First game of three between the Reds (40-61) the Padres (44-58). Day 2874 of Jay Bruce’s Possible Shiny New Laundry Watch.
Here’s what we do know: Homer Bailey returns from the DL of Eternity today and is scheduled to start Sunday. Kyle Waldrop was sent to the Bats. I sent this adorable-on-the-internet dress back because it make me look like I was pregnant with a small to medium-sized hippopotamus.

|The Padres have not posted their lineup yet and I am currently late for my nephew’s birthday party, so feeergit you, Padres lineup. You need to check with my very busy social schedule before making up your minds over who is going to greet Votto as he trots to first base.
Never mind, we got done with cake faster than I thought.
THAT MOMENT WHEN YOU HAD NO IDEA YOU WERE EVEN ELIGIBLE TO BE DRAFTED BUT GUESS WHAT YOU’D BETTER START LOOKING FOR AN APARTMENT IN NEWPORT
Hey man. Time for Brandon Finnegan again.

You know those concert ticket broker commercials on WLW? I heard one the other day which announced that many, many Reds tickets are currently available for UNDER FACE VALUE!!!! So, if you’ve ever wanted to see losing from cushioned seats with waiter service, now’s the time to do it.
