well Brantley it looks like its going to happen
As long as their Starting Pitching holds up the Pirates will win the division
That was ridiculously easy.
Pirates simply look better than the Reds. Starts with a manager who has a clue. They take better at bats. They have better starting pitching. And I think overall they have a better bullpen.
Arredondo is still pitching well.
I understand the Pirates are going to win this series. I'm not about to jump to conclusions that they are going to win the division based on 1 series in June in which the didn't even sweep.
While we weren't looking the Cardinals took the lead. 3-2.
If they win the division it will be because the Reds and the Cards totally underachieved.
Hanrahan getting ready. Reds will send up Ludwick, Mesoraco and Valdez/Negron/Hanigan.
With Stubbs out, Reds are playing with a 1-man bench.
You can't count Cairo, Valdez, or Negron.
And somewhere, Jocketty slumbers.
