The Reds are 6-3 heading into the new Busch Stadium for a 3 game weekend set. The team for most part (minus the bullpen and defense) has played well. The starting pitching has been great since the season began. But we all know St. Louis is a very tough place to play, and the middle of thier order can make even the best pitching staffs look weak.
Here are the pitching matchups:
Tonight: Harang vs. Carpenter
Tomorrow: Williams vs. Ponson
Sunday: Arroyo vs. Mulder
I'd say this series is about as big as a series this early in April can be. A good performance should not warrant the printing of playoff tickets and likewise a poor performance should not warrant giving up on the rest of the season.
So, what are your expectations and/or hopes for the next three days?
