    Predict the Cleveland Series

    Tonight kicks off a three games against cross-state "rival" Cleveland. The Reds are coming off one of the most embarrassing losses in recent franchise history. The Indians were routed by the Royals 9-3 on Thursady.

    Here are the pitching matchups:

    FRIDAY: Arroyo v. Westbrook
    SATURDAY: Cueto v. Carmona
    SUNDAY: Bailey v. Huff

    Predict the outcome of the series.

    I predict the Indians suck, but if they win 2 games in their own park there will be a bunch of posts about how soon football training camp starts.

    Reds coming in on a hot streak (despite yesterday's-- ugh) against a weak team, with a vengeance after yesterday. All 3 pitching match-ups favor the Reds, IMO.

    I think the Cueto Carmona match up favors the Tribe.

    Re: Predict the Cleveland Series

    BTW, since it doesn't deserve it's own thread at all, why are the Reds playing the Royals again this year???

    Re: Predict the Cleveland Series

    I predicted that we lose 2 of 3. I think we lose tonight, somehow win tomorrow against Carmona, and lose Sunday against the lefty Huff, who has better stuff then his record would indicate.

    Contrary to popular opinion, the Reds are playing pretty well. They'll take 2 of 3.

    Re: Predict the Cleveland Series

    I'll be optimistic and say the Reds win two of three. The Indians just aren't good at all and if they can't win two things may not be as good as we had hoped for this season.

    Re: Predict the Cleveland Series

    I think 2 out of 3 is likely if not a sweep.

    Unless the Reds have been sitting on couches or reading Field and Stream.

    I predict the Indians take two of three, and maybe sweep. But I'll go with two of three. I'd love to see the Reds pull off the sweep, though.

    Re: Predict the Cleveland Series

    Reds are the better team. Sweeps are unlikely. Reds win 2-1.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I'd say a sweep but I think they'll lose to Huff. But Bailey will have a good game

    I guess the same reason they played the Blue Jays for the 2nd time in a row last year

    Re: Predict the Cleveland Series

    I actually see the Reds handling the Indians. The Indians have absolutely no power in their lineup. Choo is really the only guy on their team that scares me. I bet we outscore them by 10+ runs this weekend.
