four hole.
