    Fresh off the presses:

    Cozart
    Heisey CF
    Phillips
    Bruce
    Frazier 3B
    Paul LF
    Cairo 1B
    Hanigan
    Cueto

    Boy am I sick of seeing Miguel Cairo playing first. He must have the intangibles of Mother Theresa, because I think she outhits him.

    Not going to this game but tonight for the Redmond special. Based on this lineup I'm looking at Rolen (3rd) and Frazier (1st) tonight?

    Probably a safe assumption - guessing Dusty will play the A-team tonight knowing we may need lots of runs.

    Yes. From what I saw they'll be on the whole night. (Probably with a break between games)

    Righty pitches for the Cubs in the day game, lefty in the night game. That's why Stubbs plays the night game (Heisey in) and that's why XMan plays the day game.

    Rolen sits because day game after night game, I guess, although that same night/day situation happens tomorrow again. With Cueto's ground ball tendencies, Scott arguably should have played game 1.

    Guessing night game will be Mesoraco, Frazier (1B), Phillips, Valdez (SS), Rolen, Ludwick, Stubbs, Bruce.

    HBP leads off game on 0-2 pitch.

    Vitters hitting second flies to Paul. DeJesus holds at first.

    Looks like WGN is carrying it, at least here in MD.
    Is it "next season" yet?

    Would you rather have your A squad with your A pitcher and lock down one game, or split them and make it a little harder in both games?

    Rizzo up, one on one out, Cueto goes up 0-2 third batter in a row.

    Rizzo Ks. Two down.

    I thought Cueto picked him off.
    2014 Reds record: 1-2

    I look like a banker in this...
