Just posting the lineup so we have a thread for today's game--not that I expect anyone else to be watching. I'm doing so only as my "reward" for a long day of writing. Some reward.

Game Time: 7:10 in Cincinnati, 6:10 in the land of Ashes
Lineups: TBA, more than likely tomorrow, given that's when the game is
Well. At least we know.
As I've spend much of the last 24 hours reading piece after piece about the Cincinnati Reds heading into the 2014 trade deadline, there seems to be a consensus among pundits and fans alike: the Reds are toast this year.

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]
