Alfredo Simon v. John Lackey


Even after two horrendous bullpen meltdowns in the first 7 games of the season... the Reds are 5-2.

The Reds try to right the ship against John Lackey at another night game in Chicago. The Cubs had an opening day crowd there on Monday, so hopefully they won't be as much of a factor tonight. I don't think BCB has a Game 2 outing, so we don't have to worry about them singlehandedly willing the team to a win like the RRs did a week ago.

Big Pasta goes for the Redlegs, after a strong debut on Friday.

Go Reds! They're my favorite team!
