Johnny Cueto v. Francisco Liriano

Complete Coverage >

SBNation ate my first attempt at a preview.

Basically, the Reds have the chance to win their first series of the short season. All they have to do is get past archnemesis Francisco Liriano, ender of 2013, to do it.

The Cardinals serieses have been tense, but this one's been just weird. Anyways, this should be a fun businessperson's special. I for one can't wait for Hamilton to get on base against a lefty and for Ludwick to get to his Liriano-killin' ways and to get Cueto a win.
