    Cardinals have not listed starters yet. Unless the Cardinals have a rainout before the Reds series they will avoid Garcia this time as he is scheduled to pitch Thursday. Carpenter should go on Sunday.

    The Reds starters will be Arroyo Friday, Cueto Saturday and Wood Sunday

    I bet they shift their rotation to have Garcia face us. They did it every single time last year.

    Cubs had Carp at 35 pitches int he 1st....... walks Castro on 4...then G Soto swings at a pitch at his head almost, inside....I kid you not...it was horrible AB and he pops it up.

    13 hits in 7 innings and all the Cubs could do was let him pitch into the 7th...and only score 4 runs.

    Astros are turning off the lights while Jim Day is interviewing Bailey on the sidelines.

    Which is now identical to Bailey's ERA! Weird.
    Bailey is also only one win behind the team leaders Arroyo, Volquez, and Leake who have 3 each.

    Of all the pitchers on the Reds staff, Bailey is probably the one I root for the most. For me, he represents the first true organization-arm that broke the trend of awful starting pitching development in Cincinnati. He represents, for me, the long journey away from watching guys like Chris Gruler, Thomas Pauley, Richie Gardner et. al. exploding on their way through the minors.

    I really hope Bailey puts it all together this year and can stay at the top of the Reds rotation for a long time.

    The guy had thrown 13 balls and 3 strikes. He got to face a few batters, and he hadn't gotten an out in the last 6 batters he's faced. He can't be trusted right now, and it almost cost the Reds.

    Even if the next guy hit a GS it's still 7-4 and I doubt the Astros would be lucky enough to score another run.

    I am not happy either......and hope that Price figures out what is wrong ...but Baker is in a tough position not to get down on the guy ...while not letting the game get away.

    4-0 and he probably only gets 2 batters at best.

    I called this one to my daughter at the game. I actually said he'd hit the big budweiser sign in right but that I might be asking for a bit much. So he hit it a bit lower. :O)

    One other highlight of the night that it looks like many here missed. Towards the end of the game, after a ground ball thrown to Votto at first base, Joey then proceeds to start to throw the ball around the horn. He slings it to Renteria...the problem, there was an Astro runner on third base. As soon as Joey threw it he knew. The great thing was Phillips...he was grinning from ear to ear and ribbing Joey quite a bit. Votto was quite embarrassed. Funny stuff. Brandon's hilarious.

    Last thing (besides the Cuban Missile Crisis...good lord he was HORRID) was Homer...he looked phenomenal. Just in total command and a pleasure to watch.

    It all comes down to putting that stuff where you want it on a consistent basis.

    Edinson and Homer have great stuff, command of that stuff has been the question so far for both of them.

    If either or both of them gain control of their stuff... Watch Out NL Central.

    Agreed. IMHO Leake, Chapman and LeCure should be in Louisville starting every five days, Let these guys learn how to pitch in AAA by increasing their pitch counts and innings pitched. Middle Relievers are very volatile and no where near as hard to find as Starters. If Walt doesn't like what he sees, AAA starters have more trade value than middle or long relievers.
