Steve has already announced the big news regarding tonight’s lineup versus the Cubs…Jay Bruce is starting at 1B. That conversation and debate has been on-going for a few hours now. In other news, the Reds will be sending 4 players to the All-Star game.
But right now let’s focus on the Chicago Cubs. The Reds and Cubs begin a 4-day, 5 game series with one another beginning tonight in Cincinnati. I’ll have the luxury of being at Thursday’s series finale where I hope to see the Reds go for the sweep. Not much else I can say about the Cubs, so I’ll defer to this oldie but goody from Mr. Marty. Just a reminder: Cubs gonna Cub.
