liner to Cairo.
1B: Votto v Fielder ... wash (if anything, Votto)
2B: Phillips v Raburn, Santiago (or whatever scrub the Tigers are playing at 2B that day) ... Phillips
3B: Rolen/Frazier v Cabrera ... Cabrera
SS: Cozart v Peralta ... Cozart (we're not talking about last year)
LF: Ludwick/Heisey v Young ... wash (Young's numbers stink ... they're like spoiled milk)
CF: Stubbs v Jackson ... Jackson (but not by much)
RF: Bruce v Boesch ... Bruce
Cozart with another single
Heisey laces a single down the right field line, 1st and third
Perralta has better numbers this year than Cozart so I would call that a wash also. Cozart would be better if this team had a legitimate leadoff hitter. Basically their about even but this Tigers team is an under achieving bunch which isn't like a Leyland team. When V-Mart comes back the lineup will be that much better. I still like their lineup even with the facts in front of my face. Over a 162 game season they will produce

I'm concerned about Joey here. He may faint when he realizes there are two on and no out for him.
Votto 3-run jack!
Best hitter in baseball!
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
