Same lineup as last night, with Cueto pitching.

:thumbdown This is going to be asking a lot to squeeze another win out of that group. Really tough, we need to have a big series.

I think they work out their kinks defensively and come together nicely tonight. If Cueto can dominate, look for a bunch of DPs.

I know, it could be tough. For the first time as a baseball fan, I'm praying for a rain-out. The extra day of rest and recovery could be great for Votto and BP, and save us from this lineup situation.

I have no clue why Gonzo hasn't been DLed so they can bring up Gomes or someone who can give them another option off the bench.

I guess we're content with letting Gonzo ride out the injury, coming back in a few days and hurting it even worse. Then when he goes to the DL, we'll finally get that call-up everyone's looking for.

I think a rainout looks likely. I just hope we don't start the game and then lose Cueto to a rain delay.

The other day, St. Louis had a game when it looked like a lot of rain with several delays. Larussa scratched his scheduled starter and called it a "bullpen" game.

What a tough time for the whole team to get the flu. Everyone else will have to step it up. Votto's been carrying the team Offensively. Others will have to do it again tonight like they did last night.
