The Reds play Cleveland at Goodyear Ballpark tonight. The game starts at 6:05 p.m. Pacific time, so 9:05 p.m. in Cincinnati. The game will be televised on FSO. Cleveland is the home team. Here’s the starting lineup for the Reds (Mark Sheldon) – almost all the starters.

I’ll be at the game. My seat is in the second row near home plate. I’m going to try to get over for the minor league game, this afternoon. I’ll post my thoughts about the game later. You can also follow me on Twitter at @spmancuso.

Steve grew up in Cincinnati as a die-hard fan of Sparky’s Big Red Machine. After 25 years living outside of Ohio, mostly in Ann Arbor, he returned to the Queen City in 2004. He has resumed a first-person love affair with the Cincinnati Reds and is a season ticket holder at Great American Ball Park.

  1. I plan to watch tonight. I’ll be sure and wave if I see you.

  2. Buy a green hat, Steve!

    • Bought a red Reds Spring Training 2017 hat today.

      • Can’t remember who but someone posted on Twitter and you were sitting in your seat, checking the phone, behind home plate. I love sitting behind the plate, for obvious reasons.

  3. Looks pretty much like the opening day lineup to me, with the exception of Cozart and Mes. I like the first 6 in the lineup to start the season in that order with Cozart batting 7th and Mes batting 8th. If Mes hits better than Cozart, they switch places in the order. Speed at the top of the order in front of JV, Duvall, Suarez and Schebler should create a lot of RBI opportunities in 2017.

  4. Interesting to see Okey is catching Castillo and Senzel getting a hit in the AA game today. Looks like starting the year in Pensacola might be a possibility for the both of them

  5. Wish I could get this game in my area … enjoy your evening in Goodyear!

  6. Just on numbers Feldman did not appear to have a particularly good outing versus the WhiteSox AAA team today

    4 + ip, 7 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 76 pitches per Mark Sheldon at Reds.com

    He’d probably say he was “getting his work in”; but, opening day is bearing down on us. It would be nice to see the quality of the work being gotten in getting better too.

  7. Yikes. Looks a little scrambly out in the field. Peraza eaten alive by the ball on his first chance, and Finnegan cut off a throw, preventing a play at the plate.

  8. No starting rotation set for the time being, same old history
