    Is that really our lineup

    Wow...is that really our lineup tonight.

    We may get a win, I dont know, but Im not so sure that is a lineup that gets you to the playoffs.

    Phillips
    Cabrera
    Votto
    NIX
    Bruce
    Hernandez
    Stubbs
    Janish

    And some of you guys dont think we needed Matthews, nor do we need to part with some of our minor leaguers in order to get a bat?

    I guess Heisey will never get to play. I'd like to see Janish at SS and Cairo at 3rd

    Nix sucks and Matthews sucks. Nix shouldn't start no matter who is pitching. Heisey should get a start and Nix should get DFA'ed once Dickerson is ready, which he probably is now in reality.

    Where are you getting this lineup 3 hours before game time? NVM I see it's on the website now.

    Nix is in because he went 2 for 3 earlier in the year against Oswalt with a triple. Janish is starting because in a game last year he went 2 for 4 in a game with 2 doubles..

    What is wrong with that line-up? Its who we've got right now. Rolen is out so Janish or Cairo will start. Nix in for Gomes for a game. I don't see the big deal.

    I would've put Bruce ahead of Nix but other than that, it looks good.

    Wow, three lefties in a row? He should at least throw Hernandez in between them or something. Nix has no business hitting clean up ever, I don't care what he did against Oswalt earlier in the year.

    Re: Is that really our lineup

    I'd complain about Nix but I almost feel like he's getting this opportunity to save his job, and somehow he'll come through with a HR today, meaning we'll be stuck with another month of no production until he's on the chopping block again and the process repeats itself.

    I'm torn. I want him to do well so that we can get a big win and take the lead in the Central again, but at the same time I want him to go 0-5 so we can finally purge him from the 25-man roster.

    OCab is batting second because he's a leader.

    Re: Is that really our lineup

    I'd move Nix down a couple of spots, both other than that I don't have a huge problem with it. I'd probably rather see Heisey over Nix, but I do see the argument that Nix has hit Oswalt this year too.

    Re: Is that really our lineup

    Is it really necessary to have "this is our lineup?" threads everyday? Why don't we trust Baker to make the lineups. No matter what stats any of us want to look up, he knows a whole hell of a lot more than anyone on here in terms of batter vs. pitcher matchups.

    He can only field the players that are healthy. His lineups have produced the #1 offense in the league. I think it's about time we just let him do his job.
