Tom Shearn Is Very Impressive, 9-3

For all of you who pay attention to the Reds' minor league affiliates, I'm sure have been waiting for Tom Shearn to get his big league call. Actually, the author remembers thinking, god damn I hope the Krivsky never calls up Tom Shearn. Well they did and boy does the author look like a fool. Tom Shearn and his 30-year-old arm, after waiting for twelve seasons, will likely get another big league start in about five days. How about that.

The win today marked the Res' sixth consecutive. And since the author didn't write anything yesterday regarding B-Lizzle's big return from exile, now is the time to commemorate the team's longest winning streak of the season. The offense has been exceptional these last six games. Today, three more homers including a grand slam by soon-to-be-demoted, Ryan Jorgensen. No room for you with Daggum Ross getting healthy. It's not just any major leaguer who strikes out one out of every three plate appearances. Phillips seems to be in his manic cycle again, which always helps out the offense. Day off tomorrow while the Mackanins take in all this success, followed by a double dip with the Pirates on Tuesday. How's a 10-game winning streak sound? Reds! Reds! Reds!
