Yep. Those guys. While the names may have changed, the red birds on the chests haven't. That's okay though, because we know that no matter what, this will be a hard fought game between two NL Central rivals. With the respective faces of the teams tonight being Joey Votto and Albert Pujols Tony LaRussa Chris Carpenter Colby Rasmus Ryan Theriot the other guy who went to Rice University Matt Carpenter, this game will surely live up to the hype of its billing!

Gong for the bad guys tonight is Jake Westbrook (no related to Michael) while Homer Bailey (no relation to Bill) goes for the Redlegs. The Reds may be 2-1 so far, but several questions remain despite winning their initial series against the Marlins:

1. Will Jay Bruce hit home run #4 tonight?

2. Will Zach Cozart finally hit for the cycle in one game?

3. Will Homer make it extremely difficult for the Red to pry him from the rotation?

4. Will hotel bartenders in Cincinnati miss Ozzie Guillen?

5. Will "Reds Live" be forced to broadcast in an undisclosed location by the end of the season? .

Let's hope all the answers to these questions are: YES!
