Well, I think you need to see it another way. I'm an avid Reds fan, but even bad Cub pitching is better than most decent Reds pitching. I mean did you witness what Lee did to them?
That was a poor managerial decision to even pitch to him with first base open and Burnitz on deck with 1 out. Stupidity if you ask me.
And Wagner should have been in as well. Plus, Weathers should be nowhere near a ML squad. The Cubs pitching is overrated, Maddux is average, Zambrano is a head case who is capable of getting lit up at any time if the ump ticks him off....Wood is never healthy and sometimes isn't even good when healthy, and Prior is a legit ace when healthy but you never know with him either. I'm not going to buy in to the hype.
