The MSU announcers went through the starting line-ups and Rea was announced as a starter. No reason was given for him missing our last 2 games. Well he was put in for the bottom of the 9th on Saturday, but he never batted. Kind of surprised as the MSU game notes for today's game did not project Rea as a starter. I am starting to doubt an injury being the issue. I also know he has been in a slump hitting, but sitting someone in a slump usually doesn't work, it just takes getting back into a grove. However, I hope the big man's bat comes alive today.
