Johnny Cueto vs. David Price

Complete Coverage >

For possibly the only series of the year for him, Ryan Hanigan is the focal point of this series right now. He makes his return to Cincinnati tonight, and whether you think he was underrated or overrated or think he's going to have a good beat on our hitters or pitchers, I really hope the fans in Cincinnati treat him right this weekend.

Tonight sees as good of a pitcher's duel as we've seen all year, as Johnny Cueto is coming off of two great starts to begin his 2014 campaign. His last was in New York, where he struck out 9 in 7 innings of 2-run ball.

He'll face off against Rays ace David Price, whose team has won both of the games he's started so far. Price was a little shaky in his last game against Texas, giving up 4 runs in 6 innings. This'll be his first road start of the season, and his first ever in Cincinnati.

The off day means that the bullpen is rested, especially Sam LeCure, who has probably been in a coma since the end of March.

Go Reds! They're my favorite team!
