Throwing it around

Another full week is almost in the books. What did you get done? We’re only kidding. Although the Reds have the off day today there is a pretty full slate of MLB action tonight and a big NBA game. With a road trip to Cleveland tomorrow we won’t be putting up a lot of posts so be prepared to miss out a little bit. Here’s some baseball linkage on this cloudy thursday.
