    Do you guys think Jay Bruce plays on monday night (tommorrow)?

    Jay Bruce's (bruised right hand) was doing OK this morning. His handshake was pretty firm so he wasn't favoring it. But he won't hit today -- just running and throwing. He was available to pinch-run and play defense.

    "It's so much better than it was," Bruce said. "It didn't even bother me until the check swing and that was two days ago. When I went for the X-rays and the other stuff yesterday, it was so hard for me to believe it could have been broken. I had played without pain and that one check swing made me feel it."
    Jay Bruce (sore right hand) is hoping to play tomorrow. Dusty Baker thinks it will probably be Tuesday in Chicago.

    "It's much better," Bruce said. "I'll be fine in no time. I'll definitely be ready for Chicago, barring something unforeseen. I'm hoping for tomorrow. But it's Dusty's call. It's early in the season. I don't want to rush it."

    What do you guys think? Dusty needs to let him play tomorrow. Let him get out there and get in a groove for goodness sakes.

    Reds will be facing a lefty in Hampton.My guess would be that he'll sit one more night.

    no reason to rush, definitely no reason to play him against a lefty.

    I'd send him to triple A and let Bailey pitch to him. After he cranks a few out, his confidence will be back quickly.
    Who's on first?

    No Jay tomorrow against a lefty, which I think is the right call. Darnell McDonald should start - he has more base hits this season than Jay anyway.

    Yep, what was already stated. Tomorrow would be a good opportunity to give one of the bench guys a start.

    It looks like Ramon Hernandez and Alex Gonzalez are getting a break today, which is seems like a very good idea. Ryan Hanigan and Paul Janish are in the lineup tonight, as is Darnell McDonald in right field.

    Reds lineup:

    Taveras, cf
    Hairston, lf
    Votto, 1b
    Phillips, 2b
    Encarnacion, 3b
    Mcdonald, rf
    Hanigan, c
    Janish, ss
    Arroyo, rhp

    I am liking that lineup more and more, even though Janish can't hit either. Hernandez is picking it up but Hanigan has earned a start or two each week. McDonald has had some hits, but I still dont understand why we dont have Gomes up here.

    He's hurt. Take it easy. Would you rather him be out for 3-4 games or be put on the 15 day DL?

    Do not rush Bruce back. Call up Gomes if need be. The season is young, there's no need to wreck our future.

    Really? Why?

    That lineup might be one of the most threatless in all of baseball. Rivals the lineup we sent out the night Randy Johnson K'd 20 Reds.

    I'm starting to think that Jay Bruce may end up on the DL. I can see it still hurting today or tomorrow and them putting him on the DL. Seems like they've backtracked a bit from "He'll definitely be back in Chicago" talk.

    Bruce (hand) hopes to play tomorrow. "That's the plan. I can't say definitely. But that's the goal." He's going to hit off a T today
