Even though JJ Hoover kinda sounds like a made-up name, the Juan Francisco trade was not a hoax. We could be in for some more twists and turns before the final roster comes down. Who's taking the last two bench sports? Who's going in the bullpen? We might know after today's game or we might not know for another few days.
Mat Latos has had a great spring. Today, he's "getting his work" in and stretching out one last time before his Game 2/Opening Night start on April 7. Red Reporter will be there. And you will know us by the trail of Red.
This one is on the TV.
Go Reds! Don't be afraid to dog it out there! My nerves are shot from all this drama.
Lineup after the hump.
