A lefty for the Cubs, on getaway day, during a day game after a night game? I'm not excited to see the lineup today.

The Cubs have been hot at the plate this series, so Volquez has his work cut out for him. The Reds desperately need to get out of town with a win today. Six straight losses will make for a long plane ride home tonight.

Oh, and the Reds must hate this baby:

They are the ones who can end her suffering. It's up to you, Reds players. We don't like doing it, but it's necessary. Until you learn to win, this baby must pay the price.
