Spring Game 13 Thread: Reds at Yankees

MLB Florida and Arizona Spring Training - SB Nation

First night game in a while, and this time it is against the vaunted Yankees.  Well they would be vaunted if their lineup wasn't missing their regular C, 1B, 2B, 3B, and SS tonight.  Still, Nick Masset has his work cut out for him in the race to be the 5th starter.  Yes, I'm still rooting against him, but not so much that I want him to lose tonight's game.  I'm just rooting enough so that he won't win the 5th spot in the rotation.

Available out of the pen for the Reds tonight are RHP Jordan Smith, RHP James Avery, LHP Aaron Fultz and RHP Carlos Fisher.

The Reds offense will go up against Joba Chamberlain.  Chamberlain has an 18.00 ERA right now, so he must not be very good or something.  The big news tonight is that Alex Gonzalez will be playing shortstop for the first time in a Reds uniform since September, 2007.  I'm interested to hear BK's take on how well Gonzalez moves.

See the lineups after the jump.
