Well that was fun last night, wasn't it? Reds have an odd day game on a Saturday today so Scott Rolen won't be playing Ryan Hanigan finally gets a day off. I'm looking forward to seeing Mike Leake in action to live up to the confidence shown in him in the 5th spot. There really isn't any pressure on him at this point. And Devin's in the lineup!

It looks like a pretty nice day at the ballpark, so if you're going, have fun. A handful of us will be reporting from the Louisville Bats game, so follow us at @redreporter to get live updates from there.

Go Reds!
