Re: The Reds will get the big 3 Labor Day weekend
I thought of this as soon and the Cards got swept by the Stros. They frontloaded their rotation for the Reds series but got beat soundly by the Astros while the Reds swept the Brewers. LaRussa basically puts a weaker team out there two days leading up to the Reds series and two days after the Reds series. When you look at the grand scheme of things, in a 162 game season all 162 game count the same.
I know LaRussa invented baseball but it doesn't make much sense to me to have your 1 and 2 pitchers pitching back to back.
