Re: Defense or Offense??
Since you described the offensive choice as a multi-home run affaird, I'm going with the defensive battle. I would actually pick offense but I prefer to see lots of singles and doubles and runners pushed over with timely hitting as opposed to a game with a bunch of big bombs.
Really, the best game is one where the Reds are rolling on offense and the starter is going deep while getting some good put outs behind him!
