The Reds Aaron Harang has had a nightmarish season so far. When he pitches well, the Reds don't score or the pen coughs it up. The problem is, he is also not pitching like he was last year when the Reds at one stretch won 14 of 15 with him on the bump. The problems have stemmed since then, as the Reds are now just 8-14 in his last 22 starts. They have dropped five of his last six! The Dodgers will counter with Eric Stults who is making his first appearance of the season. Stults had a 3.58 ERA in 14 starts at AAA Las Vegas. The Dodgers ,after a 1-6 stretch, have rebounded by winning two straight. This is a steep price on a Cincinnati team that has also played .500+ baseball vs LHP, but seven games under against RHP. The Dodgers get the call at a price that spells value.
