Ludwick starting is a good call.
Also, good idea to break up the lefties against Liniaro and the Pitt pen.
I guess I don't think juggling the lineup makes that much of a difference, particularly in one game.. Dusty put the best 8 guys out there, although I guess we could debate Hannigan/Mes.. At this point, I say start Hannigan because that's who Cueto is the most comfortable with.
Hanigan is the right call behind the plate tonight.
Ryan's hitting isn't very good at this point, but Reds can't have defensive mishaps behind the plate tonight.
