The Reds’ ace got just enough offense for a comfortable road win on Saturday. Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game In an alternate universe, Luis Castillo pitches this game for the San Diego Padres. After that trade he was a part of to move Andrew Cashner and Colin Rea to the Miami Marlins, Rea’s arm is never revealed to be toast, and Castillo sticks with the Padres.

So, the Reds can thank Padres’ GM A.J. Preller and his somewhat shady dealings for how they ended up with their current ace in the first place. The Reds will send...
