Weather looks a little nicer today. What else can you say about last night's game? The bullpen picked Cingrani up, the offense got enough done, and Brandon Phillips (and to a lesser extent, Derrick Robinson) made spectacular plays on defense. A team win in about every sense of the word.

The tweet-up was a good time, too, and I got myself a sweet Joey Votto #FaceOfMLB shirt. It's good. The turnout on a rainy night was better than expected.

Mat Latos tries to keep things going today on Aroldis Chapman bobblehead day. Apparently, we're getting "Los Rojos" jerseys too, so woo hoo. Latos has a 2.34 career ERA against the Brew Crew in 5 starts, and the Reds will be hoping to get more than 5 innings out of him unlike last time.

He'll face Hiram Burgos, who's coming off his best start of his career (7 IP, 2 ER, 6 K). This'll be his 4th start, and obviously first at GABP.

Bullpen got some work in last night, but most of the guys should be good to go if needed. I'd guess they'd try to get Simon a day off.

Vamos Rojos! Son mi equipo favorito!
