    I predict 2 out of 3 for the Reds. Wandy Rodriguez is not the same pitcher away from home and Volquez has to improve sometime.....right?? We could also see Cueto keep the game close against Oswalt and win another game late.

    The Bruce should be batting cleanup(I don't want to hear it Dusty) and BP should be given a day off
    EE should get a day off tomorrow.

    I think we definatly take 2 out of 3. Agreed if we can win tonight the brooms should come out. Forget Bruce batting 4th lets just take an automatic out everytime through the line up. Or do you think we can run the starting line ups out with two number three hitters?

    Yep, because we didn't win the last game he pitched in or anything.

    Unless he goes nine we can win. Their bullpen is nothing special.

    I think 1 out of 3 and a winning April.We should all be happy.

    I also said 1 out of 3 against the Brew Crew and the Cubs so I'll stick with that and hope for the same results.

    The reason we would lose tonight is not Oswalt, but if Cueto doesnt bring it like last time.

    Seriously, can't the laws of probability give us a break and let Oswalt lose this game?
