    Yankees @ Reds (5/8-5/9)

    The ML best 20-9 New York Yankees come to down to close out the Reds 9 game home stand with a 2 game tilt to begin the week. The Yankees are coming off a sweep of the Cubs including an 18 inning marathon game last night.

    Pitching matchups:

    Tonight: Tanaka vs. Davis
    Tuesday: Sabathia vs. Adleman

    Do professional baseball players get tired after a game last night and then having to travel?

    Hope the Reds bats stay hot.

    It will be interesting seeing Aaron Judge up close. I hope he doesn't get too comfortable with GABP.

    Why do you feel that way? I believe tomorrow is by far the Reds best chance given the pitching matchups.

    That's what I was thinking as well.

    I'm with you. I get the Yankees just played an 18 inning game, but they're facing Rookie Davis. I imagine they'll score at least 6 runs off him.

    Sabathia is a shell of what he used to be. I like the Reds chances tomorrow night. Tonight, not so much.

    What time did the Yanks game end last night? 2 a.m. eastern time? They probably hopped on a flight from Chicago to Cincinnati around 3 a.m., landed in Cincinnati shortly before 4 a.m., and arrived at their hotel around 4:30 a.m.

    See post #10. They are professionals, but also human. Hope the Reds can take care of business both nights.

    Consdering these guys aren't getting "off work" till after 11 most night I don't think it will have that big of an impact. I think 2-3AM bedtime on a regular basis isn't that crazy for a lot of these guys.

    @ZachENQ

    Entering today, Reds are 4th in 1st-inning runs in NL (23), but 14th in 1st-inning hits (27). Difference: 11 steals, 7 more than next team
