Travis Wood vs. Tommy Hunter

TV: Fox Sports Ohio; RADIO: 700 WLW ; WEB: Gameday, Gameday Audio,

Partly cloudy. Game time temperature around 70.

Here's an intriguing question - at least as far as questions about bench spots go. Do the Reds decide to take only 11 pitchers, bringing Chris Valaika Northeast with the big league club for a spell? It's pretty unlikely. But he's still around and hitting well. In other news, Ramon Hernandez is scheduled to start tomorrow. With a little luck, the spring attrition won't creep any further.

The Rangers should really play fair and make Tommy Hunter swing the bat. Everything conspires to make our starters look bad out in the desert. But if anyone's going to buck that trend this spring, it'll be Travis "Avis Tries Harder Than Wood" Wood.

Go Reds! Here's hoping they're ready to rumble soon, and not crumble nor stumble.
