    I will say we have gotten to him both games he has pitched against us this year, but I really thought we would do more against maddux last night so what do I know.

    Oh ye of little faith...

    If the Reds can get a run or two off of him early, and they've had success in that vein before IIRC, Zambrano'll go all nutso-crazy, as usual, and the Redlegs'll take the game.

    The key to beating Zambrano is keeping your cool. He doesn't bend, only breaks. I think.

    They are trying, they just stink. In baseball, failure does not equal lack of effort.

    I simply refuse to believe the Cubs are good enough to sweep anyone.

    Does refusing to believe something actually work? If so, I refuse to believe Rick White is a horrible pitcher. :

    The Reds could easily go out and win 7-5.

    Getting swept by the cubs would be a sign that it's time to quit for the year

    No no no, it would mean that they lost 3 games in a row to a bad team and there are over 100 games left.

    Time to fold up shop?? No.

    Time to seriously look at the composition of this team?? Yes.

    I would have also said you cannot lose 2 of 3 to this team either, but they have.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Re: Get Ready for the sweep

    Does the fact that Milton is starting tonight help or hurt the Reds in avoiding the sweep?

    It all depends on if the Reds offense decides to show up.
    After scoring 3 runs yesterday they might be to tired to score today.

    Precisely.

    The Cubs are bad, but the Reds will rubbing elbows with them in no time. This isn't last year's great offensive squad anymore; they're a bad pitching team and a mediocre hitting team.

    This team has shown its arse; and it ain't pretty. I will be stunned--downright apoplectic--if the Reds win more than last year's 73 wins.
