    vs. Thomas Diamond (0-1, 4.50)

    Wowza. I'll probably do some PBP.

    Super Sunday Special is an apt description. But watch...we'll light 'em up. I'm gonna say 10-2 win.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Atleast the lineup is full of "pop".

    If they can get some good swings in they'll be able to do some damage... Wonders how the wind is blowing today....

    With Cincy up 2-0 in the series I could see this one from a mile away. No scientific evidence, but they seem to lighten up on the opposition when it the series is in the bag.

    In actuality it is just Rolen and BP off, with BP needing a break after getting banged up yesterday. Would have thought Stubbs would get in there also.

    Really, Rolen is the only one with a day off. PHillips is nursing an injury, Heisey is now the everyday CF.

    Thought Dusty may have rewarded Stubbs stellar day yesterday with some burn today. Heisey in LF and Stubbs in CF would be my only adjustment. Looking for Cisco to have a big day, all this kid does is hit.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    I'm 60 miles west and it's still raining here. I think it's going to be awhile.

    Just got a tweet of a 2:30 start time. Only a 10 minute delay if that comes to pass.

    Taking the tarp off. I've got a good feeling. In spite of the lineup, the Reds will roll and go home to meet the Cards on a high.
