    Let's Rock N Roll: Fish coming to the GABP

    ah yes the famed Fish-Reds rivalry is about to heat up these next 3 days

    here's the pitching matchups:

    Monday: FLA: Badenhop (1-2, 6.31 ERA)
    CIN: Harang (1-5, 3.09 ERA)

    Absolute advantage to the Reds although Badenhop is coming off his first major league win. He's a sinker baller so that should bode well for him, but if he can't locate it early, the Reds will pound his otherwise mediocre stuff.

    Tuesday: FLA: Hendrickson (5-1, 3.56 ERA)
    CIN: Volquez (5-1, 1.06 ERA)

    Obviously the advantage again is here with the Reds. Hendrickson has pitched very well for the Marlins since having LASIK eye surgery. His job is to just keep the Marlins in each game and let the bats do the rest. Great chance Volquez strikes out 15, if he's not knocked out of the game by the 3rd.

    Wednesday: FLA: Nolasco (2-3, 5.35 ERA)
    CIN: No one listed yet

    Nolasco is coming off a great effort. He was hitting 96 on the gun his last time out. More than likely, this game will be the highest scoring of the 3.

    Thursday: FLA: Miller (3-2, 6.52 ERA)
    CIN: Arroyo (2-4, 7.14 ERA)

    Andrew Miller has improved on each of his last 3 outings, going 7 scoreless his last time out against the Nationals.

    Marlins Notes
    LF Josh Willingham will not be ready for the series. Still on the DL with back spasms. He was hitting .341/.406/.637 when he went on the DL.

    1B Mike Jacobs has missed the past few games with a thumb issue. He could be back for the series. He's currently hitting .271/.295/.607

    Dan Uggla has gotten extremely hot recently, and is now hitting .271/.349/.571 with a team leading 10 hr after two on Sunday

    Jorge Cantu and Luis Gonzalez (Willingham's replacement) are both hitting very well and Jeremy Hermida has started to come around too. The Marlins have 2 glaring holes in the lineup (even with Willingham and Jacobs out). Those two being CF (Amezaga/Ross) and C (Treanor/Rabelo). Amezaga and Ross occasionally add to the offense, but the two catchers do not.

    The Marlins bullpen has been flat out awesome.

    Good luck these next 3.
