    3/31/10- Reds v. A's "5th starter day" (ST) (700)

    Leake will go 5, followed by 2 from Chapman, and Wood will throw 5 tonight in Vegas. The Reds lineup for the afternoon game which I should be able to do some PBP for:

    Drew Stubbs 8
    Chris Burke 5
    Wladimir Balentien 7
    Scott Rolen dh
    Laynce Nix 9
    Ramon Hernandez 2
    Miguel Cairo 3
    Paul Janish 6
    Aaron Miles 4
    Mike Leake 1

    Leake- 5
    Chapman- 2
    Owings- 2

    Interesting that the defense for Leake only features 2 regulars.

    Yup. Altho I think Dusty was trying to use the Vegas trip as a gift to his vets, so that may be a reason as well.

    I was thinking the other way, maybe Scott Rolen doesn't like the whole vegas thing, but I'd be annoyed to be left home while everyone else gets to go out an play. I'm guessing they're not going to judge him by stats alone, but by how he's throwing the ball.

    Apparently the game tonight is on FSN. I was unaware.

    Pitching coach will be at both games, presumably to better gauge each starting pitcher and make the final call on the 5th rotation spot. (1st part was mentioned on 700, second part was my assumption or perhaps he just wants to party in Vegas

    Sorry I missed the 1st 2 outs. Apparently the 1st 2 men are out, and Wlad is now up.
    Gameday once again not working.

    Wlad beats out an infield single to Rosales.

    Two up, two quick outs for the A's against Leake. A fly ball to LF and a ground out.

    Now a ground out to 1b.

    Three up three down for Leake and the Reds.

    0-0 after 1.

    I think Dusty had little say on who went on the Vegas trip as that game is a "marketing" event for MLB. I'm sure sending the veterans was highly encourage, if not directed.

    Anyone know if the travel squad for tonight is posted anywhere? CTR would occasionally post that kind of thing, but he came back to Cincy today.

    Leake retires the first A's batter in the second.

    Second hitter in the second flies out.

    Two up, two down in the Oakland 2nd so far.

    Travis Buck singles to CF. First hit and first baserunner for Oakland.
