2008 - Jason Marquis 9-8 4.46 1.40 82 55

2008 - Johnny Cueto 8-12 4.65 1.36 146 58

Johnny's quest for 10 wins continues. After missing a start because of pitching for the Reds, he's back and hopefully pitching for a super-cautious manager. I'd like him to get to 10 wins as much as the next guy, but I'd like him to get to 20 wins next season even more.

I don't know if you've noticed, but the offense has actually been performing very well over the last week. Granted it was mainly against the Giants and the Pirates, but a .317/.413/.552 batting line over a week of games isn't anything to be ashamed of. At least it makes the team much more interesting to watch.

This is the second to last time the Reds play the Cubs this season. Hopefully it's also the second to last time the Reds beat the Cubs this season.
