Johnny Cueto vs. Dillon Gee

Complete Coverage >



The Reds have had a couple of tough decisions go their way, but I'm still optimistic that it's not as bad as it feels. The beginning of the season always has high expectations attached, but when a team doesn't jump out to a hot start, it feels like we waited the entire offseason for nothing. Let's remind ourselves that it's only April 5, and beat the Mets today.

The Reds have Johnny Cueto on the hill, who comes off a hard luck season debut against St. Louis on Monday. He'll face Mets ace Dillon Gee, who gave up 4 runs in 6 2/3 innings against Washington on Opening Day.

The bullpen is pretty well rested, especially Sam LeCure, who was reportedly being "saved" for the end of the game last night. That's Dustyball if I've ever heard it.
