Keep it a Rivalry

The Cardinals are in town and whenever the Reds and Cardinals get together, it’s an important couple of games. Anytime they play, it’s a big series. Right now, the Cardinals are the hunted and the Reds are the hunter. It looks like St. Louis is going to be punching back a little bit more than we all anticipated when this season began.

Tonight I’m heading down to the park with good buddy from work. There aren’t many games at my age that you are excited to go and see, but legitimately; I cannot wait to watch these next three games.

The last time I was in Cincinnati to see Reds/Cardinals was about a year ago (tomorrow it will be one year) and the Cardinals hung on for their only win of the series. The guy I’m going to the game with from work tonight is a Cardinals fan; so hopefully I get in two good hours of ribbing on him on the way home.

With Kyle Lohse and Bunny Arroyo on the bump tonight, I think we could see some bombs leave the yard. Should be mind kind of ballgame.

ESPN SweetSpot had a really nice write-up on the Reds rotation today. Check it out for some good pre-game reading.
