I type this game thread out in the early morning hours of Saturday, and the biggest question is: Will there be anyone available to play in tonight’s game for the Reds against the Braves? Reds players seem to be dropping like flies these days. I just hope they have enough able bodies to defeat Atlanta tonight and even this series back up. I have an important twitter avatar bet with a Braves buddy of mine and the thought of having an avatar of Ted Turner or Greg Maddux for a week is pretty sickening to my stomach.
So PLEASE, go Reds!
If you haven’t read Greg Dafler’s great series preview, please do.
Lineup – No Mesoraco as expected. No Frazier, which wasn’t a sure thing. Billy Hamilton back in the lead-off spot, not injured.
