We have a lineup, and I would expect this to be the opening day lineup


Choo 8, Phillips 4, Votto 3, Ludwick 7, Bruce 9, Frazier 5, Cozart 6, Hanigan 2, (Olivo DH, Cingrani LHP)

I was just going to post this, but was checking to see if we did ST games in this part of the forum last season or not.

I know whomoever was going to start was only going to go 2 innings at most, and I know they are likely setting things up with the longer ST to hold back the expected starters a bit, but with the first game of ST, when a good portion of cincy will be tuning in and getting the baseball juices flowing, I'm surprised they went with Cingrani rather than Bronson or Leake or Homer or Latos, etc..

At any rate, it will be good to hear Marty and the gang again.

It's nice not to have to see the "NLDS GAME #5" thread anymore.

It's great to be back. Hopefully this is the start to the Road to the World Series. Here's the Indians lineup. Stubbs in RF.

1. Michael Bourn (L) CF
2. Asdrubal Cabrera (S) SS
3. Jason Kipnis (L) 2B
4. Nick Swisher (S) 1B
5. Michael Brantley (L) LF
6. Carlos Santana (S) C
7. Mark Reynolds (R) DH
8. Lonnie Chisenhall (L) 3B
9. Drew Stubbs (R) RF

8. Lonnie Chisenhall (L) 3B
9. Drew Stubbs (R) RF

Y'know, this batting order isn't bad at all. If Kipnis is for real, Santana bounces back, and everyone else goes for career averages, between defense and offense, they're solid.

It's the pitching that sucks.

It would be even funnier if they went to the wrong position. Stubbs is playing Choo's old spot in RF while Choo is playing Stubbs old spot in CF. :laugh:

Ludwick draws a walk, still no one out.

Frazier ground ball brings in a third run.

02-22-2013, 04:21 PM
Votto headed to the locker room, woozy over the fact that there were two runners on base when he came to the plate.

Danny Serafini
02-22-2013, 04:24 PM
Cozart doubles to right and chases the pitcher from the game. I believe it's Fernando Nieve coming in.

medford
02-22-2013, 04:25 PM
Cozart goes oppage for a double, frasier held at 1st (the cowboy indicated that the speed of stubbs kept the ball from getting to the wall and allowing frasier to score, so i guess we're back to the drawing board with neither side winning the trade to date :) )

Hanigan fly drops between Bourn and Stubbs, either of which could've had it. Oops.

IIRC, neither are native English speakers, which could explain the mixup.

Olivo pops up to 1st to mercifully end the inning for Cleveland. 5-0

Danny Serafini

Indians get on the board with 2 outs. Cabrera had singled and stole 2nd, Swisher now bring him home with a single to right.

Votto and Ludwick with back-to-back 2 out singles

Bruce flies out to center to end the threat. 5-3, mid 2nd

Who in the blank is Curtis Partch?

Danny Serafini
02-22-2013, 05:11 PM
Partch now walks the bases loaded with 1 out.

Marty just said no regular starting pitchers until Homer on Tues.

Partch serves up a double play ball, but Cozart blows the throw back on the 3-6-1 attempt. Now 5-4, 2 out

Danny Serafini
02-22-2013, 05:12 PM

Spent most of last year at AA. Not any real threat to make the Opening Day roster, but they did give him a spot on the 40 man. And he Ks Kipnis to end the inning.

Danny Serafini

Vinny Pestano in to pitch, and starts with Frazier flying out to left

Thanks. I usually keep a little bit of an eye on the Reds minor leagues and this is the first I'd heard his name. With three kids I guess I don't have the time to spend doing that I use to. ;-)

Reds go down 1-2-3. 5-4, mid 3rd

Partch stays in and gets Swisher to ground to 1st on the 1st pitch. Clay Hensley warming up

Danny Serafini
02-22-2013, 05:30 PM
Brantley doubles off the wall in left, then moves to 3rd on a balk

Danny Serafini
02-22-2013, 05:31 PM
Votto whiffs on fielding a Santana grounder, and we're all tied at 5 now.

Danny Serafini
02-22-2013, 05:35 PM
Reynolds flies out to right, then Chisenhall flies over the right field wall. Now 7-5 CLE, Hensley coming in now to pitch.

Danny Serafini
02-22-2013, 05:41 PM
Phillips snares an attempted Stubbs liner to end the inning. Joe Martinez in to pitch the 4th for Cleveland.

Danny Serafini
02-22-2013, 05:42 PM
BOOM! Miguel Olivo with the first Reds homer of the year! 7-6 Cleveland.

Danny Serafini
02-22-2013, 05:43 PM
Wholesale changes for the Indians, and for the life of me I don't know who any of these people are. But Choo just grounded out to whoever is standing at SS.

Danny Serafini
02-22-2013, 05:44 PM
Phillips rips a shot down the left field line, but Generic 3B snags it and throws him out.

Bottom of the 4th starts with a fly out to Heisey, who's now in center. Lots of changes for the Reds now, too.

Danny Serafini

10-8 after a 1st pitch dinger by Cord Phelps off of Villarreal. Then 1-2-3 for Pedro.

Ryan Raburn hit the dinger, not Phelps. I was going off of Brantley. Sorry.

Pitching is a little rough in the early going. Alfredo Simon got roughed up for four runs in 1.2 IP. Nick Christiani pitched 1.2 innings, giving up two hit and two walks but somehow no runs. Wilkin de la Rosa, channelling his inner Arredondo, walks the first batter he faces.

texasdave
02-23-2013, 05:46 PM
Choo 1 for 2 with 2 runs scored. Phillips with a double and an RBI. Lutz 1 for 1 with a HBP. Frazier with 2 singles. Olivo walked twice!!!!
De la Rosa roughed up for three runs in his brief outing. 7-3 Indians.

Billy Hamilton is in centerfield.

texasdave
02-23-2013, 05:49 PM
Billy Hamilton bunts on the first pitch but it goes right to the pitcher for out number one. Brantley also ready for the season, mistaking Burriss for Hamilton.
