    Opening Day lineup is out

    Patterson, CF

    Keppinger, SS

    Griffey, RF

    Phillips, 2B

    Dunn, LF

    Encarnacion, 3B

    Hatteberg, 1B

    Valentin, C

    Harang, RHP
    Don't like Hatteberg playing instead of Votto but he did have a good spring so maybe it's the best choice. I guess we'll find out tomorrow though.

    I really thought Votto would be the first basemen come opening day.

    Its not like Hatte is a bad player, so it isn't the worst thing in the world. And Baker still speaks highly of Votto.

    I like it Votto will get plenty of chances to prove himself as it is a long season

    Patterson beat out Freel when Dusty signed.

    The only way Freel would start is if Patterson didn't and it seems Cory is a favorite of Baker from the Cubbie days.

    I'm just happy that Castro isn't starting. That was my worst nightmare before today.

    If I was still manager I wouldn't have had a lineup like that.

    Maybe not but Narron would've pinch hit Juan Castro for Adam Dunn with the bases loaded in the 9th inning.

    He's clutch.

    We don't want Dunn drawing a walk in that situation!

    the lineup doesn't look that bad to me, the only thing i wouldve changed is votto playing instead of hatteberg, but i see the reasoning behind starting hatteberg instead. no complaints here so far.

    As much as I dislike Patterson leading off, I can understand it and am willing to give him a shot.

    I also like Hatteberg starting. He's a veteran who had a good year last year and a much better spring then Votto whom he was competing against. Votto isn't up on this club to sit on the bench so I'm sure he'll get plenty of time.

    Dunn batting 5th is what drives me nuts.
