Jason Marquis v. John Lackey


The Reds play the Cardinals for the first time this season, on the weekend, with great weather. What more could you ask for?

The Reds have Jason Marquis set to make his Reds debut, and while it's ridiculous to me that I'm even typing that, the Reds must have seen something they liked in Goodyear or he wouldn't be here.

They'll face John Lackey, who the Reds saw 3 times last year with mixed results. The Reds knocked him around in one start, but he got the last laugh in his second to last start of the year.

Go Reds! They're my favorite team!
