    Lineups are really early today. That's the earliest I remember for a 7:10 game. I think I would be playing Ludwick right now. He has been hitting the ball well lately and you had better ride that horse while he's hot. If Bruce gets on one his torrid hot streaks that will keep the Reds close and maybe even vault them into the playoffs. One can dream can't he?

    Ludwick probably can't play effectively every day. Dusty rested him very often, once every series pretty much. Never really explained. But now, with his injury last year and a bit older, just have to get used to Ryan sitting more frequently than most starting players.

    As for Bruce, just reading between the lines, hitting him second was a signal to Jay. Stop trying to hit a six run homer. Just hit the ball solidly and be part of the offense.

    And as we saw yesterday, when he's making good contact the ball will leave the yard sooner or later.

    Can we start warming up Jumbo in the first (just in case)?

    I like Heisey more than anyone on here.....but unless Luddy is dinged up or something I'd have him in LF

    I like this lineup and glad Negron is getting the start over Skip

    I kinda dig that lineup.

    On Ludwick, my guess would be that they are still hoping to move him this month, and want to lessen the risk of overexposure and injury. It's just a guess, but it could explain why his already sporadic playing time due to age/health, has become even more sporadic.

    I'm just shocked Skip is not starting in 2 consecutive games

    The less I see of Heisey the better I feel.

    0-0 after 1.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    May be a long day for the offense. Salazar is attacking the strike zone and not afraid
