No lineups yet but I believe the Reds are undefeated when I start a game thread so I figured I'd throw caution to the wind and get this started.

I have a good feeling about tonight. And here's why:

I was watching the Yanks and Twins and fell asleep on the couch last night. I got into a deep enough sleep to have a dream. In the dream it was game two of Reds and Phils and my favorite player Orlando Cabrera had just hit his second HR of the game, a grand slam no less. Just before I woke up I saw his grand slam made the score 17-7 Reds in the top of the 8th inning. Cabrera's first HR was apparently a 3-Run shot. So if he drives in 7 runs tonight, I will never bring up Paul Janish again.

When I woke up I realized that I had my dream during the same time that Orlando Hudson had hit his HR for the Twins, so I think that may have influenced my dream.

I swear to God that's all true.

If Oswalt gets to the 5th with a no hitter,someone please go to ORG and start a no hitter alert thread. That usually breaks up a no hitter faster than anything. No one did that the other night and it costs us. :D

Nix v. Oswalt: 18 PA, .529/.556/1.176, 9 H (6 XBH), 2 SO, 1 BB. One of those homers gets caught at the wall and his SLG drops .300 points. Color me skeptical, but optimistic.

If he's really that good against him, why not bat him even higher? This strikes me more as Dusty liking to keep guys in their role. LF bats 5th in our lineup.

The way I look at it the team just needs to come out loose and play like we know they can and they can win this. The national media has already written them off most of the front runner fans that never follow the team anyway have written them off after the other night. Nobody is really expecting anything but the Phillies to roll this series but if the Reds can pull this off tonight and I like the matchup suddenly we have a series and the stadium will be rocking when they get home on Sunday.

MVP has to be MVP IMO tonight. My guess is that Joey V drives in over half of our runs tonight with at least one coming via the long ball. I hope it is 1-0 after 1 thanks to a solo shot by Votto on the first pitch he sees.

IMO Phillips lead off AB could be huge today. If he gets on base, OCab scoots him over, and we have the opportunity for MVP or Rolen to come up with an RBI and and take an early 1-0. A 1-0 lead or more after the top of the first would be unbelievably big from a team confidence standpoint and momentum standpoint.

Let's do it Phillips!

Oh geez:

He hasn't faced Philly since 2008, which was his worst year with the Reds by a lot. I wouldn't look too much into it.

He actually ONLY faced Philly in 2008 while a member or the Reds. So a chunk of those AB's are probably from Ibanez while with KCR and SEA in the AL.

There are so many conflicting numbers... Arroyo has gotten destroyed by this lineup and by the Phillies in general. Oswalt is 23-2 vs. the Reds but not recently. Oswalt is undefeated in the playoffs. Arroyo has the 9th worst ERA in playoffs history.

It goes without saying but we must get a Quality Start from Bronson. It's obvious Roy O is off his game. He's only getting the heater over, the changeup is up and he's overthrowing his curveball.

Yeah, in the playoffs the manager will give the pitcher a little more of a leash to work with. But a high pitch count early for Roy O can only be a good thing for us. How good will he be when he's approaching 110 pitches?
