    Its 1990 all over again- Reds @ Pirates game 1 Monday July 18, 2011

    At Pittsburgh, 7:05 p.m.:

    Stubbs 8,
    Cozart 6,
    Votto 3,
    Phillips 4,
    Bruce 9,
    Cairo 5,
    Lewis 7,
    Hernandez 2,
    Willis LHP.

    Pirates: Morton takes hill
    Charlie Morton will have the opportunity to earn his first win since June 15 when he goes to work Monday for the Pirates in the series opener.

    The right-hander (7-5, 3.80 ERA) endured a difficult month of June that prompted Hurdle to skip one of Morton's starts at the end of the month. The hurler went through a stretch from May 7-June 4 in which he did not allow more than two earned runs in an outing, but has since allowed three or more in four of his past five appearances.

    Morton has also struggled at home this year, going 2-4 with a 4.70 ERA in eight starts, compared to 5-1 with a 3.00 ERA in eight starts on the road.

    Scott Rolen is getting a second consecutive day of rest (shoulder/general soreness). Manager Dusty Baker said Rolen also did not get much rest over the All-Star break, since Rolen played in the game. Thus, another day off.

    Rolen will return to the lineup Tuesday, Baker said.

    Also, Chris Heisey would have started in left tonight but the Pirates flipped pitchers, with Morton going instead of McDonald. Baker thus went with Lewis in left and said Heisey will start Tuesday.

    Just like yesterday was a critical start for Homer, this is a pretty big start for Willis. If he pitches very well, the Reds will be less likely to chase another starter, and will have a valuable commodity down the road.

    Also nice to see Cairo instead of Rolen.

    Is this game going to get started on time? Looks like pretty rough weather on radar.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    I'm a little confused as to why Willis is starting ahead of Leake.

    What difference does it make?

    Leake starts tomorrow.

    George Grande and Sean Casey aka the happiest, smiling-est announce team ever.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Rolling out the C team with George Grande and Sean Casey tonight. Apparently none of the regulars wanted to touch this one.

    Bad omen. Both of them held court in the dark period. Not good. And to have to listen to Goody-Goody and the motor-mouthed hyena. Help us!

    FSN switching to poker, that's not a good sign. Looks like we're waiting a while.

    Rain has stopped in Pittsburgh, looking for a start around 8:00.

    Wow, volume sure to be turned down/off for this one (nothing to do with "happy go lucky" for me so much as just plain bad).
