GIANTS PROBABLE: REDS PROBABLE:
Matt Morris (10-11, 4.57) Bronson Arroyo (11-9, 3.48)
It strikes me as something of a bad idea to have Arroyo go on short rest this late in the year, but I guess we'll see. The Reds are still operating in playoff mode, and you have to wonder how long they'll continue to bother.
That sounded incredibly morose, but taking today off has actually let the last two weeks sink in a bit, and I feel better for it. Now I suppose the Reds are in a race for .500 more than anything, and I'd like to see them get there. It'd be a step forward.
