Reds Get All Crazy and Shit, Beat Cubs 5-4

The author will take a win over the Cubs before just about any other and that was an especially nice one last night. Chicago's playing good baseball, they're only two back of the Brewers to start the day and then they come all the way back to tie it against the Reds' ordinarily reliable closer only to lose in the bottom half of the 9th. The author could ask for a better ending. That play by Freel and Ross to get that schmendrick Jacque Jones was one of the better plays I've seen out of the Reds this season. Maybe the Reds will win every game for the rest of the season in their last at bat.

Arroyo pitched another good ballgame. The author has mixed emotions about the trade rumors. He may get fetch a good price in this market but then who's going to rock it like a magicist? And Eddie, for one thing what are you even doing in the lineup, and since you are playing what are doing playing well? Several nice plays at third, a monster bomb, then a late hit of the game winning variety. The author actually prefers to see you in the lineup. Let's keep up the good work out there club, how about another win today? Reds! Reds! Reds!
