Hopefully the site problems are out of the way at this point, because they've been taking their toll on the staff. The office coffee pot has been empty for days and we even had to eat ken. Poor, poor ken.

Tonight the Reds go for the series sweep against the Marlins in Miami. Mat Latos goes for his 5th straight win against a Marlins team that he dominated his last time out. In that outing in Cincinnati, he gave up 1 run in 7 with a season-high 10 strikeouts.

On the other hill will be phenom Jose Fernandez, who had his worst start of the season when he faced this Reds lineup the last time, giving up 5 runs in 4 innings. I was there for that one, and that dude has absolutely filthy stuff. It'll be interesting to see how he fares at home against a lineup he's seen before.

Outside of a rough inning by Chapman last night, the bullpen is still ok for the most part.

Go Reds! They're my favorite team, despite technical issues affecting my ability to express it!
