Doug Gray joined me again this week, and the topic of the show was whether Phillip Ervin — who has returned to the big leagues with a vengeance this week — has a chance to unseat Billy Hamilton as the starting center fielder for the Cincinnati Reds. We also discussed the incredible season we’re witnessing from Joey Votto, and whether the Reds should bring back Zack Cozart in 2018.

Music for this episode provided by Freekbass, a big Reds fan and a friend of Redleg Nation.
