Chicago-Cincinnati: Cubs Return Home to Face Reds

Harry PavlidisSenior Analyst IApril 13, 2008

After a six game, seven day swing through Pennsylvania, the Cubs start a three game series against the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday.

The first two home night games of the season will kick off the homestand. The Pirates and the Mets are up next.

For the next few days, I'll have a chance to focus on the Cubs' PITCHf/x numbers, as Doug Gray at Reds Pitch f/x has the Reds well covered.

Here are some links to the Reds' probable pitchers.

Aaron Harang—one of the best, and most under-rated pitchers in the National League.

Josh Fogg—the former Pirate and Rockie has a mixed record against the Cubs.

Edinson Volquez—a quality young starter, came over in the Josh Hamilton trade with Texas.
