Reds are due to play 5 innings of Civil War at 1:05 local time, amidst a possible sandstorm. Might be a chance to break out the seldom-used Reds keffiyehs. And just in case, here's this.

Probably not much of anything to follow, unless you're actually at Goodyear Ballpark, but a rare Saturday thread isn't such a bad thing. UPDATE: Apparently, Jamie Ramsey will be Tweeting/blogging the game. Not sure if that will include the post-game meet-up at Chilis after the 5th inning wraps.

These lineups probably don't tell us anything we don't already know, but Dusty appears to be getting an early start on resting his vets. As he tells Mark Sheldon"You notice the common denominator here? Age. If I play them today, do I start off two days in a row with Renteria, Hernandez or Rolen? I don't think so." Travis Wood will be first to throw for Team White, Logan Ondrusek for Team Gray. Somewhat interesting to see Frazier at 3B. The playing time he gets their over the spring could be an early indicator as to how much he'll be groomed as Rolen's fill-in in the event of an extended DL trip.

Go Team Gray! They're my favorite half of my favorite team.
