Hey Donkey, Right Up Top, Reds Win 5-4

Just ask Adam Dunn about the year he's having, seriously do it. Let me tell you about his season, incredible. He's having an incredible year. And tonight he was in true form. Show stopping form. He showed everyone the full range of his trade. In the first inning he charged a bloop to left and when it fell in he overran it and had to turn and chase. Once he tracked the ball down, he whirled and fired it in the direction of home plate, nowhere near the cutoff. But the Big Donkey is very wise. That's the old fake erratic throw play he will implement from time to time. Encarnacion, of course, was already positioned in foul territory and made the very easy throw to the plate. Sure Sanchez took second on the play and later scored, but that can certainly be attributed to B-Lizzle's failure to make quality pitches.

Then in the fourth, the Reds had the bases loaded with two outs. Encarnacion singled to left and two runs crossed the plate, making it a 2-1 game. But the Pirates appealed to third and the umps ruled that Dunn who appeared to score from second failed to step on the bag at third. The umpires stood around for a while, then took both runs off the board. So, the Reds went from up a run to down a run and the hit and the two RBIs were taken away from Eddie. It's a good thing Dunn and Encarnacion are so tight [they've got a duet album coming out this fall, We Tight is the single]. But let me tell you what Donkey was thinking, if the Reds are going to contend, they need to work, to focus in the face of adversity. To dig deep, if you will. And that's what they did. After the bullpen returned to it's trademark shittiness, Griffey found some grass behind third and Gonzalez ran like he was being chased by wolves and scored from first. And then Phillips saved the game with a fantastic play in the bottom of the 9th. Game over and the Reds split the series. Even though it's just the Pirates, that is a pretty satisfying victory. All thanks to Adam Dunn. Tom Shearn's on the mound tomorrow, he's been sleeping under the team bus on a bed he made out of leaves so he should be ready for his start. Reds! Reds! Reds!

Please, no Donkey next year.

My liver can't handle it.

Yeah I mean, he's only been the best run producer and most consistent player on the team for the past half decade.

Once you guys get to know some baseball, let me know.

Who's going to score next season for the Reds star studded offense? Norris Hopper? Jason Ellison? Oh wait Jay Bruce right? Guys these 3 together couldn't hold Donkey's cock while he pees.
