So I guess Dusty is ok with a 0-2 ATL visit. That is one weak lineup for Hanson

Cairo batting 2nd- :eek:

If Cairo has to be in this lineup how about:

OCab
BP
JV
Bruce
Razor
Nix
Stubbs
Cairo
Leake... or put Leake higher

And Nix over Heisey? What does the kid have to do get another start? Nix hasn't played in over a week. I guess Dusty doesn't want to "lose" Heisey's bat as pinch hitter.

Man I agree with you and there is not even any hate involved. ;)

Cairo batting second, Phillips batting cleanup against a right hander, Hernandez over Hanigan who hits right handers, Nix over Heisey, Cairo over Janish. If they win today, we will know that God loves the Reds and that they have been winning by DE, divine enhancements. Can even bad relief or bad starting pitching even help this lineup :) We shall see.

Homer Bailey
05-20-2010, 12:42 PM
This lineup makes no sense. None. Should be Janish, Heisey, and Hanigan, especially against a pitcher this good.

Just when I had started to talk myself into Dusty...

I really wish Hanigan and Janish were getting starts today. Watch this lineup score like seven runs off Hanson today though just to drive us all crazy, LOL :laugh:

redsmetz
05-20-2010, 12:46 PM
LOL, I'm guessing Dusty decided we had too much of a lovefest going on at RZ and decided to mix it up a little. I can understand Nix being in there since he hasn't played in ages due to the back. It's not a match up thing because he's 0-3 against Hanson (although he's owned Tim Hudson .429 against him). Rolen being off puzzles me since he was just off the other day and did so well yesterday. I'm guessing that Cairo in front of Votto, they're hoping Cairo will get better pitches, but I'm not sure his hitting gets any better there. Has Hernandez caught most of Leake's games?

reds1869
05-20-2010, 12:49 PM

Yes, he has. I'm guessing they are comfortable with one another and that is why Ramon is getting the start today.

While I agree 100%, with Leake pitching, the lineup might matter very little.

That being said, I hope I didn't jinx him. :cool:

Rolen can take all the day games after a night game he wants. I want him fresh and he's obviously a threat off the bench. I'd like to see OC get a breather too. This a loooong stretch of games. I want to win every game but I want each player well rested for the homestand which is huge to be put some distance on the Cards.

Look for Phillips to have a big game today. He had one on the field last night. When Dad's watching, you notch it up a bit.

I hope Charlie Manuel has heard of Joey Votto. 1st base is a tough All-Star pick though. (Pujols, Howard, Gonzalez, Lee, Berkman, Fielder and some others I'm probably leaving out)

We play Philly right before the All Star break (literally, that's our last series before the break) so Charlie Manuel should be keeping up with the Reds around that time at least a little bit. And if Joey is still tearing it up by then (which he probably will be), I can imagine Charlie may want to have him on the NL team. I hope so anyway! :)

I agree Heather. Votto should be on the tip of his tongue after that series. Comes at a very good time for Joey!

Personally, I will very disappointed if he doesn't get chosen. He's in a league of his own on this team and needs to be recognized.

The problem is that the All Star team gets selected the weekend before we play in Philly. Charlie better be on top of things prior to our series with them! :p: Hopefully Joey goes on a tear during that long road trip and makes thre decision easy for him athough I can imagine him making it on the players ballot since most other teams all ready know how good he is and the NL guys especially will want another strong bat in their lineup. :thumbup:

Fay blog said that Rolen is "sore", IIRC.

HeatherC1212
05-20-2010, 01:59 PM
More from Fay:


The Reds aren’t saying what is sore on Scott Rolen. It’s believed to be a hamstring issue.

“He’s very sore,” Dusty Baker said. “He’s been tight for a couple of weeks.”

Rolen is available to pinch-hit. The injury hasn’t affected him at the plate. He’s hitting .419 with two home runs and 10 RBI over his last nine games.

There's almost always one or two players that end up not playing in the All-Star game. Votto could always end up as a replacement.

I am trying to figure it out as well. The one run was earned because it would have scored. But the 2nd run scored from second on a fielders choice to 2B (error on Cabrera). The next play was a double play that ended the inning. How was the run from 2B earned in that situation?

Edit.... They changed the box score. Now only 1 earned, as it should have been.

The Reds game is actually on the MLB.com main page (it's third blip on their little rotating image thing) and the heading is about Joey's GS giving the Reds a big cushion. I think this is one of the rare times I've actually seen them on the main page this season. :)

No, Owings is a better hitter than Leake. Leake is a good hitting pitcher, but he's not Owings.

Secondly, if Owings warms up in advance then he should be able to pinch hit, then enter the game as a pitcher. It saves a pinch hitter when swapping out pitchers. Nevertheless, at least Lincoln pitched a scoreless inning.
