Walker, Alvarez Jones all sit despite the off day tomorrow. Tabata starts and bats second, Harrison plays at third and John McDonald at second.

Not the most optimistic line-up, especially with J. Sanchez on the mound, but alas completing the road sweep would be pleasant to pull a game within .500 with a tough Reds series coming up.

He's going with an all righty lineup against a pretty decent lefty.

With McDonald, Harrison, and Barmes in the lineup, I will be sorely disappointed if the person posting the lineups today doesn't use a photo making reference to the lumber company.

I predict a 15 run breakout today.

In all seriousness, Jonathan Sanchez could legitimately bat 6th in this order.

Would prefer to see the Fort catching today, but I'm not the Manager. Hope Martin goes 3 for4 today.

The nutty NL Central. A win today will probably put the Buccos just a game back of 1st.

I'd sit Pedro with the excuse of a left-handed pitcher, but Walker had what seems to be his first decent night at the plate last night. I'd have kept him in.

Sounds like some bad luck with opponent defensive gems cost us a run or two there.

Pitchers can throw the ball to home, make it move a few inches along the way, and fit it in a small spot on the corner of the plate. Yet, when they try to throw to any other base, it looks like it's the first time they've ever picked up a baseball.

That throw Gomez made to Jones on a comebacker was so head scratching. Seriously.

The minute the Bucs are able to go with younger guys from their system rather than some washed-up has been will be the same minute I start believing in this team.
