With the Reds beginning a three-game series against the Cardinals this evening (right now, in fact!), nothing else really matters in Cincinnati this week. Not the streetcar, not the City's budget woes, and certainly not that other team that plays its games on the river (no need to pay attention to them until September 12).
So feel free to talk about the Reds generally, but in particular the following:
1. What do you think about the Dickerson-for-Edmonds trade?
2. What should Dusty do about Cordero? (Remember that he's sitting on 30 saves. And if not him, who would you bring out in the ninth to shut things down in a close game?)
This is the first time since I moved to Cincinnati that baseball has mattered in August. It's awesome!
Oh--is anyone going to Wednesday's game?
