    Personally, I am in agreement with pitching Eric Milton tonight as well.

    Honestly, I have a feeling the offensive outburst is going to continue tonight. I think we get Oswalt early and often.

    You may be right.

    While Oswalt seams to be all world against us, he's claerly not the ACe he once was. His K's are declining, and he's more hittable than he used to be. We beat him, I believe, for the first time last year.

    Let's continue that.

    I think Milton has hit that magic point where he starts to take some severe beatings. You could see the decline in what little stuff he has in the last outing and he was lucky to escape with only 3 Runs imo.

    It a degenerative thing and I think he's already used up the few decent outings he has left in him. You can literally see when he's going into pitching machine mode(unless your initials are JN), hope I'm wrong but I thought I saw it in his last start.

    The key tonight is going to be Oswalt's control, he already has 17 BB this year in 40 innings, hopefully the reds stay patient and make him throw strikes

    Hopefully Gonzalez will stay hot tonight too, he has pretty good numbers against Oswalt for a right handed batter

    You don't just throw in the towel everytime you don't have a good pitching matchup. That's why you play the games. Besides, what kind of message would that send to the rest of the team?

    Don't think of it as throwing in the towl. Think of it more as micro managaing of sorts.

    The Astros are a strange matchup for the Reds. The Reds starters can manhandle that team. The relievers, not so much.

    I think Lohse is very capable of handling this Astros lineup. I like the fact that they moved Oswalt up a day, at least with Lohse we have a chance of staying in the game even if the offense doesn't get it going against Oswalt.

    jerry really just loves to tinker with the lineup. He just can't help himself.

    I'm not disputing Lohse's ability. I'm more worried about Milton.

    The Reds had a chance to win in everyone of Milton's outings this year. They went to sleep for three of his starts and imploded on the other when we were down 4-3.
