    Cubs have 4-5 pretty decent bats.

    I predict an ugly night for Travis Wood. Just saw him last Saturday, and will likely not pitch his best game of the year tonight. And, we might need it with Arroyo on the hill.

    Well to be the contrarian, Travis did pretty well for four innings. I expect anohter dogfight with Bronson on the mound. If we get good Bronson, we're good. If not, just like last night, we struggle. Hope for the best.

    My prediction is based on the fact he pitched well last week. It is very common to get lit up second time through when you face a team back to back. Same could go for Arroyo too, but he wasn't pitching as well as Wood was last time.

    Just throwing it out there for those considering who to put their sawbuck on tonight.

    That's about as good a lineup and order as you can make with Votto on the shelf. Heck, even acknowledging Frazier in front of Rolen. Kudos Dusty.

    So it's set, Redmond will start the second game of the DH. Fay posted a small article about this. This one line just caught my eye. I love this.

    Redmond was in the clubhouse Friday, which happened to be team picture day.
    “He asked me if it was all right to be in the picture,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “I said, ‘Yeah, you’re on the team.’ You’re just not going to stay very long.”
    That's totally got a little kid feel to it. "I'm actually in a big league clubhouse. Nobody's gonna believe me. Hey! Can I be in the picture too?!?" :O)

    It's not like the Reds haven't seen Travis Wood enough.

    Oh dear god, a George Grande and Jeff Brantley announce duo.
    "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."

    In 2012, Wood has already given up 18 HRs, and Arroyo 20. How many tonight?

    I'll guess five; Three for the Reds, two for the Cubs.
