    I don't think it's a terrible lineup. I just wish Heisey was playing. He's batting .400 against righties in 55 ABs, and he is hitting .333 in his last 10 games. The only positive about Nix is that he's hitting .357 in his last 10, and he's left-handed. But Nix isn't very strong against righties (.261 in 119 ABs.)

    In games he starts against RHP Nix has this line: .292/.333/.478/.811. It is hard to include his pinch-hitting numbers in there because that is such a tough job (for everyone not named Chris Heisey).

    C'mon Dusty....NIX? I swear that Baker is like the most immitator of LaRussa around. But I will give him this: He will walk Albert 5 times if situations allow!

    Somebody said that Jim was 3 0f 9 vs Carp, ergo he will feast on him. Small sample size I think. I think that Jim goes 1 for 5 with 2 strikeouts. But whatever happens, what an exiting series this will be. I'm starting to booze it up now to calm my nerves!

    Career batting averages against Carpenter:

    Phillips - 5 for 26 - .192
    Nix - 2 for 12 - .167, 1 HR
    Votto - 6 for 15 - .400, 1 HR
    Rolen - 5 for 19 - .263, 1 HR
    Edmunds - 7 for 20 - .350
    Bruce - 3 for 16 - .188
    Hernandez - 4 for 28 - .143
    Janish - 4 for 7 - .571, 2 HR's, 1 triple, 1 double - Just kidding.....never had an at-bat
    Leake - 0 at-bats

    Bench:
    Cairo - 4 for 15 - .267
    Dickerson - 8 for 12 - .666, 5 HR's..........just kidding, 5 -13, 5 singles, .385
    Gomes - 0-7, 5 K's......guess we know why he's not starting tonight
    Hanigan - 1-8 - .125
    Stubbs - 2-9 - .222

    Got no problem with the lineup. I realize the reason behind putting all the lefties in against Carpenter, but I just think Heisey might have been just as good as Bruce because Carpenter has never faced him, and vice versa.

    If Edmonds comes to the plate 5 times tonight I like our chances of winning.

    Edmunds has sat and watched Carpenter for years, and sometimes facing an old teammate gives you extra incentive.

    Might want to save some of that for later when Cordero comes into the game.

    OR.......it might be better if you're passed out for that moment.

    That Jim Edmonds is some kind of man-candy!

    There! I beat Brantley to it!

    He really is. Not many guys can take a year off then come back and do what he's been doing. It speaks highly of his conditioning and natural talents. That's why he's a future Hall of Famer.

    On my way to the game. I didn't think I could be more excited until Edmonds arrival into the lineup. I'll be the guy in the ugly green tie in the suite next to Bob C.
