We'll probably have our hands full tonight as Cueto has been solid all year.  Lynn has also been dealing as of late so hopefully we can end up with a sweep of the Reds.

From listening to the Reds broadcasters it almost sounds as if they are expecting bad things to happen.  After last night's loss they basically said they were putting all their hopes in Cueto to stop the bad stretch.

And I thought it was interesting to see Dan McLaughlin on the Reds pre-game with Thom Brennaman on Monday night.  They were both talking about the Reds and Cardinals, interesting to see announcers from other teams get together and have a discussion like that.  Two of the better young announcers in the game if you ask me.

This series has been a lot of fun so far and only now are we getting to the marquee matchup. I'm pretty excited for it.

Toronto leads Milwaukee 7-5 in the bottom of the 7th.  Maybe the BlueJays will do us a favor today.

I thought Descalso would start tonight.  With his hot bat this month, Matheny's "you earned it kid" attitude towards playing time, Wong's struggles on this homestand, and DD's couple of hits against Cueto it looked like a sure thing.

2 for 8....that has about as much meaning to me as DD's gold glove nomination at 3B in whatever year that was....

I hope the hits had nothing to do with it.

More a case of Wong being a little cold lately and needing a day off.  With the off-day tomorrow, that gives him two days off.

I like Jay hitting in the two spot. Descalso deserves this start. Make the most of it.

I hope shortening Oscar's swing is on this winter's to-do list.  It is not possible for him to reach his potential as an ML hitter with that ridiculous swing.  He looks like a 12 year old who thinks he is Babe Ruth.

Lance Lynn would like me to say, "hey guys, just trying to get a couple of lower end Cy votes..... and what do you think about me now, to those of you who wanted to trade me?"

Walking into this year I figured that Lynn wasn't long for the Cards with the crunch of pitchers.  His taking it to the next level this year is maybe the biggest good news for the Cards.

Things going well. Taveras moves from first to third on a double by Descalso. Taveras is deceptively slow.

Good to see Descalso making some huge contributions.
