    3/22 game thread Reds v Twins night game

    Happy birthday President Washington, I'm guessing that Fox Sports Ohio is not celebrating this lineup for tonight. Think many people will tune out after the first inning? No Griff, No Dunn, No EE and Milton on the mound. At least Freel's at 2nd leading off. I'm sure that makes some happy. Of course that Aurilia, Cruz 3-4 combo in the middle of the order might just make some people's eyes roll. Gotta love spring training road games.

    From Marc's blog...

    SARASOTA -- Before I head out the door...

    Reds
    Ryan Freel 2B
    Dewayne Wise CF
    Rich Aurilia SS
    Jacob Cruz DH
    Austin Kearns RF
    Jason LaRue C
    Andy Abad 1B
    Frank Menechino 3B
    Matt Kata LF
    Eric Milton P

    Twins
    Shannon Stewart LF
    Luis Castillo 2B
    Joe Mauer C
    Rondell White DH
    Torii Hunter CF
    Justin Morneau 1B
    Tony Batista 3B
    Lew Ford RF
    Jason Bartlett SS
    Scott Baker P

    Also, Dave Ross is expected to be in uniform tonight. He's inherited the 54 jersey from Luke Hudson, apparently.

    Edited to include the Twinkies lineup.

    Well, my enthusiasm for watching tonight's game just dropped about three levels.



    Oh well...Saturday's game is on and we'll get to see the debut of Bronson Arroyo.

    Since it's his birthday, I thought maybe he'd cross the Delaware one last time to take out Milton.

    Any reference to Eric Milton with George Washington has to involve Valley Forge.

    Well, they managed to get 4 second baseman into the game.

    Glad to see Sadaharu Oh's son, Kata-hairy Oh in the game.

    Are they providing some showcasing ABs for LaRue? Had to present the thought.

    I wouldn't think so, where else would you bat him in that lineup?

    Because in February, he had a birthday, and we here at RedsZone.com are all sheep when it comes to game threads and don't do any exact research.

    Kinda like Peter Gammons -
