So today is a good day in my life because I turned in my senior thesis (only three more finals and two more final papers to go), but I think it will be a good day for all of us because GAB is our favorite place to play. We all know that Roy finds it almost impossible to lose, Berkman can't help but jack a bomb or two, minimum, and that Reds pitchers love to fall apart as we face them.
My prediction for tonight's game is that Oswalt shaves a run off his ERA, and that Cueto will take the run and add it to his.
The Astros need Oswalt to really eat some innings for them (preferably a minimum of seven) because Valverde is shelved, Brocail was shaky yesterday, and I can't think of a fresh arm that we have in the bull pen (kind of depressing to list that all out, on April 27th).
