    Re: Next up, Milwaukee. (and some Cubs)

    I actually like our chances the best in the last 2 games. Wandy was tough at home last year and, like Schmidty said Oswalt owns the Reds. I'll take 2 of 4 but think 3 of 4 is not out of the question.

    I really don't like our chances against Oswalt or Wandy Rodriguez. I think Mohler is a must win, he is on his last legs and a run of the mill righty we should handle. Hampton is a wildcard game to a degree.... but I don't like us starting the series with Rodriguez and Oswalt two guys who always seem to have our number.

    Yeah Wandy scares me. If I remember right he has some pretty sick home road splits. I just like the fact that we have Harang going and that Houston's offense has been terrible thus far.

    They always seem to get hot against us though.

    Mohler is on the DL, so we wont get him.

    Any idea as to who is taking his place? I don't have much knowledge on the Astros minor league system.

    Still listed as TBD.

    Might as well keep this thread up. We've won both series since it was started and I'm a superstitious guy.

    Tough slate, there. Our staff will need to keep it close.

    Good road trip so far, though!
    I'm not cool enough to have a good signature

    VERY tough slate there. And it doesnt get easier in Atlanta this weekend--Vazquez on Friday and Lowe on Saturday. The next five pitchers we face all have nasty stuff.

    If we can go 2-3 over the next 5, I would be pretty pleased.

    Harden - Biggest Question Mark game on the slate in my opinion. Can Owings Rebound against a great lineup? Can we continue to draw walks against Harden? Get to the pen early and hopefully win late?

    Lilly - Tough lefty with no one from the right side that has been really impressive so far in our lineup. I think this game will be the Cubbies.

    Zambrano - This game I like. If we can continue to take pitches and walks I think we can get to Zambrano. He's a hot head who loses his cool when guys get on base. Frustrate him and I think we got this game.
