    8-9-10 Reds vs. Cardinals (1st Edmonds game)

    Brandon Phillips 2b
    Laynce Nix lf
    Joey Votto 1b
    Scott Rolen 3b
    Jim Edmonds cf
    Jay Bruce rf
    Ramon Hernandez c
    Paul Janish ss
    Mike Leake p


    vs. Chris Carpenter

    Really solid defensive lineup. I'm surprised by the Nix in the 2 hole move. I LOVE the infield defense for Leake. I think it'll really improve his chances.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    If Edmonds can run on his Achilles at all, that OF D is pretty solid as well.

    Three CF playing out there. (Though Bruce hasn't played CF in a couple years.)

    Okay, now I want Heisey in CF, and Edmonds in LF or RF some until Bruce/Gomes get things straightened out.

    Jay Bruce's AB's are going to get even more high-leverage.

    Not only back to back lefties, but back to back lefties 2 times in the lineup.

    Am I the only one wondering how long it is until we have Edgar Renteria batting 2nd?

    HA! I was thinking the same thing....should've kept Aaron Miles!

    I'm taking some pepto before I try to root for Edmonds tonight....he'll be the most despised Red for me since Terry F'ing Pendleton stopped by for a brief stay

    Chat is open early tonight. Free George Grande bobbleheads for the first 25 in attendance.

    I haven't been this excited over a regular season game since well...1999. We're due. Let's get it done tonight.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I'm DVR'ing the game since I'm still at work, but just wanted to chime in and say that I do hope the crowd is huge (even though it's a weekday series) this series and helps the boys out. I so desperately want to take 2 of 3 in this series and, just as much, want to beat Carpenter.

    Go get'em, Fellas!!!

    It's pretty surreal seeing Rolen and Edmonds in our lineup.



    But I like it.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
