Tom Uhlman/AP (Fogg), Matt York/AP (Bush)
Neither pitcher had very good results in his first start of the year as Bush was pounded by the Cubs last Thursday and Fogg was patchy at best against the Phillies on Friday. The Reds could use a good outing from Fogg in a game like this versus a division rival. There is no better time than the present to start stealing games from one of the favorites to win the division.
And the offense better do a little sumpin'-sumpin' tonight. They're due.
[Note by boobs, 04/09/08 5:48 PM EDT ] Here we go. Guess who's not starting at third... From Fay:
1. Corey Patterson CF
2. Ryan Freel 3B
3. Ken Griffey Jr. RF
4. Brandon Phillips 2B
5. Adam Dunn LF
6. Jeff Keppinger SS
7. Scott Hatteberg 1B
8. Javy Valentin C
9. Josh Fogg P
So the guys who are getting on base are batting 5-6-7. The guys who are hitting for power are batting 1-3-4. If we didn't have 8 and 9 hitters, this would be an ideal second-inning lineup.
