What do you expect from Aaron Harang tonight, and do you expect that he will make his next scheduled start on Sunday, May 2 against the St. Louis Cardinals and Chris Carpenter?

After their less than stellar start, the Reds have a long stretch of games against mostly NL Central teams over the next month. From now until June 2nd, 17 of their next 20 games, and 27 of 35 games, are against NL Central opponents. A three game series against the Mets next week is the only non-Central series until May 19th.

– 9 times against St Louis
– 7 times versus Pittsburgh
– 6 games versus Houston
– 3 games against the Chicago Cubs
– Twice versus Milwaukee

It would be great to see the big guy start to turn around his season against the 4th place Astros. I think we will see a great start from Harang tonight and a spot in the rotation until at least the July trade deadline.
