It'll be interesting to see if we get this one in, as all reports I'm hearing seem to indicate that Ed Harris is turning off the sun a bit early for Jim Carrey's liking. There looks to be decent window from 6-9, so if the lightning holds off, the game should be fine, assuming it doesn't last too terribly long. If it starts raining, hopefully the Reds are winning and 5 innings have been played.

Johnny Cueto takes the hill today after being pushed back a start for a "stiff neck." Let's hope he just slept on it wrong, and it isn't a vestige of the arm problems he had coming out of Spring Training. Travis Wood did his best Edinson Volquez impression on the mound last night, giving up 4 runs in the first (then settling down to pitch 6 more scoreless), while the offense did it's best Edinson Volquez impression at the plate, mustering a paltry 4 hits before the 9th. Hopefully the boys will buck the trend of making below-average starting pitchers look like post-arm injury Henry Rowengartner when they face career minor leaguer Brian Gordon. Gordon, who started his first big league game last time out, pitched admirably against Texas, giving up 2 runs in 5.1 innings. The 32-year-old right-hander shouldn't pose a problem for the Reds, but then again, neither should Aneury Rodriguez or Marco Estrada.
