    4.19.12 Day Game Reds @ St. Louis 1:45 ET start

    #Reds lineup per Fay

    Cozart 6,
    Stubbs 8,
    Votto 3,
    Phillips 4,
    Bruce 9,
    Ludwick 7,
    Frazier 5,
    Hanigan 2,
    Arroyo RHP 0-0, 2.63 ERA

    v
    Furcal 6,
    Jay 8,
    Holliday 7,
    Beltran 9,
    M.Carpenter 3,
    Cruz 2,
    Descalso 5,
    Greene 4,
    Adam Wainwright, RHP
    0-2, 11.42 ERA

    Adam Wainwright called Friday's home opener the worst start of his career, but more than anything else, it served as a reminder for the Cardinals' ace.

    Wainwright gave up eight earned runs in only three innings. It was the second shortest outing of his career and only one of two in which he's surrendered eight earned runs. As he continues to make his way back from Tommy John surgery, Wainwright could be discovering that rough outings like Friday's are simply part of the process in returning.

    "I guess it is," he said. "That's not the way I was pitching in Spring Training. I was throwing the ball with a lot of life. Everything was very sharp early in the spring. Toward the end of spring -- I wouldn't call it a dead-arm phase -- but I've certainly got a little ways to go."

    Phillips knows why he's been struggling, pointing to a sore left hamstring that has him playing around 60 percent right now. And he believes the rest of his team will come around at the plate eventually as well.

    "It's hard for me to hit off of my legs. My presence in the lineup is cool. I can get key hits when I need to. My timing is off a little bit," Phillips said. "When it comes to everyone else, I don't know how they feel when they're in the box. You can only go off of production and we're not getting key hits in key situations. We're not having good at-bats. I believe in this team. We've been through it all. When it rains it pours and right now, things aren't going our way."

    Hope Todd Frazier has a good day. Maybe the new guy will be the spark.

    That's cool how Brandon can determine when is the right time to get a hit or not.

    I have a good feeling about today's game. Reds are tough in these salvage situations.

    Except all he was saying that is you have to be in the lineup to get key hits.

    My presence in the lineup is cool. I can get key hits when I need to.

    Two Red killers out of the lineup today, Molina and Berkman. Might have a chance in this one. We'll see if the good Arroyo shows up or the bad Arroyo.

    Sorry I didn't give you more credit, there have been so many comments that should be laughable where people are actually being serious, that its hard to distinguish.

    And I actually noted "haven't seen this old timer post for awhile," so glad to bump into you again. Its all good.

    Probably only get 9 runs today. Tyler Greene hit a HR last night. Jaime Garcia had a triple and two hits for goodness sake. Hopefully their arms and legs are tired from swinging and circling the bases last night.

    I chuckled when I read that too. I know he only meant it in regards to him being confident, but the way he worded it. Priceless. "I can get key hits when I need to."
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    Just means we are bound to create two new reds killers.

    wouldn't doubt that a bit. My guess is Carpenter and Greene will be Red Killers.
