    Laynce Nix is a terror to Felipe Paulino

    Batting .556 against him.

    Bruce has 2 homers and Votto one.

    Kudos to Dusty for getting Nix in the lineup tonight

    Can one make the argument that the two out machines at the top of the lineup actually helps the team since their doing it together instead of in the middle of a productive inning?

    Unless you wanna play the small sample size Nix at 2 in the order. Glad to see Dusty giving this more than 1 day trial.

    We won last night, dude. If we lost, it would have been vindication of Dusty's same old lineup.

    Re: 4-28-10 Reds v Astros

    My biggest beef with this line-up is no Hanigan. The kid is on a tear right now and should be batting at the top of the line-up. I honestly think I'd go,

    Hanigan
    Rolen
    Votto
    Bruce
    Nix
    Phillips
    Cabrera
    Stubbs

    I know Dusty would never buy it, but I think it would be effective.

    My 6-year-old daughter and I will be heading out shortly for Minute Maid. Hopefully she'll snag a few autographs during BP. Fantastic seats for tonight's game, row 1 seats 1&2 right next to the Reds dugout...best seats I've ever had at a game.

    Can't wait to see Leake. Gorgeous weather here today...I'd be shocked if they closed the roof.

    Whoever does the PBP...bring us some good luck.

    I'm fully on board with THIS lineup. :O) Nix gets a pass due to his Paulino mastery. Otherwise...a thing of beauty.

    where to begin?
    1. i have no problem giving Nix some starts against RHP. However, if Nix is going to play LF then DICKERSON should be in CF.
    2. Hanigan > Hernandez
    3. Janish > Cabrera

    My lineup would have been:
    8 Dickerson (L)
    2 Hanigan
    3 Votto (L)
    5 Rolen
    9 Bruce (L)
    4 Phillips
    7 Nix (L)
    6 Janish
    1 Leake
    .

    I think I like your line-up better than mine

    Stubbs singles to start the game, and then steals second.
