Micah Owings Needs More At-Bats

Excluding the one game he started, Micah Owings has only appeared in three of a possible ten games this season. Early success or not, that is inexcusable. Owings is one of the better hitters on this team (I'm looking right at you, Paul Janish) and needs to come to the plate at some point during every game. Every game. The Reds are 6-5 in spite of their offense, and it's more than a little silly that they've lost games while one of their best hitters never got off the bench.

It's possible that Dusty Baker isn't the best manager for unique fellow such as Micah Owings.
