Paul Wilson-SP

Pre-game analysis-Xavier Nady had no hits in game one and I had big hopes for him to get off to a hot start so look for him to pound a few in this one. As well as Tom Glavine the veteran left hander, he will be facing a Reds team that has some lefties in i.e. Casey,Dunn,Griffey Jr. those should be three he should get out and if he doesnt it could be trouble.
