Is it too early in the season to compare this year’s Marlins team with last year’s Astros team? The Marlins are bad. Of course I do not care if you are good or bad, I want the Reds to win. That is exactly what the Reds are going to do in this series! If you are like me, you want it to say W7 beside of the Reds in the standings after this series is over.
Of course the Reds can’t get to W7 without first getting to W5 and that is what the Reds will look to do tonight. Mat Latos has had some rough luck this season when it comes to wins and losses. His record is 0-0 despite his 3.26 earned run average in 3 starts. At the same time, his pitching couterpart Kevin Slowey is 0-2 for the season despite a 2.04 ERA. That may or may not be surprising when you consider the team Slowey has behind him.
So the Reds go for five in a row tonight at the ballpark. I’ll be sitting in attendance…watching my son in a talent show. I’ll be relying on members of the Nation to keep me updated of the score while I wait for my son to take the stage. Here’s to hoping my son and the Reds break a leg tonight. No wait! Too many injuries already. Let’s just stick with going. GO REDS!
