    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009

    That looks like the new "Murderers Row" to me.

    I am very intersted to see how patterson fairs today. Another intruiging thing is to see Jay hit third. That could be his future spot in the lineup. Atleast he has some good protectiona round him with encarnacion.

    I have to give you credit for trying to find a positive

    I honestly wonder if a more impotent lineup has ever been written on a lineup card in Reds ST history
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    Time for a mini-retraction, I didn't realize this was a SS game

    I thought it was the JV game. Reds laid a goose egg last night with their regular lineup, is it possible to score negative runs with this one? Brings back to mind the good old days of Bob Boone's "Sunday Specials"

    i've seen worse lineups ran out their on sundays by the three stooges boone, narron and miley. Plus it's split squad today so there's not a whole lot of choices.

    That should be the truth - but I'm sure you've seen Baker's comments on BP, that "he should bat third someday".

    You know, you don't want your #3 hitter clogging up the bases...

    Unfortunately EE, although probably the best contact and power hitter not named Adam Dunn on the team, will be relegated to the 6 spot in the present and future - unless we dont' keep Dunn.

    2009 lineup:

    Patterson
    Gonzalez
    BP
    JB
    EE
    Votto
    Some really crappy Left Fielder
    Some really crappy Catcher


    UGH!

    Chris Kroski at the plate! The pitch..........he swings and misses. The pitcher really had Chris crossed on that pitch.

    His parents should be shot for that name.

    Hey, anything with Bruce in it is murderers row.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Re: Corey Patterson gets in his first lineup today...

    Unfortunately, "Murderers Row" didn't fare so well against Dontrelle. Nasty Left-Handers are going to (continue to) eat us alive.

    For all the things Bruce and Votto will bring to the Reds in the future, looks like hitting Left Handers should not be one we look for.

    This only re-emphasizes the need for a RH power bat.

    FWIW, EE didn't have any success against D-Train either... That Murderers Row was a combined 0-8 with 3 K's (tho not sure if they were all against DW).

    per Fay, 3/13:

    "Reds v. Phillies lineup

    7:05, no radio.

    Corey Patterson CF
    Juan Castro SS
    Ken Griffey Jr. RF
    Brandon Phillips 2 B
    Adam Dunn LF
    Edwin Encarnacion 3B
    Joey Votto 1B
    Paul Bako C
    Chris Dickerson DH

    Jeremy Affeldt P, followed by Mike Stanton, Jim Brower, Gary Majewski and Scott Sauerbeck."



    Still looking for an indication that we're going to bat Patterson 7th.

    Hope it's sinking in for you doubters. Kinda like a sickness, you just have to face up and accept it, no matter how much it nauseates you.

    This looks like our opening day lineup - at least 1-7. Replace Bako with Ross/Valentin.

    Juan Castro will not be the Opening Day SS.

    I wouldn't bet against it.

    He definitely wouldn't clog the bases, that's for sure.

    Keppinger has an inside shot, but I don't think Dusty likes his Defense as much. Janish had some early looks/promise, but I think Dusty goes the "proven but crappy veteran" whenever in doubt...
