This season is turning scary for me, because now my main preoccupation is rooting for great individual seasons by some of my favorite players. I hold my breath every time Jay Bruce comes to the plate, I hope for big things from Joey Votto, and I especially wish for Edinson to continue what is thus far a historic season. I know he can't keep up his 261 ERA+, his 1.71 ERA or his 10.42 K/9 rate, but I watch all of his starts in suspense, just hoping he can keep keeping guys from crossing the plate.

If he can do that tonight, the Reds will leave town with back-to-back series wins over AL East teams, which would be very nice as we head to Cleveland. I'd also like to see Adam Dunn get some comeuppance in his feud with J.P. Ricciardi.

So go Reds.
