This losing streak is consuming my every thought. The Giants are a half-game back of the Rockies for the Cactus League Championship, and they need to win. Could you imagine how cool it would be to wear a CLC hat with a World Series sweatshirt? You'd be untouchable, man. Simply untouchable.
Split squad today, with the first one on MLB.tv at 3:05 PT. The Reds pitcher is Logan Ondrusek, who was acquired in a trade with the Detroit Red Wings. The Giants lineup:
|vs. Reds||vs. Indians|
|Torres - CF||Fontenot - 2B|
|Sanchez - 2B||Schierholtz - RF|
|Huff - RF||Belt - 1B|
|Posey - C||Rowand - CF|
|Burrell - LF||Ishikawa - LF|
|Sandoval - 3B||Rohlinger - 3B|
|Tejada - SS||Crawford - SS|
|DeRosa - 1B||Whiteside - C|
|Lincecum - SP||Pujols - DH|
The DH is "To Be Announced" right now, so there's still a slight chance that it will be Albert Pujols, and that's what I'm reporting until I hear differently. Also, looking at the lineup reminds me of the old saying: When your cleanup hitter is Aaron Rowand, your cleanup hitter is Aaron Rowand.
