Opening Day Lineupstravaganza: Mets @ Reds, 1PM

| | Comments (5)

Traditionally, the first game of the regular season is played in Cincinnati, because the first ever professional baseball team was headquarted in Cincy. Also because nobody ever wants to argue with people who serve chili over spaghetti. Whatever, it's a city holiday and we'll sit patiently by as these weirdos enjoy their pomp and pageantry.

Unless, of course, that brutal snowstorm blankets Ohio in three inches of wintery mix. I blame Bud Selig for the possibility of all inclement weather in early April or late October. Why? BECAUSE I CAN.

Here are your lineups for today's first game:

Jose Reyes, SSJerry Hairston, Jr., LF
Daniel Murphy, LFDarnell McDonald, CF
David Wright, 3BJoey Votto, 1B
Carlos Delgado, 1BBrandon Phillips, 2B
Carlos Beltran, CFJay Bruce, RF
Ryan Church, RFEdwin Encarnacion, 3B
Brian Schneider, CRamon Hernandez, C
Luis Castillo, 2BAlex Gonzalez, SS
Johan Santana, PAaron Harang, P

Yes, I had to look up Darnell McDonald on the Baseball Reference. He's starting in place of an flu-ridden Willy Taveras. That's no way to maintain your Willy Taveras, Dusty.
