Default Angels/Reds

OK football season ended in a fiery crash today so time to bring out my broom and prepare for my Halos opening series sweep of the Reds!

Seriously is Champman starting opening day or do they know? That is a big risk for the Reds because he was lights out as a closer. Will be interesting to see if hecan stay healthy and maintain that velocity throughout the season as a starter.

If he does start opening day then my boys better start swinging now because he throws hard.

Cueto will start opening day. The rest of the rotation order is interesting because of the good depth. Latos number 2. Homer number 3. Arroyo number 4. And perhaps Chapman as the 5th starter to ease in his arm.That's how I'll guess they will line up.

Cueto is the opening day starter lol! Look up Cueto's numbers, dude is a top 3 pitcher in the NL. Cueto has earned the right to be the opening day starter for many years to come. Our rotation is already very sturdy and dependable. Chapman putting it together as a starter will only make things better. We do have a solid, but not spectacular option at closer to replace him (Broxton)

Here's to my Redlegs sending your angels to heaven

Yeah I forgot about him being your #1...more familiar with AL. You guys are lucky because you will not have to face Blanton!
