Volquez Be Dealin', Reds 9-1

I was mistaken the other day when I assumed the Dodgers were in town for three. I agree with Dusty in that a two-game set does not provide Steve Lyons with enough time to acclimate himself with his surroundings so he can start sexually harrassing the locals. And for Reds fans, it's not enough time to administer a proper beating. The win today was nice, but the one which would have clinched the series tomorrow would have been too sweet.

Volquez picked up his third win of the year and was outstanding. He didn't have the control problems we have seen on other occasions, so he was able to go a season high 7 innings. The Dodger offense returned to normal, picking up only five hits and that's with Affeldt and Big Frucking Nasty mopping up. I can't say that I have a problem with Nomar in the three hole. Torre truly is a genius. And looks like Jerry Hairston at the top of the order is proving to be an early success, though there was little doubt. But what about Corey Patterson, you ask? Where are his at bats going to come from now that the Reds have seven outfielders on the roster? Oh, Dusty will make sure Corey gets back in the lineup. Just look at that triple tonight during garbage time. Assholes are in town tomorrow, the winning streak continues. Reds! Reds! Reds!
