The Reds' schedule is not exactly a gauntlet. Cardinal fans probably weren't thrilled to see St. Louis go into Washington while the Reds played Houston...
But, I like the way the matchups work in the Philadelphia series. Especially since they come in here after a long night in Atlanta. Kendrick may be on a roll, but he is not and likely never will be Lee or Hammels. Here is Cueto's chance to prove he is a Cy Young winner... here is Latos' chance to justify the "trade" by dropping the hammer on the Phillies in an important ballgame.
I like the challenge.
