    Game Thread - 2/28/06 vs. Kia Tigers

    Never too early to get that first game thread of the spring up, eh?

    Reds are playing the Kia Tigers tomorrow after and according to Marc's blog, the lineup is as follows:


    It's baaaaack...

    SARASOTA -- Look, I understand what made this blog famous, back in the day. I know it wasn't my finely crafted prose or insightful restaurant reviews. So now, we're returning to our roots here. I have for you -- a day ahead of time! -- the first Reds starting lineup of the spring. No, really, no need to thank me. Just soak it all in, starting with a center fielder wearing No. 30...

    Reds vs. Kia Tigers, Feb. 28, Ed Smith Stadium

    Quinton McCracken, CF
    Chris Denorfia, RF
    Jason LaRue, C
    Tuffy Rhodes, DH
    Jacob Cruz, 1B
    Frank Menechino, 2B
    Earl Snyder, 3B
    Ray Olmedo, SS
    DeWayne Wise, LF
    Dave Williams, P


    Other pitchers slated to be available tomorrow: Matt Belisle, Todd Coffey, Jason Standridge, Mike Burns, Travis Chick, Tommy Phelps, Josh Hall and Jake Robbins.

    Oddly enough, one of the pitchers slated to throw for Kia is Seth Greisinger, the right-hander the Detroit Tigers made the sixth overall pick in the 1996 draft. He's got a 5.51 ERA in 42 big-league appearances.

    Other upcoming roster notes:

    # Ken Griffey Jr. is expected to play in Wednesday's intrasquad game
    # In addition to the previously announced Brandon Claussen, Luke Hudson will be the other starter in the intrasquad game
    # Justin Germano will start Friday's split-squad home game against the Tigers, while Michael Gosling will get the ball Friday at the Twins. Homer Bailey also is scheduled to travel to Fort Myers.



    Looks like we are sending out an All Star lineup for this one, a Bob Boone Sunday special perhaps.

    And this has to be one of the earliest game threads ever in line with one of the earliest lineup releases ever. Will this game be broadcast locally (like 700 has done for early games in the past) or will we just be in suspense until an update from one of the writers or a poster?

    Boy, I hope you wrote this with a tongue-in-cheek so hard you have a hole in your cheek.

    No radio till Thursday - although I'd give my left one to hear Joe pronounce those Korean names.

    Along with a hefty dose of knows-how-to-win-ness, with a dash of plays-the-game-the-right-way-ness.

    Is there going to be any way to follow this game online since there's no radio broadcast? Does MLB.com run the Gameday thing with stats and such for spring training games?

    Tounge in cheek??? Not at all, I'm just excited about the veteran lineup we are putting on the field.

    This looks like the All BadFundamentals team.
