Reds unveil roster for Wild Card game

The Reds have finally unveiled their 25-man roster for the do-or-die Wild Card game tonight in Pittsburgh.

Here is a look at who Dusty Baker will have at his disposal to try and eliminate Clint Hurdle's Pirates.

As you can see, there weren't many surprises. Mat Latos wasn't included due to arm soreness, but he should be ready for the NLDS, assuming the Reds can advance.

Well, the fate of the 2013 season for the Reds lies squarely on tonight. A win punches their ticket to the NLDS for the right to face the Cardinals and a loss sends the Reds to a long winter.
