It's a 4:10 Saturday start, but I'm happy to report that his game is not a Fox Blackout Night in America special.

Despite winning 3 of their last four, the Reds are somehow a half game further back than they were on Tuesday. In a week that featured three wins against the defending World Champs and a no-hitter, the team couldn't gain any ground. There's just no give in this division. But they need to be able to handle the Mariners - who are, let's not forget, 10 games under-.500 in a division that contains the Astros.

Speaking of trying to win games, it seems like there was probably a way to avoid putting both Hannahan and Izturis into the same lineup. It's not because of their history against Bonderman. Hannahan has never faced Hannahan and Izturis is 1-for-8. I guess we already knew it's not really because of their bats.

Now that Robinson and Paul have cooled off considerably, it's anyone's guess what happens in left field. Someone will have to pick up the slack if the Reds want to keep pace.
