At 8PM ET tonight, FSN is replaying the game from April 20th of last year against the Brewers. If you're watching, pretend like it didn't happen and re-live the action, or follow along with the game thread from that lovely Sunday afternoon. Aaron Harang started that day, and it'll be nice to see how he looked before the west coast trip that ruined his season. And if you're a Brewers fan, you can tune in to be reminded why you hate Eric Gagne. Everybody wins! Here's the game thread from that day...

Gallardo is making his first start since coming off a knee injury, so who knows what to expect. His rehab starts are a little scattered: He's struck out 18 and walked only five in 15.2 innings, but he's given up 20 hits and nine runs (5.17 ERA). Last year he was Milwaukee's Homer Bailey, only much more successful: 9-5 with a 3.67 ERA, 1.269 WHIP. I guess he was really their Johnny Cueto.
With the uncertainty surrounding his return, I don't feel unhopeful. But with the way we've been hitting and defending, I certainly don't feel hopeful, either. Go Reds anyway.
