    So relieved to see no Cairo in there today. I really thought there was an 80% chance Cairo would be starting for Rolen. I would really like to see Valaika up here in Cairo's spot to give Phillips one day off every week and to spell Rolen. God knows Rolen needs days off with his back, but I just hate to see Cairo in there.

    Tomorrow is an off day so Rolen will still get some rest. Scott and Joey both hit very well off Duke (and they didn't play the last time the Reds faced him) so it probably made Dusty very happy that he could write their names on the lineup card this time, LOL

    Time for the brooms guys....let's get the sweep!

    I would have like to see Heisey get another start, back to back starts if you will. Who I would sit, I'm not sure, but I would have liked to have seen it.

    Anyhoo, latest radar seems to indicate that rain will be arriving in Pittsburgh around 4:00, so they should be able to get this in unless it goes extra innings. Still it wouldn't hurt Homer to take a cue from Leake and Cueto and throw strikes, working quickly.

    Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but I think Dusty really, really wants a sweep here. I was 100% sure Rolen was getting the day off today, but he isn't...kudos for keeping him in there.

    I also wouldn't have minded if Heisey got another start today, but not upset he isn't either. Let's break out the brooms today!



    Oh and random question for y'all: It's about 35 degrees here in Denver and Halladay is on the mound for the Phillies about 1 mile from my house when they take the field in about 90 mins. He's from here and it's his first start ever in his hometown. Do I go and brave the rain/snow/cold or stay home all warm and cozy?

    SirFelix-I'd grab a blanket/snuggie/coat...whatever you prefer...and head out to that game today if I were you. Halladay is an incredible pitcher and I love watching him work in games provided he's not pitching against the Reds at the time.

    The Pirates are televising it. So you would need Extra Innings or live in the Pittsburgh market to see it.
