The Reds AAA affiliate takes on the Rays AAA team, starting tonight in Durham. If you want to check out some excellent minor league baseball, there's no better chance. Travis Wood takes on Jeremy Hellickson tonight, and Ben Jukich and Sam LeCure will pitch the remaining two games. If you're watching on MiLB.TV, listening on the radio or internet, or going to the game, you'll see plenty of Reds prospects. Yonder Alonso joined the team today, and Jay Bruce will play with the Bats in this first round series, along with prospects Todd Frazier, Juan Francisco, and Chris Heisey. RR favorite Joe "The Cycle" Krebs has also joined the team over the weekend, and will play with them through the playoffs.
It's nice to have be able to root for a winning team, so give the Bats your support! Also, if you're in Louisville for Friday night's game, let us know, as Slyde, jsl413, and I will all be in attendance. Come say hi!
