    Lineup?? Can't be.

    Cairo batting 5th!

    I know Votto needs the night off, but Bruce's protection tonight is Miguel freaking Cairo!!!!!!

    Wow.

    Oh and Janish hitting 8th might be nice....

    Yeah this is going to be embarrassing. No Votto, no Rolen.

    Stubbs, OC, Cairo, Hanigan, and Janish are all playing? Are you effing kidding me? We will be lucky to score 1 run tonight.

    This should be the lineup when we trot Harrang out there to pitch since we dont stand a chance to win when he is pitching.

    did anyone see sheldons quote from dusty. said he doesnt like votto's numbers or rolen's numbers against dukes. rolen has a sore back too though apparently. sheldon also shows the career numbers vs dukes for both, votto is hittin .625 career against dukes and rolen is hitting .438. yet dusty is talking about how he doesnt like the numbers. WTF

    Rule # 1 of Bakermetrics: Don't clog the bases. All Votto and Rolen do against Dukes is clog the bases. Sit 'em down. With the lineup we have tonight I doubt there is gonna be much base-clogging going on. This is really just a test for Leake. Let's see if the rookie can make one run stand up.

    I don't know what everyone is whining about. Nothing about this lineup isn't completely consistent with Bakermetrics.

    Dave already mentioned rule 1.We all know rule 2 - SS bats 2nd, dude.

    Although there are several more basic rules, a little-known corollary of rule 1 is that thou shalt not put a base-clogging lineup behind a rookie pitcher whose confidence you profess to try to be protecting and, when possible, stick some spiritual veteran creaminess in key, run-producing spots in the lineup. Hence Miguel Cairo.

    Um, did anyone take the time to actually read Dusty's reasoning for no Votto or Rolen? Sounds like his hands were tied.

    "It’s different because we don’t have much choice,” Baker said. “We’ve got some sick guys here. You know Joey wants to face (Zach) Duke tonight with the numbers he has. Scott Rolen has numbers against Duke also.”

    Votto (flu and back issue). Rolen, Hernandez and Nix all with flu symptoms.

    It doesn't matter if Cairo hits 1st, 2nd, or 10th. Our offense will suck, and it will suck royally.
