    Especially since St. Louis will be throwing Carpenter, Garcia, and Wainwright against the Reds. A sweep with those starters is close to impossible.

    As for the Cubs, Wells vs. Volquez looks like a tough win. Volquez is all over the place, and Wells baffled the Reds last time he faced them. The other two games should be in the Reds favor, but who knows what Gorzelanny or Arroyo shows up Friday.

    If we sweep against that rotation I'm gonna go ahead and order my World Series tickets!

Sure would like to put some space between us and the Cardinals before that trip. And sweeping the Cubs would be a great start.
    The Reds are 4-5 in games where the Reds were looking for the sweep (1 of those wins was a 2 game sweep of the Brewers). 0-2 since the break, so maybe that is why is stands out right now.

    Thanks. My memory isn't what it once was.

    Hopefully we can bump that up to 5-5 soon. And 6-5.

    Winning 2 of 3 should always be the goal. If you do that day in and day out you're going to do well each and every year. Simple as that.

    Sweeps are nice but they are hard to come by. I never expect them.
    I hate the Cardinals. I hate the Cubs.
    Let's. Go. Reds.

    Winning 2 out of 3 on the road is always a good thing. As mentioned above, the Cubs have plenty of talent and a manager who is retiring at the end of the year. I mean, if we didn't sweep Pittsburgh what are the chances of doing so in Chicago?
    Remember, you're unique.....just like everybody else.

    Since we play them on a Sunday, that would be NO. Dusty will rest half the starters and we will be lucky to score 1 or 2 runs...
