    3/21/08 Reds vs. Pirates


    Reds

    vs.


    Pirates

    Lineup via Trent:

    Today's lineup for the Reds:
    Corey Patterson cf
    Jeff Keppinger ss
    Ken Griffey Jr. rf
    Brandon Phillips 2b
    Adam Dunn lf
    Edwin Encarnacion 3b
    Joey Votto 1b
    Javier Valentin c
    Aaron Harang p

    This very well could be your Opening Day lineup.

    Other pitchers on the trip:
    Bill Bray
    Jim Brower
    Todd Coffey
    Francisco Cordero
    Jon Coutlangus
    Mike Lincoln
    Gary Majewski
    Mike Stanton
    David Weathers

    * Tom Shearn has fans everywhere. Shearn, who was reassigned to minor league camp yesterday, was one of last year's great stories, but I didn't realize it was as great as it is. I saw a car yesterday with the license plate "ILVSHRN" -- I tried to get a picture of it, but I was driving and, well, you couldn't see it.

    Man that's a lot of chaff they are still carrying in terms of bullpen arms.

    I would be comfortable with that as the Opening Day line-up, by the way.

    Is it carrying chaff or is it doing one of the things that ST is designed to do, winnowing the chaff from the wheat?

    A scoreless two innings by Brower, let's say, could make him the wheat and Coutlangus not being able to get an out, let's say, could make him the chaff.

    The reverse could happen.

    Or Coutlangus throwing a perfect inning and Stanton, for example, getting bombed could help management decide the next (LH, in this example) bull pen cut.

    Opening day is not tomorrow.

    Sharon is probably concerned by her husband's professed love for a minor league RHPer.

    I consider Brower chaff, regardless. Lincoln too. A few scoreless innings from either of them won't change my mind on that.

    Thom B:

    "Why do the Reds play the Pirates so much in the spring?"
    Um, just musing here Thom, but is it because their camps are 10 miles from each other? Just a thought.

    Votto and EE both with hits. Good to see.

    They'll have better spring competition when they move to Arizona....

    Nice to see an extra base hit from someone not named Andy Green.

    Votto 2 for 2 with 2 doubles off a lefty.

    That is all.

    Griffey goes against it for a double.

    I was pulled away from the computer for work stuff...how did the Reds get to their five runs? Mostly looking for an idea if anyone in particular had a big hit or two.

    Nice to hear on Votto.
