Josh Hamilton's 1st major league start

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer blogger Trent Rosecrans, the word out of Arizona tonight on site is that the phenom 7 years waiting Josh Hamilton will get his first big league start tonight. Personally I hope that he gets it done and gives this offense a shot-in-the-arm igniter at the top of the lineup and scores on a few Dunn/Griffey hits.

Here’s the lineup unofficially for tonight’s game:

Josh Hamilton CF
Brandon Phillips 2B
Adam Dunn LF
Ken Griffey Jr. RF
Edwin Encarnacion 3B
Scott Hatteberg 1B
Alex Gonzalez SS
Javier Valentin C
Kyle Lohse P
