Today is Aaron Harang's first start against someone other than his teammates.  Since it's a travel game for the Yankees, I imagine he'll only see the stars that are playing in the WBC.  Even still, there should be a couple of tough bats in the lineup to challenge him.

The Yankees are throwing 26-year old Mexican Alfredo Aceves out on the mound.  He made 4 starts with the club last year, going 1-0 with a 2.40 ERA.  I think the Reds can take 'em.

I'm not certain, but this may be our last chance to see the Reds players who are participating in the WBC (unless last night was).  So, enjoy this lineup while you can, but look forward to seeing more playing time for players like Drew Stubbs, Chris Dickerson, Chris Valaika, and Todd Frazier.

Today's game is airing on 700WLW, the last such game until next weekend.  So, listen while you can!
