My guess is Jay Bruce. Janish hitting 2nd behind him.

Leading off and playing SS for the Reds today, CP.

Just Kidding, I think.

My money is on Bruce.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

I personally would hit phillips lead off. Slide Dunn to the cleanup spot vacated by phillips. I wouldn't put the pressure of leading off on Jay. Kids doing perfectly fine in the 2hole right now.

Honestly, Votto. He makes consistant contact, has a good eye, and isn't afraid to do what he's gotta do with 2 strikes. Once Kepp comes back, he'd hit leadoff in my lineup.

I wonder who gets called up?

Janish will lead off. Hopefully Keppinger is back next week.

Janish will lead off. Hopefully Keppinger is back next week.

I agree with you, it will be Janish.

I'm guessing this injury might shorten Keppinger's rehab assignment.

this is a very bad injury for this team, a lineup with janish hitting leadoff will be hideous, but i don't know of anything i would really do differently. Is Norris Hopper close to coming back?

Corey Patterson homered a couple of games ago. That probably has Dusty thinking Corey has his stroke back.

So I would be forced to agree with ChatterRed. Be very afraid.

I like Janish, but he is a classic #8 guy. If he is at the top of the order ,the Reds are in trouble (more so than now)!

Phillips could lead off if he slid over to short:evil:
