    9/1/09 - Reds vs. Pirates

    I'm pretty sure this lineup proves that Dusty pre-orders his lineup cards with the position set and just pencils the names in accordingly. Kevin Barker is seriously our clean-up hitter, in front of Rolen and Gomes? SERIOUSLY?

    Stubbs CF
    Janish SS
    Phillips 2B
    Barker 1B
    Rolen 3B
    Gomes RF
    Balentien LF
    Tatum C
    Lehr P


    And the Buccos:
    McCutchen CF
    Young 2B
    Jones RF
    Doumit C
    Pearce 1B
    Milledge LF
    LaRoche 3B
    Cedeno SS
    Morton P
    "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."

    Barker's a lefty, breaking up the RHs Phillips/Rolen/Gomes.

    I know he's a rook, but Barker's put up some VERY nice power numbers this year between here and L'ville.

    .417 ba / .500 slg / .917 ops with the Reds (VERY limited playing time)
    .285 ba / .551 slg / .927 ops with the Bats (350 ab's)

    It's not as bad as you'd think.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    If the lineup card was pre-ordered, wouldn't Barker be hitting third?

    I like the looks of some of these young Pirates. Jones singles softly past Phillips.

    Doumit lines a single to center. Lehr having some trouble early.

    Votto should be worried about Barker pulling a Wally Pip. ;-)

    Pearce flies to Stubbs a few feet short of the track. Lehr wasn't fooling anyone that inning.

    Morton is the kid Atlanta got for McClouth. Stubbs grounds to third.

    Brandon "the wrist" Phillips chasing 100 RBI's doubles to deep right center.

    Something must happen to fielders in GABP. Right CF seems to give fielders a hard time.
