    Yeah, Price against Cueto is a better matchup on paper for the Reds than Wednesday's Shields vs. Volquez affair. I'm not caring for that one since Shields has three consecutive complete games to his name and has given up two total runs in that time.

    Let's hope! Volquez will probably put that number on the board in the first lol

    For the record, Fay was saying Lecure's WHIP is below 1.00, and he was correct. Sam's numbers are very solid.

    Nice outing from Leake again tonight. I'm slowly starting to change my opinion on him. Keep proving me wrong Mike!

    After reading this thread I now know why I never watch ESPN games. Sounded pretty brutal last night.
    Good thing the Cubs showed up in Rays uniforms. They were pretty brutal themselves. Especially Longoria. He played like he celebrated his two HR's from the night before just a little too much.
    Leake was very good. He seemed to keep the Rays off balance most of the night. Keep playing Gomes while you have that lightening in a bottle. It won't last long.
    Better win tonight with Cueto on the mound. Tomorrow could be a long afternoon.

    That's a pretty unfair statement IMO. The Pirates didn't get "help" from us. They beat us. Plain and simple. They had VERY well pitched games against us...and while at the time people were moaning about the crappy pitchers going all Cy Young on us...they've since shown that they're simply having very good seasons on the mound. They're not a fluke. They're not contenders either really...just not the bottom-feeders we've grown accustomed to.
    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
