Registered D-Nozzle Orlando Cabrera Likely Out For Game 3

After pulling some muscles in his left side in the early innings of the game two debacle, Dusty Baker has all but ruled his shortstop Orlando Cabrera out for game three. If he takes Cabrera out and replaces him with Chris Vanaika, Orlando will be ineligible for the rest of the series and the NLCS, should they make it there. With an 0-2 hole in a three game series, that seems unlikely.

Paul Janish will replace him in the everyday lineup. If Cole Hamels has anything to say about it, that will be one game. I actually think Janish is the better player, so this works in the Reds favor.
