    Reds vs. Giants - National League Division Series

    Since it's official I figure we can start a thread regarding the Giants NLDS matchup.

    I predict a low scoring, pitching dominated series. It is imperative that the Reds come home no worse than 1-1. If they do they will win the series.

    GO REDS!

    Still pissed that Dusty isn't going with Homer over Arroyo in game two, I hope if works out for him but not liking it one bit. Would be nice for him and us to knock off his old team and advance to the NLCS.

    I am not comfortable with Arroyo going in the 2nd game. I think it should be Latos. And what happens if Cueto loses game one? Does Dusty stick by his guns and start Arroyo in game 2? That could be playoff suicide.

    I would have went Mat in game two if he wasn't going to take advantage of Homer being one of the best road pitchers in majors this year.

    Anyone who thinks this is not the best matchup for the Reds is just crazy. I'm glad

    well i dont where you came up w/ that. any visual proof or case studies? They just beat STL last nite. They would burn a pitcher in th eplay in game and are the weakest of the playoff bunch.

    I'm the least comfortable playing a team we've faced 15+ times in a single season. Although it goes both ways, the Cardinals can scout us very well because of how many times they've faced our pitching/hitters. I don't want to give any team that kind of opportunity even if it means we also get one of the same kind.

    Plus, look at their batting order; it's littered with ~.300+ hitters.
    There are only two seasons - Winter and Baseball.

    If we lose today the Cards will have won 4 of 5 series and all of our pitchers have terrible numbers against them. Burning a SP in the WC game doesn't hurt them one bit since that guy will make around his same projected start in DS.

    Their rotation was going to be around this regardless
    Wainwright-Wainwright
    Carpenter-Garcia
    Lohse-Carpenter
    Garcia-Lohse
    Wainwright-Wainwright

    When the Reds get behind man, there is all most no hope if they are behind by 2 or 3 runs in a important game. We have all seen, Philips,Bruce,Rolen,Stubbs, and even Votto swing full out at terrible pitches and it has gotten them into deep trouble this year. So far there has been no adjustment for that. If they don't watch it, it will bite them in the behind. Homer's are over-rated, just make good contact,get on base, and score!

    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.
