    Nix and Hanigan starting game 2, Wood possible to start for game 4

    From Fay today:

    http://cincinnati.com/blogs/reds/201...y-start-game-4

    Nix and Hanigan will definitely start tomorrow night and Dusty is considering starting Wood if there is a game 4.

    As long as Nix is in LF, not CF, I'm OK with that.

    Haha, I didn't even consider that possibility until you said something. Thanks for letting that thought enter into my mind :thumbdown

    Any ways, what does everyone think the line-up will look like tomorrow?

    Dusty will likely go with

    Phillips
    Cabrera
    Votto
    Rolen
    Bruce
    Nix
    Stubbs
    Hanigan
    Arroyo

    I would go with
    Stubbs
    Bruce
    Votto
    Rolen
    Nix
    Hanigan
    Phillips
    Janish
    Arroyo

    I'm w/ you Edd.....great lineup. You can pick nits on flipping BP and RH, but this is just golden.

    I would love that lineup to mix things up tomorrow night. Too out of the box and logical for the current regime to even consider.

    These all sound like pretty good calls to me. Let's just hope we can get a run early tomorrow so this team can forget about last night.

    You can't have it both ways with Dusty, IMO.

    I think the consensus is that he is a great team-builder/leader by deferring to vets and deftly managing ego's, psyche's, young players, etc... There were several times this season that the Reds could have gone south and I do believe that quality leadership was part of the reason we stayed the course. And leadership comes from the top....and it absolutely filters through Dusty.

    Therefore, I think we must accept that Dusty is going to be very slow to make any drastic changes involving those vets that he invests with leading the team.

    I don't think he could make a guy like OCab a focal point and then stick him on the bench come post-season.

    I can't help but to agree completely.I get what everyone is saying about Dusty and the vets and Cabrera being a great clubhouse guy.It's just that Cabrera contributed nothing last night and certainly cost the team 3 runs.For a great leader his playoff track record is poor.

    Say what you want about how great Halladay was last night, but even for the great ones it's much more difficult to pitch with a one run lead opposed to cruising thru almost the entire game with a 4 run lead.

    Serious question...if Cabrera cost the team 3 runs last night, how many did Edinson cost them?

    And it could've been prevented if he'd just paid better attention to Victorino after the double in the first.

    I'm not going to defend Volquez because he didn't throw strikes early in the count and got himself into trouble on his own.With some solid defense though, he could of lasted a few more innings(not sure that would have been all that great).

    Maybe I missed it, but I don't get how our starting SS could botch a fairly routine play that cost the Reds 3 runs in the Reds first playoff game in 15 year in witch only 4 runs total were scored and get a free pass around here.

    Agreed with all this. The first inning run was definitely on Volquez. The second inning, well, Volquez deserves blame for walking Ruiz with two outs but what unfolded after that wasn't his fault.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    i only saw it live without replay but I didn't think it was routine. Up the middle and throwing across your body isn't routine.

    I wonder how much his oblique caused him not to go to first.

    Either way, I think letting Halladay get a hit off you probably ranks up there as run causing plays. Walking ruiz didn't do any good either.

    Think what you wish, but what is more routine than OCs play is blowing the pitcher off the field, especially when some describe your "stuff" as being the best in the game. Add in the fact that Halladay played in the AL his whole career and it is a no brainer.
