Chad Billingsley (9-7, 3.66) vs Johnny Cueto (11-3, 3.38).
The Reds are rolling, riding a seven-game winning streak (and a 4.5 game lead in the Central), after last night's 3-1 win. Meanwhile, the Dodgers have floundered since the All-Star Break, driven partially by Vicente Padilla, Manny Ramirez, Jeff Weaver, and Rafael Furcal all sitting on the DL, all having trouble holding back the years. And Joe Torre has to play with the few cards he's been dealt; we're not getting any 11th hour waiver-wire help, since money’s too tight (to mention).
I’d love to think we could hold the Cincinnati “juggernaut” back, but I have a feeling we will be the ones ending up simply red. Hey, if you don’t know this team by now, you will never ever ever know them.
