    4/6/6 Game Thread vs Pirates (Welcome Home Casey)

    Thursday, April 6 7:10 PM ET
    PIT Ian Snell, RHP (0-0, -.--)
    Pirates (0-2)
    CIN Brandon Claussen, LHP (0-0, -.--)
    Reds (1-1)

    Scouting Report:
    Snell (1-2, 5.14 ERA in 2005) posted a 58-20 record in the Minor Leagues and will look to make the most of his first opportunity to start regularly in the big leagues. The right-hander has gone 1-3 with a 7.45 ERA in six starts with the Pirates. In his only career outing against the Brewers, Snell was charged with five runs in one inning.

    Last season was Claussen's (10-11, 4.21 ERA in 2005) first full year in the Cincinnati rotation. He established career highs in every statisical category and was the staff's second-most consistent starter behind Aaron Harang. The lefty was 2-0 with a 1.74 ERA in three games against the Pirates in 2005.

    Possibly the earliest start to a game thread ever.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I'm hoping for a Reds win against the Pirates.

    Nice that Casey is coming back to Cincinnati, but in all honesty, I could care less. Players change teams all the time. He's a great guy off the field, but I won't miss him on the field. We need to move on to a different model at 1B, and hopefully, sometime down the road, we will.

    I'm watching the weather closely. I'm leaving here about 3:30 and I really want to see Casey's return.

    It looks like it's for sure going to pour rain, but from the look of the radar, it might clear out and be gone by gametime.

    I hope so anyway.

    The forecast for tomorrow night is not good either so it may be a long couple of nights.

    So far, so good... 2 HRs & 6 RBIs from the 1st-base spot in two games for the REDS.

    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    I know Snell is highly regarded, but his stuff seemed very mediocre in the start I saw against the Reds in ST. He does have some nice offspeed stuff, but it just seems like he doesn't enough fastball to make the slow stuff effective on big league hitters. Anyone else have an opinion on Snell?

    If the Reds work Snell like they did Zambrano and Rusch, he's in for a miserable night.
