So, if we bash Valdez in the two hole will he have a monster game?
FYI This is the free game of the day on MLB.com
Recipe for disaster. Leadoff man OBP is .301. Pray that Valdez does something. Same with Mes. I really don't understand.

Revere singles to right
Mastroianni sacrifices the runner to 2nd.
Mauer grounds out to 2nd. Runner to 3rd. 2 outs.
Willingham flies out to right. 0-0 mid 1st.
Heisey flies out to the track in center.
Valdez strikes out swinging.
One pitch, one out. I know some of you don't agree with working the count, but this pitcher is good. A low pitch count could spell disaster today and this win is needed. A ten pitch inning may mean a complete game.
Votto strikes out swinging on a pitch in the dirt. 0-0 after 1.
