    2009 Lineup

    For sake of discussion, with the current Reds roster what would your lineup be this season?

    vR:
    Taveras CF
    Dickerson LF
    Votto 1B
    Encarnacion 3B
    Bruce RF
    Hernandez C
    Gonzalez SS

    vL:
    Taveras CF
    Keppinger SS
    Votto 1B
    Phillips 2B
    Bruce RF
    Encarnacion 3B
    Gomes LF
    Hernandez C

    I think Hairston will find his way into the lineup against lefties a lot in some fashion as well. Ideally WillyT wouldn't be leading off, but I'm not even going to bother to ask that to happen.

    Re: 2009 Lineup

    My roster? Do I need to be realistic (i.e. play Willy Taveras)?

    I tried my best to be semi realistic. I'd have Dickerson playing CF and WillyT on the bench if it was up to me.

    Okay. I'll be realistic with the lineup but not the order:

    vR:
    LF Dickerson
    3B Encarnacion
    1B Votto
    RF Bruce
    SS Gonzalez
    C Hernandez
    2B Phillips
    CF Taveras

    vL
    SS Keppinger
    2B Phillips
    1B Votto
    3B Encarnacion
    LF Gomes
    C Hernandez
    RF Bruce
    CF Taveras

    Why don't we assume Corey Tavaras is leading off and playing CF and Adam Dunn isn't coming back so we don't have another thread debating the pros and cons of those players.
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.

    Taveras CF (sigh)
    AGon SS
    Votto 1B
    Phillips 2B
    Bruce RF
    EE 3B (a crime, but I expect it)
    Gomes LF
    Hernandez C
    P

    I loathe but fully expect this to be the OD lineup.

    Are we going without a second baseman vs. right-handers?

    I think Dusty has some man-love for the guy. I expect him to have 300+ PA this year.

    Just a hunch.
