    This may change but for now the regular starters are all starting:

    Phillips 4
    Cozart 6
    Votto 3
    Ludwick 7
    Bruce 9
    Rolen 5
    Hanigan 2
    Stubbs
    Bailey 1

    Totally meaningless game now except that Homer is trying break Johnny Vander Meer's record. I expect the starters to come out early if they stick to this lineup.

    Of all of Dusty's lineups for 162 games, I don't understand this at all. It's a meaningless game why take ANY injury risks.

    Phillips hasn't been completely healthy. Rolen is always an injury risk. Hanigan, catchers are always at risk. Votto, let him rest that knee.

    The only guy I can figure is Bruce who needs another RBI for 100.

    Start them and come out early is a good plan. No injuries needed.

    Why start them? We've seen Phillips leg/thigh issue. Rolen gets hurt frequently.

    Why start them at all?

    So, on the unlikely chance Homer does throw another no-no, if he threw a third one in his first start next year, would that break Vandermeer's record or do they treat that like a hitting streak where you start over in a new season?

    So they aren't rusty come the NLDS? They're getting 2 days of the rest of the week. I think they will live.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    I'll be watching to see if Drew Stubbs finishes the year with more strikeouts (165) than total bases (164).

    I am not making that up.

    Yes, it's important for the Reds to keep the regulars in to continue with their current offensive momentum.

    Here's my lineup tonight, entirely geared to getting Bruce his RBI without using anyone who is an injury risk (except Ludwick who needs the work):

    HRod 2B
    Frazier 3B
    Bruce RF
    Ludwick LF
    Heisey CF
    Hanigan C
    Cairo 1B
    Bailey P
    Gregorius SS

    This isn't like football or basketball. Timing is a big part of baseball. Dusty might not want his starters having three straight days off without hitting live pitching if he can avoid it.

    LOL, they haven't exhibited a lot of timing lately, at least on offense, I doubt tonight makes a difference.

    Injuries are also a big part of baseball.

    I don't know. My guess is that they would treat it as a record with a big fat * beside it.

    Re: 10/3/12 - Reds at Cardinals

    Is Bailey still scheduled to start tonight now that the Nats have the 1 seed locked up? If so, and if the story about the Reds going with a three man rotation is true, that seems to be very strange. This is a meaningless game. If Homer's role is indeed the person who can jump in and replace a starter who gets in trouble early, that means that he will be on short rest if he starts tonight and if Cueto or Arroyo struggle in games 1 or 2.

    If he is going to be the game 4 starter or if this game meant something, I would not have a problem with him starting. If he is indeed supposed to be the insurance policy, why would you pitch him tonight? I say give any bullpen arms who need the work an inning each and then let the September call ups take the remainder of the innings tonight.

    The Braves had alot of their normal starters in today... After 3innings they started pulling them...

    I'd guess that is what is going to happen tonight.

    I don't wish harm on any player...but I really wouldn't mind of Stubbs broke his pinky finger in his left hand or something.
    "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."
