Hi, Phillies fan here. Congrats on making it back to the postseason, this should be a fun series.
I'm not here to troll, just here to have a good mature discussion about the series.
Any questions you guys have about the Phils just fire away.
What is the Reds lineup going to look like for game 1 against Doc?
Ruiz got hit hard in the elbow today but will probably be ok for game 1. Not sure if Manuel will lead off Rollins because he is still rusty but our 8 barring injuries will stay the same the entire series as we don't platoon left vs right etc.,,
Starters will be Doc,Oswalt,Cole,Doc,Oswalt
The pen will probably be limited to 4 pitchers Manuel really trusts. Durbin & Contreras for middle relief. Madson and Lidge for the 8th and 9th with normal starter Blanton getting some limited action. The rest of our bullpen is pretty bad and probably won't see much time unless there is a blowout.
