    2006 Opening Day Lineup guesses

    I am nowhere near as hardcore of a Reds fan as many here, but in looking at our roster, from an offensive standpoint, we are stacked!

    MY guess:


    Freel 2B
    Lopez SS
    Griffey CF
    Dunn 1B
    Pena LF
    Kearns RF
    EE 3B
    LaRue C


    If EE comes around this year and Lopez continues where he left off, they could be "Big Red Machine"scary on offense.

    Pitching on the other hand...

    edit: after looking at the depth chart on cr.com I guess I'm not really going out on a limb that much other than Freel over Womack at 2B.

    Question though... Why/How on earth is Womack above Freel?!

    This is probably pretty close to the ideal lineup. Which means we will likely never see it, except for maybe 5-10 games sprinkled throughout the season.

    I think you should lose 1000 posts for that one!

    Re: 2006 Opening Day Lineup guesses

    my guess:
    lopez
    aurilla
    griffey
    dunn
    Pena
    EdE
    Kearns
    LaRue
    Milton
    yes, milton opening the season. They have to try and turn around his image so if he ends up being half way decent in the spring i don't see why they wouldn't start him. I don't want to see it but it's what I think will happen.

    Re: 2006 Opening Day Lineup guesses

    I have no clue what Narron WILL do.

    Here's what I'd do:

    1. Freel 2B
    2. EddieE 3B
    3. Dunn 1B
    4. Junior CF
    5. Kearns RF
    6. Lopez SS
    7. WMP LF
    8. LaRue C

    I just like the idea of getting EddieE into the mix early and often. Lou did it with AROD in Seattle.

    Like Raisor; I'd put Kearns higher if he had shown better performance last year. But he hasn't. Also, I like Encarnacion at #2. This would certainly be a challenge and give him some good pitches to hit instead of being burried at #8.
