    Lose Saturday, tank Sunday?

    If the Reds lose today, then Sunday's game is meaningless for both the Reds and Pirates. In that case, what lineup will Dusty trot out on the field for Fan Appreciation Day? My guess is this:

    1. Hamilton CF
    2. Robinson LF
    3. Paul RF
    4. Mesoraco C
    5. Rodriguez 3B
    6. Soto 1B
    7. Hanahanahanahan 2B
    8. Izturis SS
    9. Curtis Partch

    Meanwhile, Bruce and Choo will be in the cage learning how to hit from the right side.

    EDIT: Yes, this is my attempt at a reverse jinx.

    I would expect that Corky would be catching. With Mes having had the hamstring issue recently, I think they would want to rest him to give that time to heal or at least avoid hurting it more.

    I suspect you'd treat it like a spring training game. Start the regulars, give each a couple ABs, then get them out. I'm sure they'd start Reynolds though followed by Christiani, Partch, etc.

    Sometimes the rest can be poisonous for players.

    Can't get much worse than they are on offense recently.

    Dusty will finally use the lineup he should have been using. Votto in the 2 hole.

    I'd think Reynolds would pitch tomorrow.

    Sunday's lineup:

    Robinson- CF
    H Rodriguez- 2B
    Heisey- RF
    X Paul- LF
    Soto- 1B
    Hannahan- 3B
    Izturis- SS
    Corky- C
    Reynolds- SP

    B
    B
    RH
    LH
    RH
    LH
    B
    RH

    Good balance for a meaningless game. I would use Partch, Christiani, Cingrani (to see what he has) Ondrusek and Duke tomorrow. Maybe Leake as well.

    I wouldn't play Billy, do not let the Pirates get an even better look at him

    Geez. Reading your lineup reminds me we have way too many who hit way too little on this team. Guessing that'll change some for the better for Tuesday and any postseason beyond it.

    After the last five days, how would you even tell if they're tanking?
