Yes, Willy Taveras is back in the leadoff spot today.
Note to Dusty Baker: most of us don’t mind if Taveras is in the lineup against left-handed pitchers. Really, we don’t mind. But he MUST be hitting 8th or 9th, if you are going to play him. Wee Willy just does too much damage to the offense if he is leading off.
I know, I know, this plea is falling on deaf ears. Dusty is smarter than we are; just ask him.
Anyway, the Reds have a chance to win a series today. Discuss it here.
