    If there's ever a time to get injured during the season, this is it. I'm glad Maloney will get a chance. It's going to be VERY interesting to see what this rotation looks like coming out of the break.

    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.

    People are going to be pitching for jobs the next couple weeks with Volquez and Harang coming back shortly after the break.

    This should make a lot of Reds' southpaws available for the series in Philly.

    I probably would have started Micah Owings tonight and brought up Maloney for Philadelphia.

    Mets have a heavily righty lineup and pitching a lefty like Maloney is asking for trouble.

    He'll be helped by the big ballpark, but the Mets lineup is a bad matchup for him.

    I like the Owings idea....but the bullpen has pitched 14 innings in the last 4 games.....If he got rocked early it could be a disaster.

    Maloney will pitch Sunday in Philly, too.

    Maloney will pitch against the Phillies on Sunday.

    If you pitched Owings tonight and used Maloney against the Phillies, which one of our RH starters (Cueto or Leake) did you want to miss a start?

    Matchups are great, but starting Owings against anyone is likely not a good idea.

    You can never have enough pitching. Right now Maloney, Wood, and Leake. Who would have thought. I did see Maloney at the only game I sent too in Louisville and he looked very good. I think he gave up like only 1 hit through 7, but I forgot his line as the bats got no hit that night. It was a very boring game.
    And This One Belongs to the REDS!!!

    There are no off-days, nobody misses a start.

    Reds have six games before the all-star break. I'd go with:

    Owings, Arroyo, Cueto, Leake, Wood, Maloney.

    As for Owings, he's been ok of late. I'd prefer throwing him for five or six innings tonight. Hopefully Maloney will have his stuff tonight and prove me wrong. Hope he does.

    Owings probably isn't ready to go deep into a game after only pitching about 2-3 innings when he does pitch.

    I thought Volquez was going to start one game before the all-star break?

    It looks like they're going to wait now. They don't feel he's quite ready.

    So who feels comfortable with this rotation the second half?
