It is going to be these games against each other that likely determine who is in last place in the NL Central. The Pirates look more likely to be there but that is why they play the games.
Not a lot has gone right for the Pirates in the early part of the season. They did win the opener against the Cubs but would have probably traded that for avoiding the injury to Ke’Bryan Hayes, their top prospect. He is on the 10-day injury list but it does not look too serious. The rest of the lineup is pretty tame.
Trevor Cahill is the fifth starter for the Pirates to start the season. It says a fair amount about him that no other team was interested in the veteran so I would not expect too much.
If Cahill can hand them the lead the Pirates bullpen is more than capable of keeping up their end of the bargain.
Nick Castellanos has been suspended for his part in the brawl between the Reds and Cardinals. That is a shame because he was off to a hot start with a couple of homers already. Cincinnati should still have enough offense against the Pirates though.
Like Cahill, Wade Miley is one of those arms that I kind of forget is still in the Majors. I have never been a big fan of the lefty.
The bullpen has looked solid so far. They are missing the kind of big arms they have had in the past.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
Neither of these pitchers are giving me much confidence right now. They look more like lottery tickets/filler to me and that is why I think the best bet is the over, even if the Reds are missing a big bat in their lineup.
