WOOOOO - John Grieshop
The first late night game thread of the year. Let's get weird.
Los Angeles Dodgers @ Cincinnati Reds

Goodyear Ballpark - Goodyear, AZ
Josh Beckett v. Mat Latos
RADIO: WLW; WEB: MLB.tv, Gameday Audio, Gameday
After rocking Arizona with the heat of a thousand suns, Red Reporter has left the desert. I wish we could have stayed longer, but alas, man can only subsist on beer, ballpark food, and the contents of Petey Hendrix's shampoo bottles for so long. Hopefully the Reds can keep up their winning ways, though I'm sure they stepped up their game in the presence of Rob Butcher's favorite bloggers.
After Team Canada's exit from the WBC, Joey Votto returns to Reds camp healthy. Mat Latos takes the bump tonight for his second start of the spring, and the Reds have their A-Team going, with the exception of Manny Burriss taking BP's spot at second base.
Big round of cuts today -
Optioned to Louisville: Tony Cingrani and Daniel Corcino
Optioned to Pensacola: Kyle Lotzkar and Josh Ravin
Optioned to Bakersfield: Carlos Contreras and Yorman Rodriguez
Optioned to Dayton: Ismael Guillon
Reassigned to Minor League Camp: Nick Christiani, Chad Rogers, Nevin Ashley, Kris Negron, and Ryan LaMarre
That brings the number of players in big league camp down to 44.
