This is kind of off topic but this intrasquad game got me thinking. I think our AAA team could beat the big league club.

Yeah thats a reach, although the baseball magazines dont give the Reds much of a chance, I think this team will surprise a lot of people. Anyway if you were to start Harang against our AAA team he would probably shut them out, so basically our offense would only need to score once or twice.

Remember we got Alex Gonzalez and David Ross who will probably hit .190 this year before being sent out.
