Major League Baseball’s All Star Game is tonight in the cozy confines of Coors Field, as Denver plays host for the event this year.

The Cincinnati Reds offense has been rolling all season long, and a recent surge from the bullpen and a healthy rotation has them humming on most every cylinder at the moment, with them firmly in the push for a coveted playoff spot. Still, it’s been the work of corner OF bats Jesse Winker and Nick Castellanos that has served as the biggest fuel for the team’s fire, and they were rightfully rewarded with starting spots in tonight’s festivities.

They’ll hit back to back for the National League, in spots 5/6 in the starting lineup.

The game will be televised on FOX, with first pitch coming most likely hours after coverage begins at 7:30 PM ET.

We’ll be chugging wings and eating beers at Red Reporter Headquarters with the game on the big screen, bloggin’ like fools about it. Join us!
