Best lineup of the series. Here's to putting up 8 runs and getting back on track.
Reds face Ross Detwiler, a former 6th overall pick. He was pulled after 5 shutout innings in his first start after 71 pitches - so he's on a tight pitch count but he's effective when he's on the mound (ERA last season of 3.0).
Reds ought to be patient and work the count deep because it's doubtful he'll throw 90 pitches today.
Good to have a different user starting this thread to change things up. Lineup looks good. Let's get a win for a positive plane trip today.
* Attended the 1990 and 2010 Reds Division clinchers *
Watched the 2012 Clincher on FOX.
*Bat Votto SECOND, please?*
If Phillips sees 14 or more pitches the Reds will score over 3 runs.
Best line up all year!!!!
Only way the Reds put up 8 runs today is if they play 8 games. If the Reds are capable of having a lineup that can be described as "good," this is probably it.
Ain't no party like a Marty Party.
If the Reds score 8 runs and any person on here gripes about any of it AFTER the 8 runs should be banned from posting on here.
Anybody know where I can get Heisey's numbers at CF and LF?He seems to play better when
starting at CF(small sample size) compared to LF.
