    Gotta get game one vs the Cubs, because with lefties facing Maddux and Zambrano in the next two, it could get ugly.

    Why would you think it would get ugly for Dunn/Griffey/Hatteberg against Maddux? He has been pretty hittable for this team the last few years.

    I hate having another off-day this early in the season. Selfishly, have waited so long for baseball, it sucks to have to wait yet another day for them to resume.

    You're absolutely right that the Reds have hit Maddux well. It always surprises me, and it would surprise me again. In any case, I look for Claussen and Milton to get roughed up by Lee, Ramirez, Barrett and Murton. Hope not, but......

    I agree. I think those two games send the Reds down the slope to mediocrity. The starters will both be out by inning 3 or 4, and the atrocious bullpen will get deeply taxed--and become worse than it already is.

    Yeah, it's no big deal. It isn't like the Reds haven't had any off days and they are coming in to CHI today.

    Yep, it's the most important game of the year.

    ...and I live in the heart of Wrigleyville, and it becomes a horrible place when the Cubbies win too many times in a row.
