So, the Reds send down a promising young hitter like Edwin Encarnacion, and then play Juan Castro at third. That's some thinkin' there. I was going to use this space to further mock Reds G.M. Wayne Krivski, but the lineups came up far too late. Maybe I'll get to that tomorrow.

Sadly, we don't get to see Josh Hamilton tonight, but we will have plenty of Norris Hopper.

I wonder if the Dodgers are the only team with three below replacement level hitters hitting 1-2-3.
