NLDS Game 3 Pregame Thread: Phillies go with same lineup, Rockies lineup missing Hawpe again.

New, comments

No surprises in the Philadelphia lineup, with the exception of the pitcher it's exactly the same as it has been the first two games of the series according to Troy Renck:

 

  1. Jimmy Rollins, SS
  2. Shane Victorino, CF
  3. Chase Utley, 2B
  4. Ryan Howard, 1B
  5. Jayson Werth, RF
  6. Raul Ibanez, LF
  7. Pedro Feliz, 3B
  8. Carlos Ruiz, C
  9. J.A. Happ, P

Jim Tracy's lineup according to Jack Etkin is missing Brad Hawpe once again:

  1. Carlos Gonzalez
  2. Dexter Fowler
  3. Todd Helton
  4. Troy Tulowitzki
  5. Yorvit Torrealba
  6. Garrett Atkins
  7. Ryan Spilborghs
  8. Clint Barmes
  9. Jason Hammel

I still think it's a mistake to not start Seth Smith, and Atkins has done little this series to reward Tracy's faith in him, which is why the scorching hot Torrealba is getting moved up. 

Putting this up now because we're all getting antsy. We can discuss the Yankees/Twins game here.
