The Reds are in Montreal today and tomorrow to face the Blue Jays in some pre-season action. I will limit my prelude here because a) you probably aren't reading this, and b) I have some quantity of wine in me already.

Here are the lineups:


Lineup

CINCINNATI REDS TORONTO BLUE JAYS
Billy Hamilton - CF Jose Reyes - SS
Joey Votto - 1B Russell Martin - C
Todd Frazier - 3B Jose Bautista - RF
Devin Mesoraco - C Edwin Encarnacion - DH
Marlon Byrd - LF Josh Donaldson - 3B
Jay Bruce - RF Dalton Pompey - CF
Brandon Phillips - 2B Justin Smoak - 1B
Zack Cozart - SS Kevin Pillar - LF
Marquez Smith - DH Devon Travis - 2B
Jason Marquis - SP Mark Buehrle - SP

Buehrle will go around three innings, and will be followed by Aaron Loup, Brett Cecil, Colt Hynes, Todd Redmond, and Jeff Francisreports Mike Wilner. I thought that Jeff Francis would be at the game, being Canadian and all, but he wasn't found on the official lineup card (see link below).

According to the Blue Jays lineup card (via Barry Davis) the club has brought the following minor leaguers (and non-roster invitees) to the game, which should be quite the experience for them:

  • Jon Berti
  • Matt Boyd
  • Brady Dragmire
  • Miguel Castro
  • Taylor Cole
  • Jonathan Diaz
  • Jeff Francis (not listed in lineup)
  • Munenori Kawasaki
  • Sean Ochinko
  • Roberto Osuna
  • Luis Perez
  • Dwight Smith Jr.
  • Devon Travis

GO JAYS GO!

There are rules and such... follow them.
