    Reds vs. Pirates Pitching Match Ups

    4-11-08
    Edinson Volquez, RHP (1-0, 1.69) @ Paul Maholm, LHP (0-1, 9.00)
    LHP that allowed a GS in his first appearance, and struck out 9 in 5 innings. Doesn't look good for the Redlegs.

    4-12-08
    Bronson Arroyo, RHP (0-1, 5.91) @ Ian Snell, RHP (1-0, 3.75)
    BA hasn't pitched well against the Pirates in the past, and Snell hasn't pitched well against the Reds in the pass. Hopefully the Reds can pull this one out.

    4-13-08
    Johnny Cueto, RHP (1-0, 2.03) @ Tom Gorzelanny, LHP (0-1, 10.80)
    LHP that had control problems in his first two outings of the year. Hopefully he can continue with those issues against the Reds, but the Reds are known for being a slump buster for LHP on the rocks.


    All in all, I don't like the match ups and I think the Reds go 1-2 for the weekend series, even though the phenomenas are pitching. Hopefully I am wrong.

    Reds take two out of three, losing the Arroyo v. Snell game.

    I am excited that EE had a good game today, hopefully he can continue to climb out of his slump by facing a couple of Lefties.

    However I still don't see us beating two lefties in a 3 game span, we don't have a roster built for it.

    It may be a struggle, but if we continue to get this kind of starting pitching, the offense doesn't have to do a lot.

    I'm feeling pretty optimistic about the Reds right now. With Cueto and Voltron pitching I think they can win at least 2 out of 3. The offense looks like it's awake. I'll go out on a limb and say the Reds pick up the sweep.

    I'm predicting a sweep of the Pirates. Arroyo is due for a good game and Snell is due for a bad one. Plus, the Reds hit RHP pretty well and I think Griffey and Dunn are ready to break loose.

    Reds will be 9-4 after the weekend.

    I think we're definitely going to win this series, and maybe even sweep.

    Our pitching has been some of the best in the majors.

    I have a feeling we are going to run Mahalom out of the game after 4, he is just not good.

    So does Volquez get skipped now, or will he pitch on Saturday?

    Oh, by the way, Friday's game is a washout.

    If by washout you mean weather wise, it looks ok to me. http://www.accuweather.com/forecast-...y=1&hbhhour=19

    A wash or even match-up? IDK

    I really like those matchups and add to that the likelihood of the Reds offense finally breaking out, I think the brooms could definitely be in order.

    2 outta 3 seems very realistic. Snell is the true ace of the pirates staff and has always thrown well against us. If Arroyo pitches well a sweep could be very likely.
