REDS PROBABLE: PHILLIES PROBABLE:
Jeremy Affeld Jamie Moyer
This is where it all kicks off today. Fay is whining about it being a "bone-chilling 56 degrees here with whipping winds" but as I sit in 21 degree, snowy weather, I don't feel sorry for him.
Here is the Reds lineup today. Warning, it is not for the faint of heart:
Ryan Freel CF
Norris Hopper LF
Brandon Phillips 2B
Edwin Encarnacion 3B
Joey Votto 1B
Jay Bruce RF
Jeff Keppinger SS
Paul Bako C
Andy Green DH
We get our first peek at Jeremy Affeldt in a Reds uniform. Hopefully they can start the spring out on a strong note.
And yes, Virginia, this game is being broadcast on 700WLW.
