Las Vegas - Taking a peek at the Reds with Graham Ashcraft over the D'backs. It's a small sample size, but since coming up to Cincinnati, Ashcraft has not lost a game (2-0) and allowed only three earned runs over 17 innings for a skinny 1.53 ERA. Arizona did not announce a starting pitcher as we went to press, and as long as it's not either of the Zs, Zach Davies or Zac Gallen, we're all in on Red!

Las Vegas - Was thinking about skating on to the NHL ice up in Edmonton tonight and wondering if the Oilers could avoid the broom. My answer is, probably not. Understand that the Avalanche will be without one of their main pieces, Nazem Kadri, and, probably goalie Darcy Kuemper. But this club is SO deep, and SO talented, that it should not be a major problem.

Las Vegas - Quick stop on the MLB board down in Texas where we're buying the Rangers with Martin Perez over the Mariners. If I told you that Perez has allowed ONLY three earned runs over the last 42 innings for a RIDONKULOUS 0.64 ERA, what would you say? Maybe, ALL IN BAABBBEEE!!!

Las Vegas - On the NHL ice this evening, this is basically a win or go home game for Edmonton. If the Oilers lose and fall into an 0-3 hole, there's NO coming back. Well, almost no coming back. In the 105 history of the NHL playoffs, only four teams have managed to come back from an 0-3 hole. If you're a history buff and wanna know which four, it was the Maple Leafs in 1942, the Islanders in 1975, the Flyers in 2010 and the Kings in 2014.

Las Vegas - On the MLB board, gonna roll down to Florida and grab Tampa Bay over the White Sox. The Rays send Shane McClanahan to the mound, and he has been GINORMOUS. He has won four in a row with one no decision (a Tampa win), but he is throwing a WHOLE bunch of BAGELS. How about only 2 earned runs over 26 innings for a 0.69 ERA, and oh yea, you can throw 34 Ks into the stew. Swimming and cashing with the Rays.
