The Cincinnati Reds swept the Houston Astros this week. They did! There are highlights and recaps and everything!

Fresh off what’s likely been the highlight of this season, the Reds and their 4-game win streak head off to Milwaukee for the weekend for a 4-game series that might well be the single most pivotal of this season to date. Naturally, we cast a pod about it.

Tony joined me to discuss the biggest moments of the last week, including the decision by manager David Bell to use Michael Lorenzen as his ‘closer’ while using Raisel Iglesias in a more leverage-induced role. We also discussed the numerous different ways this roster could go as Scooter Gennett and Alex Wood return, as well as how that will impact the team’s decisions as trade season heats up.
