BASEBALL, 4:10 p.m. PT

Great American Ballpark, Cincinnati

Reds -150 at Pirates (9)

Yes, this is the same pick that appeared in "2 For Tuesday" only with a twist. The Reds decided to pull starting pitcher Josh Fogg and his 2-7 record in favor of Aaron Harang, who is even worse. Harang, once the Cincinnati ace, is 4-14 with a 5.27 ERA. So, were not changing our tune.

As we said, Ian Snell has had his moments for the Pirates. Yes, the 5-10 record is disturbing but he was considered the staff ace last year. Pittsburgh has lost 10 straight, but the good news is the game is not being played at PNC Park. With nothing on the line for either team plus the nice underdog price, were thinking the Pirates are itching to end this debacle. PIRATES.
