Lineup Card: Rockies vs Reds

You know how you can tell when a rotation is rounding into form?  When any one of four guys can go to the mound and you feel great about your team's chances of winning.  

The Rockies have their four -- Ubaldo, Hammel, De La Rosa, and now they have added Jhoulys Chacin.  

Who knows... maybe Aaron Cook has found his confidence (and "health") and can serve as a really really good 5th starter.  

Rockies Lineup (73-64)
  1. 2B  Young
  2. CF  Fowler
  3. LF  Gonzalez
  4. SS  Tulowitzki
  5. 1B  Helton
  6. 3B  Mora
  7. RF  Smith
  8. C    Olivo
  9. P    Chacin
Apparently Chacin is more "comfortable" with Miguel Olivo, too.  

Reds Lineup (79-58)
  1. 2B  Phillips
  2. SS  Cabrera
  3. 1B  Votto
  4. 3B  Rolen
  5. LF  Gomes
  6. C    Hernandez
  7. CF  Stubbs
  8. RF  Heisey
  9. P    Cueto
Reds get a couple regulars back in there in Orlando Cabrera and Scott Rolen.  The recently red hot Jay Bruce remains out with a rib injury.  We know all about those with Brad Hawpe and Dexter Fowler.    Wish Jay the best... starting Friday.  

Thanks to Mark Sheldon for providing the Reds lineup.
