Cincinnati Reds vs Colorado Rockies Prediction

A pitching matchup of Graham Ashcraft and Dakota Hudson doesn't excite me, especially when you look at the home / road splits. Hudson has held his own at Coors, so it does make the Rockies somewhat attractive in the underdog role. The bottom line is the Reds are the better team no matter how you slice it, and there's not enough bang for my buck to give the Rockies serious consideration. Give me the Reds at the reasonable price.
