Guess we need a 2011 version, huh?

And so it begins.

Baseball is back, and the defending National League Central champion Cincinnati Reds begin their spring training games today with a tilt versus the Cleveland Indians. Marty Brennaman will broadcast the game over 700 WLW, and you should be able to access it through as well.

Matt Maloney will start on the mound, since Edinson Volquez hasn’t gotten his work visa issue straightened out. The rest of the lineup is below. With the exception of the designated hitter, I expect that today’s lineup is the one we’ll see more often than any other in 2011.
