Every lineup gets bashed unless it includes all the favorite players, in which case it is declared the best lineup of the season. LOL, it's to be expected, we can't complain about anything else yet, the game hasn't begun.
Hanigan usually catches Arroyo so that's not unusual. BHamilton is not unusual since Dusty explained it yesterday.
The only unusual thing is Ludwick sitting, particularly against a lefty, in a pretty big game. Could be defense, could be injury or fatigue, could be Dusty's normal pattern, could be day game after night game.
Maybe Dusty will address it. Hard to see him sitting Ludwick today against a lefty.
If you count SF as a home game, as intended, this is road game number 81 with the Reds currently 40-40.
