Alonso is 4/13 - .308 against Baily in his career.

Previous numbers go out the window when a guy is mired in a season like Alonso is. We can go ahead and write him off for the year.

Once again, Renteria leaves a starter in too long. I also donít get why Fry is being put into a high leverage situation given his struggles this year. It again seems to me that Renteria seldom puts guys in a good situation to succeed.

Yup.

I guess todayís ďOne Thing With RickyĒ is self-inflicted impediments to winning.

It didn't matter but why does Tilson go from second to third in the ninth inning. With two outs he'll score from second and his run isn't the tying run anyway. Bad baseball moves happens a lot under Ricky and the coaching staff.

Jose Rondon is DHing and batting 5th while Tim Anderson (and his 4th-best batting average in the AL) is batting 7th.

Just dumb.

I think Renteria likes having Anderson hit 7th in order to get on base for the 8 and 9 hitters to attempt to bunt to third.

Itís asinine, but I think thatís what he likes doing.

I think he also wants to provide some protection for Eloy for example so Eloy gets better pitches to hit.

Ok, but then why not have Eloy hit in front of Abreu?

To me, this lineup is a no-brainer, both for winning now and for promoting development through experience:

Anderson
Moncada
Eloy
Abreu
Alonso (I realize he didnít play today; I would DFA him but I at least see the point of LH power there)
McCann/Castillo
Yolmer
Tilson/Cordell
Leury (turns the lineup over)

I'm completely flummoxed. People think that Eloy, right now, is a three hitter?

Well the hype, remember the hype? Maybe someday; but today he's not deserving of the third slot.

I think the point Frater was trying to make is that Eloy would see better pitches with Abreu backing him up in the order. With the team probably not going anywhere this year, why not give it a try and see what happens.

Seriously. He's Maikel Franco right now, and that's not good.

The desire to see Anderson, Moncada and Eloy hit 1-2-3 is in part so they maximize the number of AB they get this year also. Since it's still a rebuilding year the idea is to get them through their growing pains faster. Not saying I completely agree, but I do understand the reasoning.

There is nothing more important THIS YEAR than the continued growth and development of our young players. Winning is secondary THIS YEAR. I also realize many people will find this attitude/approach abhorrent.

To answer your direct question, then...

No, heís not presently performing like a three hitter.

I want him hitting third, though, so that heís more likely to get more fastballs, because:

Anderson/Moncada are often on base and threats to steal; and

Opposing pitchers donít want to walk Eloy to give Abreu more RBI opportunities.

I want him to have these opportunities so that he can continue to develop and grow into his potential.
