    Sources: #Nationals showing interest in #Reds closer Raisel Iglesias. He has a 1.59 ERA, 15 of 16 in save opportunities. @MLB @MLBNetwork
    This could be a really good opportunity for the Reds. As you mentioned, Iglesias is affordable, talented & under team control. But the Nationals are desperate for bullpen help and want to win NOW.

    It makes a lot of sense for them, but the price will be so high. With Harper coming up on FA they can't afford to go out and get a stud RP pitcher at $15M-$20M a year. With that being said, I don't see it happening.

    Yeah, they better get a metric ton for Iglesias if they are going to let him go.

    Reds are at it again. Already hit into two rally killing Double Plays in this game. If they could hit with people on base, it would greatly increase their won loss record. Reds 2-1.

    Scooter just keeps giving the Reds quality at bats.

    Looks like the bullpen is going to have to win this game. Bats not getting it done.

    I was wrong again, bats coming to life. DuVall Homer and Shebler doubles. Reds 5-2.

    I guess it's a good thing we have a 3rd C at this point, but Turner hasn't been good at anything this year. And that's being nice.

    They're 13th in league with RISP, 10th in league with RISP with 2 outs and 5th in league with bases loaded. Hitting is not the cause of their record.

    Romano looks good but once again we have a starter that can't go more than 5 innings. Will it ever get any better? Let's hope so.
