    Merged: Things looking better: Pirates next!! / Thank God We Play The Pirates

    Just thought I'd point out a positive since we're all down about being swept by the Phillies. Three games in Pittsburgh should help our offense with their marginal-at-best pitching. Also, seeing how they made Brian Moehler look like an all-star today (and help end his 22 game losing streak) I think Harang and Arroyo should be nearly unhittable for this club. Get a sweep there and we're back on track for Detroit. I love that they're in our division!

    I agree. Should win atleast 2 in PNC....Detroit is so hot right now, they are due to cool down by the end of the week....I hope.

    Re: Things are looking better: The Pirates are next!!

    Every pitcher the Reds are supposed to face have an ERA over 5.00 and 2 out of the 3 Pirates pitchers have been walking alot of guys.

    Aaron Harang, RHP (5-1, 4.02) vs. Paul Maholm, LHP (1-4, 5.03)
    Harang: 53.2 IP, 54 Hits, 8 HR, 12 BB, 50 K
    Maholm: 39.1 IP, 52 Hits, 5 HR, 21 BB, 18 K

    Bronson Arroyo, RHP (5-1, 2.03) vs. Oliver Perez, LHP (1-5, 7.71)
    Arroyo: 57.2 IP, 46 Hits, 6 HR, 12 BB, 43 K
    Perez: 32.2 IP, 42 Hits, 9 HR, 27 BB, 26 K

    Elizardo Ramirez, RHP (1-3, 3.13) vs. Victor Santos, RHP (1-4, 5.32)
    Ramirez: 23 IP, 24 Hits, 3 HR, 8 BB, 18 K
    Santos: 44 IP, 52 Hits, 4 HR, 14 BB, 27 K

    With Harang, Arroyo, and Ramirez pitching, anything less than a sweep of the Pirates would be a disappointment.

    Well haven't you changed your tune about Mr. Ramirez?

    Re: Things are looking better: The Pirates are next!!

    And here we go again. The two best Reds pitchers are going against Pittsburgh instead of Detroit. I see a trend developing.

    I know they're on a schedule, but it seems they messed it all up with the bottom three so why not mess it up with the top two in an effort to benefit the team. Claussen is now #5.

    Wow, so he is a great pitcher after four starts?!?

    Give me some time and I can go back and find a ton of your posts that I can bump to the top and make you look rather ignorant. Instead I will be the better man and just let it slide.

    Did I say he was.

    Why are you so confident in him if he 'stinks' though?

    Because he is facing Victor Santos. A game the Reds should win no matter who is pitching for us.

    Thank God We Play The Pirates

    Sorry Pirates fans.. but these Redlegs could use some W's. Reds offense has been vacant the past few games and could benifit from playing Pittsburg. I predict 2 out of 3 and regaining 1st place!

    The way the offense has been struggling, I would just be happy with a win tonight to start.
    If you think small, you'll go nowhere in life.
