    All series talk goes in here. Non series talk goes somewhere else. No PVP that can be found from other sources if you need it. All games are broadcast on Root Sports unless otherwise noted.

    6-17 John Lamb, LHP vs. Lance McCullers, RHP 7:10

    6-18 Cody Reed, LHP vs. Dallas Keuchel, LHP 3:10

    6-19 Brandon Finnegan, LHP vs. Mike Fiers, RHP 1:10

    Man I thought they called up AJ Reed and I went to look for the thread on it and wondered why that wasn't a bigger deal.

    Does Votto follow Prince Fielder's lead and destroy the Astros while sucking against the rest of the league? He has a history of crushing at MMP....

    Would be really sweet to be at .500 when we go to bed Sunday night.

    So why did Worth get called up if he's going to sit the first time the Astros go against a lefty?

    Need a sweep here, only 5 back in the WC but we'd still need to jump 7 teams to get that second spot. One series at a time, but it needs to start now.

    I agree with HInch, lefties hit over .310 against Lamb and Valbuena is hitting a lot.

    Now, to my beloved pest, remember when i said I would use Marwin hitting second in our lineup and of course, he trashed me???? Well, look whose hitting second tonight, Go Marwin, show my beloved pest your are the man!!!!!!

    I love Marwin hitting high in the order vs LHP. I don't know who your beloved pest is, but yea he should want Marwin in there vs LHP too. If you want to count on Marwin to be a full time 2 hole hitter vs RHP also, your team is going to need to have a really good bottom of the order more than likely

    Sorry about your balls

    Barry Larkin used to kill the Stros (he killed everybody though). I remember hating Hal Morris too. Sabo, Eric Davis, Jose Rijo, Jr Griffey, Charlton/Myers/Dibble, Sean Casey, Adam Dunn....
