Cincinnati Reds vs Colorado Rockies Prediction

I considered the Rockies and the plus money because Ty Blach has been respectable this season and has more than held his own at Coors Field. However, we're not getting enough bang for our buck. The Cincinnati Reds are the better team, no matter how you slice it, and I'd need a better price if I was going to go away from that. The Colorado Rockies aren't a good team and no matter how decent Blach has been this season, I'd need more plus money to pull the trigger. Give me the Reds.
