    3/10 - Reds v. Yankees

    Here's the lineup from Marc's blog...Stinnett batting 3rd for the Yanks???

    Jaywalkers' Row

    SARASOTA -- Honestly, what follows is the actual Yankees starting lineup for today's game. They don't even have a split-squad. So much for bringing four regulars to spring training games. WBC or not, this is pretty ridiculous.

    Yankees
    Kevin Reese LF
    Miguel Cairo 2B
    Kelly Stinnett C
    Mitch Jones DH
    Melky Cabrera CF
    Eric Duncan 1B
    Russ Johnson 3B
    Felix Escalona SS
    Kevin Thompson RF
    Mike Mussina P

    Reds
    Ryan Freel 2B
    Felipe Lopez SS
    Scott Hatteberg 1B
    Adam Dunn LF
    Rich Aurilia 3B
    Tuffy Rhodes DH
    Austin Kearns RF
    Jason LaRue C
    Chris Denorfia CF
    Phil Dumatrait P

    Quote of the day honors go to Dunn, upon seeing the Reds' lineup card.

    Guess Steinbrenner can be as passive aggressive as the next guy...

    Props to Dunn. Fantastic quote.

    Adam should have played in the WBC... he's not getting much work at 1B.

    I think he would have gotten more time at 1B had WMP not played in the WBC.

    Which sitting in the WBC isn't doing WMP any good either.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Good point. There's no reason today that Dunn couldn't play 1B, Hatteberg DH and Tuffy in the OF.

    can someone tell me why Hatteberg is hitting 3rd and Kearns 7th?

    Dunn has taken to calling him the "Dominican Babe Ruth".

    I almost laughed when I saw Stinnett batting third for the Yankees, but then I noticed the third spot on the reds lineup.

    Yankees get a bomb from noted slugger Felix Escalona to take a 1-0 lead after two innings. Phil Dumatrait gives up three hits in those two frames.

    So far Dunn is prophetic...without EE, no offense as of yet.

    Reds score three in their half of the fourth. 3-1. Yankees then get one back in the top of the fifth. 3-2.
