    The one player I am really surprised to see in there is Nix. I thought even earlier this week they were saying he was still not in great shape with his ankle injury. Should be an interesting night with this lineup.

    True, but I am guessing the Reds need to figure out if they can count on him next week. So, he plays and they see how it goes.

    No one has mentioned Nix?!? That could potentially be a big deal if he's healthy. (eta: RF did mention that...glad to see him giving it a go!)

    And I support this lineup!

    OK...I like the lineup. It's nice to see these guys getting a chance to play and have the regulars take a break. But...

    The Reds still need to keep winning. I'd rather not have to play Philadelphia in the first round if Atlanta wins the Wild Card.

    Well, you're right. I played with a guy who hit 100 points better hungover than he did sober. That's no joke...

    Speaking of Yonder, aside from looking like he'd be a fun guy to party with, Walt said something in his interview w/ Pic last night that made me say "mmm...."

    When Pic grabbed walt, his first question was how great the scene was in the locker room. Walt's reply was that he had just run across Yonder and he said he asked Yonder if he was ready for 10 more years of this, to which Yonder replied that he was good for at least 15 years. It probably means nothing, and was just an off the cuff question that Walt had for Yonder and was the first thing he thought of to react to Pic, or perhaps there is a long term approach to have both Joey & Yonder in the lineup for the future.

    At least one could hope anyways.

    Oh my goodness, this might be the post of the night and game hasn't even started! Good thing I'm alone in my office because I just laughed by head off.

    Cards won their game with Pujols, Holiday and most of their regulars on the bench.
    PJ Walters was the winning pitcher, with seven shutout innings.

    Whatever the Cards' scrubs can do, the Reds' scrubs can do better!

    I am thinking Dusty may be giving all the regulars a night off at once, and then they will play the remaining games to go after the #2 spot. Instead of sitting a couple guys at a time every game. Personally I like that strategy.

    I expected a lineup like this. I wouldn't even mind another like this tomorrow night, but I'd play the last series like it meant something and get back into a groove heading into the playoffs.

    Gonna be fun to watch the kids tonight.

    That's an epic Wii Frisbee Golf tournament that the regulars will be engaged in back in the clubhouse as the game unfolds...

    I was kinda expecting these types of lineups for September games back in May.

    What I didn't foresee was the reasoning behind it.

    Interesting that Nix is in there. We'll see if he can play LF on that ankle

    I understand and support this lineup tonight, but I wonder how the paying fans at GABP will feel?

    "Daddy, who is that Bloomquist guy? Where's Joey? Where's Jay? Where's Brandon?"

    I imagine there will be 10 or 15 thousand dissapointed fans there tonight...
