Todd Frazier


As of Friday, Cincinnati Reds third baseman Todd Frazier had the best betting odds at the online gaming website Bovada to win the All-Star Game Home Run Derby.

Longtime Cincinnati sports writer John Erardi agrees the Reds player has an excellent chance of winning with his brother pitching and his second place finish last year. Erardi predicts the toughest round will be the first one when he competes against Prince Fielder.

WVXU politics reporter Howard Wilkinson talked with news director Maryanne Zeleznik Monday morning about next year's battle for two Hamilton County commission seats; and the Cincinnati Reds' Todd Frazier's come-from-behind win the the All-Star Game vote. 

Reds players are pumped to be in the playoffs this weekend, but they do feel added pressure as the stakes get higher.

As strange as it sounds pitcher Bronson Arroyo says he'll try to do a little less.
