    Liriano v. Latos

    Is this a preview of the wild-card game? Pittsburgh announced Liriano will start their first post-season game and it appears Latos is lined up to do the same for Cincinnati. Let's see how it plays out tonight, but I, for one, do not look forward to having one game against Liriano decide the Reds' season.
    What if this is as good as it gets?

    Liriano is tough but I would rather face the Pirates in a one gamer than the Cardinals based on how we do against them

    That's actually why I rather see the Reds play the Cards in one game instead of a series.

    I think our chances of going to the NLCS is better playing 1 game vs cards and a series vs the pirates than vice versa.

    Agree. We might get lucky one game

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    You know what? I don't care a fig who we face, where, how or when...bring 'em! The Reds are gonna beat 'em...I gotta feeling about this post season. It's when no one sees the serpent that he strikes the hardest.

    I was thinking the Reds had handled him fairly well up to now. It doesn't matter to me who they would face in a one game playoff. Just score more runs than them. That's all that matters.

    I would very seriously consider Homer Bailey vs. the Bucs if that's the matchup and it's one game or go home.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    Both have had strong seasons but neither has lasted 7 innings against tonights opponent this year. Be interesting to see who steps up. Seems like Latos and Liriano would both do well in these matchups based on lineups but has not been the case.

    Re: Liriano v. Latos

    Liriano has fared very poorly agaisnt Cincy this year, and he has faired much worse on the road also.

    Latos has fared much better this year vs. the Pirates, and was superb last year in 3 starts.

    There is a huge difference in getting Liriano at home or on the road.

    We need to at least get the WC game at home.

    You think Bucs fans are thrilled with the prospect of facing Latos in a loser-leaves-town scenario?

    I think in a high stress situation Homer is the pitcher to go with. Latos attempts to be too perfect in big time games.

    Not possible. I have a feeling the Cards will start Wainwright against Liriano.

    ~edit~ Didn't see S.O.L.'s post. :O) Beat me to it.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG
