Last night's game was hard to watch. Really, really sloppy. Hoping for major improvement tonight.
I'll try to get back and post lineups, but if anyone else wants to before I get to it, please feel free.

Looks like Jay Bruce is getting the night off. Quite the makeshift lineup for a big series against the Brewers. Here's hoping Latos is on his game. And I'm calling that Lutz gets a big hit or two.

Game is already started--no time for a long post. Just a fresh starter for the final game of this series.

Don't have much time to post and I won't be around for most of the game tonight. Here's the lineup per Fay:
And a few more interesting Tweets from Fay:
--Talked to Schumaker. Said the shoulder is fine. He could not pass the concussion test. Will take again today.
--Chapman told Price the hamstring is good to go. He's available tonight
--Bailey threw a full bullp... [More]

I noticed the prior thread closed automatically after three days, so am opening this to comment on.

I know we broached this topic a couple of weeks ago, but it's time to make our picks for team MVP at the All-Star break. Here's my Top Five, but it's hardly set in stone:
1. Todd Frazier: By a whisker over BHam. What makes his year so special is that he's batting .290, not .260. We knew the power was there (and also the stellar glove and arm), but it's been great to see him stroking singles to right as well. And 14 stolen bases to boot. Great all-around first... [More]

Gametime: 1:10 EDT
Starters: Cueto (9-6, 2.03) vs. Liriano (1-6, 4.60)
Last Sunday I asked the Reds to take 6 out of 8 games from the Cubs and Pirates leading up to the All-Star Game. A win today would fulfill that request. It's too bad that the two losses this past week were so tough to take. Coulda, shoulda, woulda.
I like our odds today if our hitters show up. Cueto is gunning for his 10th win in a day game (he likes those) agains... [More]

Starters: Leake (7-7, 3.42) vs. Morton (5-9, 3.10)
This is my first time posting as an admin, so I'll keep it brief and make sure it works. Thanks for the tutelage, Amy!
Last night's comeback win was one for the ages. So glad Hebron Reds Fan and his son were there to enjoy it. Perhaps the best part was all the contributions made by bench players: Santiago, Pena, Heisey, Lutz, and the newest members... [More]

Gametime: 7:10 EDT
Starters: Latos (2-1, 2.41) vs. Locke (2-1, 3.08)
I’m ready to put yesterday’s game in the rear-view mirror. It had me pissy all evening—just ask my wife. I vote to let it go and move on.
Time to take (at least) 2 out of 3 from the Pirates and get the walking wounded to the All-Star break. But first, I want to endorse a recommendation that Ash, Champ, and others have been making. I didn’t know all that much about Ben Zobrist, so I did some homew... [More]
