    Chappy's up.

    Ludwick pinch-hit for Cueto and grounded into a fielders choice. 5-2 Reds after eight innings.

    Chapman coming in to pitch the 9th.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Eh. Oh well. Just me nitpicking.

    Did everyone see Castro gets a 7 year 60 million dollar extension? A lot of money if you ask me for a guy that isn't a great defender and quite frankly doesn't seem into the game very often.

    If you have the Cubs money though it's a good deal to lock him up.

    I'm not sure that I would. I see the argument for keeping him. But if I'm a Cubs fan I'd probably prefer they trade him for a package of young talent.

    Castro's a pretty talented player.

    2-2 on Vitters. Chapman needs to get him with Soriano and Castro up next.

    My biggest beef with Baker... The three run lead save. These are the ones you give to Broxton, Marshall, even Ondrusek... okay, maybe not Ondrusek, but you get my point. Especially with 4 games in three days.

    Absolutely no need to use Chapman here.

    I think with Cueto having started, this is the one Dusty wants locked down with Chapman.

    They won't need Chapman in the second game because Todd Freakin' Redmond is going to pitch a complete game shutout.

    LOL, I completely disagree.

    You don't mess around in winning ballgames. You put them away.

    Particularly this game with another one tonight. You don't want trouble here.

    Agree with Dusty here.

    Game 2 is against a lefty that they already saw once. Chances are good the offense can make game 2 a laugher if Redmond and the rest of the boys can do well, Probably wants to save the longer guys for Redmond's start. I'd guess Redmond will have a short leash with Lecure and Simon ready to go quickly.
