The Lineups

John Fay has posted the lineups for today's intrasquad game:

Team Nappy (Ed Napoliean)

Brandon Phillips 2B
Alex Gonzalez SS
Adam Dunn DH
Jeff Conine 1B
Josh Hamilton CF
David Ross C
Juan Castro 3B
Dewayne Wise RF
Chris Dickerson LF
Bronson Arroyo P

Team Bucky (Bucky Dent)

Ryan Freel CF
Chris Denorfia LF
Edwin Encarnacion 3B
Scott Hatteberg DH
Javier Valentin C
Mark Bellhorn 2B
Joey Votto 1B
Bubba Crosby RF
Paul Janish SS
Homer Bailey P

Bubba is starting in RF for "Team Bucky," batting eighth. But they said they want to give everyone a chance to play, so he might not play for the whole game (which is only five innings).

Bucky Dent - fondly known as "Bucky (Bleepin') Dent" in Boston - was the manager of the Columbus Clippers in 2004 and 2005, so he and Bubba have worked together before. Some have even speculated that Bucky was the one who encouraged Krivsky to sign Bubba.

Looks like there won't be live coverage of this game at or MLB.TV. Sigh. But John Fay and C. Trent Rosecrans have promised to post updates in their blogs.

Let's go, Bubba!
