Pulled into the media lot at Ed Smith Stadium and was directed to a spot next to a white van – behind the Reds bullpen that’s right behind the right field wall and near the foul pole.
I’m done. Ken Griffey, Jr. and Adam Dunn are not in the lineup today. Jay Bruce and Joey Votto are. But HOW is my rental car going to survive batting practice? One deep drive down the line and I’m going to need a new ride.
The Twins have Mauer, Kubel and Garrett Jones for lefty hitters. I’m not worried about Jones because he rarely pulls the ball down the line….
I posted the Twins lineup yesterday. Here’s the Reds lineup:
1. Norris Hopper, CF. 2 Ryan Freel, LF. 3. Brandon Phillips. 2B. 4. Edwin Encarnacion. 5. Jay Bruce, RF. 6.Andy Phillips, 1B. 7. Juan Castro, SS. 8. Javier Valentin, C. 9. Joey Votto. P Matt Belisle.
