    4/15/09 - Reds vs. Brewers

    Lineups from Fay:

    Reds (standard v. RHP):

    Willy Taveras cf
    Chris Dickerson lf
    Joey Votto 1b
    Brandon Phillips 2b
    Jay Bruce rf
    Edwin Encarnacion 3b
    Ramon Hernandez c
    Alex Gonzalez ss
    Micah Owings p

    Brewers:

    Rickie Weeks 2b
    Corey Hart rf
    Ryan Braun lf
    Prince Fielder 1b
    JJ Hardy ss
    Mike Cameron cf
    Bill Hall 3b
    Jason Kendall c
    Braden Looper rhp

    Sometimes it's not who you play, it's when you play them. The Brewers are struggling. Braun is hitting .200, Fielder .179. Overall, the Brew Crew is hitting .217, worst in the National League. The Reds are second worse at .222. Walks have really helped the Reds. They're third in the NL. That has their on-base percentage eighth at .342.

    Brandon "I'm a hitter" Phillips has seven walks. Phillips (.433), Taveras (.409), Votto (.452), Encarnacion (.448) and Dickerson (.500) all have OBP of over .400.

    Maybe with Owings behind him Gonzalez will get off .000 tonight.

    I hope Micah hits a home run.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    That would be great! But better yet, I hope he pitches as well as he did in Spring Training!

    I was hoping for a 5-5 road trip, a win tonight and I'm expecting 6-4. I really expect a split with the Stros and lose 2 of 3 at Wrigley, although the Reds did play the Cubs pretty tough last season.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    Dusty forgot to find the inner Ed Barrow within him. Barrow figured out that it was ok to bat his pitcher somewhere other than 9th.

    Chat....it is open.

    2 quick outs in the first.

    Reds go in order in the first with Votto striking out.

    Where is everyone? I'm not prepared to carry both the game thread and chat tonight.

    I don't expect much tonight. Braden Looper is nothing special, but he's owned the Reds since moving into the rotation.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Braun lines a hit past a diving EE for a double. Runners on 2nd and 3rd with 1 out.

    Prince Fielder up now.

    Lines a shot right at Taveras who makes the out. Runner tags from 3rd to score. 1-0 Brewers. Braun holds at 2nd.
