Daktronics has made a name outfitting stadiums across the country with high definition scoreboards and the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati is no different. Reds fans can look forward to a 138 by 39 foot high main scoreboard, plus two other displays behind left field, and the first use of Daktronics' HD-16 LED technology for a higher res ribbon board along the first and third base lines. Sony's jumped in the game, outfitting the stadium with top notch broadcast and production equipment, plus our favorite feature, as the stadium's 64 luxury suites feature 46-inch BRAVIA HDTVs and Vaio PCs running StadiumView software, which lets fans choose which HD feed to watch via touchscreen.

Check out our listed lineup - pure fantasy

Vs. Lilly, a LHP:

- BP in the 2 hole (gonna be SS, probably)

- Votto at cleanup (gonna be BP)

- Hernandez 5th (EdE or Votto here)

- Dickerson (BA listed at .304) hitting 8th (Gomes, for sure - probably 7th)

- Bruce, Phillips, Dickerson all hitting over .300 and EdE hitting .291!

Someone in the graphics dept. is doing some drinkin' :laugh:

Now if only they could install a decent speaker system in the park. There are some areas where it is impossible to hear the PA system.

It could just be my bad eyes, but it looks like they have Harang batting .320. I know the lineup and averages are crazy, but that has to be the best of them all! I mean, I know Aaron's been improving some, but he is still an even worse hitter than everyone thinks Willy Taveras is going to be!:p:

Now that you point out that they have Harang batting .320, I took a look at the lineup they are showing there. I like what I see. They've got:

Traveras
Phillips
Bruce
Votto
Hernandez
EE
Gonzalez
Dickerson

Alot better than what they have had. Sitting in the upper deck, one could barely make out the numbers on the board.
