The Phillies only play the Reds seven times this year, these 3 games in Cinncy starting Tuesday night and then 4 games at home in Philly in July. Here's a scouting report on the Reds.
The Reds are overdue for a great season. The last time the Reds made it to the post season was 1995 when they were swept by the Dodgers for the LCS. In 2008 and 2007, the team finished in 5th place out of the 6 teams in the NL Central. Dusty Baker is their manager and he is in his second year skippering the team. The 2009 Reds are currently without many big superstar names on the team although the team did go out and bolster the pitching by acquiring Bronson Arroyo back in 2006 and he is already 5-2 for the team this year and went 15-11 for them last year.
