Today is an interesting one. The Reds have played one more than the three other teams they are competing with. Today it evens out with the Reds on the sidelines, sleeping off yesterday's marathon/flight.
The Padres did their job in Pittsburgh, can't expect a sweep, not surprised Pirates are well ahead today. Forget that one.
The Cards face Roy Oswalt for the Rockies. Maybe Roy can pitch one more tough ballgame. That one starts in about 45 minutes.
Finally, Miami is in DC for four. Hope the Marlins can win a couple. Marlins pitcher Alvarez pitched well last time at Citifield and his ERA for the year is below 4. He faces Gio Gonzalez.
Let's go Rockies/Marlins. At least one of you need to win today, preferably both.

LOL...old Todd puts the hidden ball trick on Carp to end the inning
Rockies go up 4-0 on a Tulo HR.
"A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals and you know it."
4-0 Rox in the 3rd.
Tulo two run Jack.
"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.
Sounds like Wacha's getting a tough intro to pitching at Coors against the Rockies.
Can't win with 'em
Can't win without 'em
Oswalt starts the 4th with 2 walks...but Beltran has not had a hit since the year of the blue snow.
