3-unit Play #906 Cincinnati Reds over Pittsburgh Pirates (7:10pm EST) The Cincinnati Reds host the Pittsburgh Pirates in the first of three games on Monday night. Both teams are off to a slow start this season with the Reds at 4-8 and the Pirates at 6-6. The Reds have had lots of problems plating runs, but they busted out with 12 runs yesterday against the Rays. That could be the breakthrough they needed to get things going finally. They'll go up against southpaw Wandy Rodriguez in this one. The 35-year old has had a nice career, but he's shown some signs of wearing down over the last year or so and I'm not sure he is someone you can count on in every start. The Reds go with Homer Bailey, who is entering his prime at nearly 28 years old. Bailey had the best year of his career in 2013 and signed a big contract in the off-season as a reward. The Reds think he has ace potential and they could be right. Bailey should continue to get better and I look for more consistency this season. The Pirates lineup isn't particularly intimidating and they won't get career year kind of production from as many guys as they did last year. The Reds are the better overall team and the price is right here at home.
