USA TODAY Sports

Tonight, there is a baseball game. That's all I've got for you.

Off the heels of Roy Halladay's 200th win, the Phillies look to make it two in a row as they open the series against the Reds in Cincinnati on Jackie Robinson Day. Cliff Lee takes the mound hoping to extend his stellar start to the season, while Bronson Arroyo gets the nod for the Reds. Freddie Galvis gets the start at second base. Chase Utley is fine. Just getting a rest day.

Tonight, I'd also like to talk about donating blood. It's a really important thing to do, no matter your age or race or blood type. People need blood every day, and there's a constant shortage.

It's a very personal thing -- you're not just giving your time, but part of yourself. But please consider it. Donating takes about an hour. You'll feel woozy afterward. But you just helped someone. In fact, every time you give blood, you help three people. Three. Click here to find a donation site near you.
