Due to the success of last nite, does Ozzie now start batting Uribe ahead of Crede?

Why?

Isn't it obvious? 20 runs a game, every game!

I dont think you can use last nights ass kicking as an example of what the Sox should do with the line up.

I think last night was obviously an exception...

Uribe has been swinging a hot bat of late and that's why he moved up in the order.

The lineup is a dynamic beast. It can't (or shouldn't) be set based on one game. Many reasons go into it: Opposing pitcher, who's hot, defense, who needs rest, who needs activity, chemistry etc.

Yes, I'm all for dropping someone who is hitting .310 and 12 HR further down the lineup.

When they announced the lineups at the game, Crede was before Uribe.
Before that inning started, the umps talked to Ozzie and La Russa.
Was the lineup card wrong and that's why they changed spots?
I haven't seen any info on what happened.

From what I understood, the lineup cards were correct but were not the same as released to the media earlier in the day. Ozzie & umps wanted to prevent any confusion.

I thought Ozzie put Uribe in front of Crede because he thought Uribe would get some better pitches. Uribe isn't getting much protection with BA behind him.

Then again, Crede hasn't been getting much protection with Uribe AND BA behind him. So I have no idea why Uribe was in front of Crede last night.

Didn't Ozzie **** up and submit the wrong lineup card to LaRussa?? I thought that was why Uribe was ahead of Crede lastnight...

Did I read that correctly or do I need some sort of glasses like everyone else in my family?

Who changes the lineup when ur 21 games above 500 in june?

I don't think putting Crede behind Uribe in the batting order was the reason for the offensive outburst in the first game but, it may be the reason for Uribe's success at the plate the first game VS the Cards.

Uribe has been on fire and the reason for that may be the fact that he has Crede protecting him in the order. He's probably getting better pitches to hit. And who knows maybe his confidence level is up.

This might be worth looking at. I'd keep Crede behind Uribe in the order for a little while to see how it plays out.

I say let Ozzie work his magic. We are 21 games over 500 and Juan is hitting pretty good as of late. It is not like this is a permanent thing, the lineup is changing constantly. If we can get over 10 runs a game, I say do what you gotta do.

He's probably getting better pitches to hit.

33 runs in two games, I'd say that everybody is getting better pitches to hit.:wink:

I do believe Anderson is serving his suspension.

Thank you for reminding me that Blondie is out for a few days for clubbing a Chub in a donnybrook I won't soon forget if my brain is engaged.

New Revised Line Up Due To BA Suspension:

Pods
Gooch
Thome
Konk
Dye
AJ
Crede
Uribe
Macko

This suggested line up would produce wonderful results and enjoyment.
