Cain vs. Latos


Tuesday 4/24, 7:10 PM ET at Great American Ball Park will be the first Giants vs. Reds series in 2012. Matt Cain will pitch for the Giants while Mat Latos pitches for the Reds. [Probables]

“Cain has thrown nine shutout innings in each of his last two starts, and he’s struck out 15 batters while only allowing four baserunners via walk and hit in that span.” [Source] [vs. Reds] [Career Stats] [Pitch f/x]

I am watching the double-header today with New York Mets vs. San Francisco Giants and from what I have seen so far, the Giants are hitting great and pitching even better. I had a good laugh when the announcers were talking about how bad Tim Lincecum is pitching. He allowed a lot of walks but got some great strikeouts also. They were very vocal on his control issues but I still thought he did pretty good in the first game of the two today. Lincecum went 5 innings allowing 4 hits, 1 run with 5 BB and 8 SO. [Source]

Mat Latos is looking to get his first win this season and hopefully he can go deeper into the game with some run support this time around. I think if the Reds can get some good runs for him to start the game he should be able to keep the game close in order to get his first win of 2012. [vs. Giants] [Career Stats] [Pitch F/X]

If only the front office could see into the future


When I look over this list it makes me wonder what if the Cincinnati Reds front office could have seen into the future. Would they have picked differently? One thing to note is that Joey Votto was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the 2nd round of the 2002 amateur draft.
