There is a point of disrespect, and we think that the Reds have reached that point. The oddsmakers just aren’t giving the credit to this team that is deserved, and we definitely think that the MLB odds are skewed in favor of the Redbirds for all of the wrong reasons. Don’t get us wrong, as we do think that RHP Lance Lynn is a fantastic pitcher, and his statistics suggest that perhaps he should be the starter for the NL in the All-Star Game next month. However, RHP Bronson Arroyo is one of those guys that you don’t think about as a sneaky as could be pitcher. Arroyo threw eight shutout innings against the Colorado Rockies his last time out, and he now has three starts out of his last five in which he has thrown at least 6.2 innings of scoreless ball. There is no doubt whatsoever that Cincinnati is a great team at home, as the 22 wins on the season in the Queen City suggests just that. The only thing that hasn’t happened so far in this series for Manager Dusty Baker is that his offense hasn’t started to mash. If the team can get to Lynn just a bit in this one early, the floodgates might open up just a bit. You aren’t going to be able to keep this Cincinnati lineup down forever, and the time might be here for it to shine on Sunday.
