Worry Not, Help Is On the Way. Dodgers 9-3

Over the past week or so, Belisle got to know and like Louisville. The people are polite and the expectations placed upon a borderline professional talent are substantially lower than those in Cincinnati. So, it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise that he's anxious to get back there. And after tonight, he will likely get his wish. Good for you, Matt. See you in September.

Encarnacion and Votto went deep but that about covers all the offense, unless you're a fan of the Reds hitting into double plays, there were three of those. Not too bad. Also, Josh Fogg made his first appearance out of the bullpen but rather than focus on the specifics of his outing, let's that remember he's a sharp dresser and a pleasure to be around.

Now onto the big news, as I'm sure many of you have already learned Jerry Hairston Jr. and his fabulous bat were added to the major league roster today. That means that old friend Juan Castro was designated for assignment, which is sad but is nature. His bat was simply too weak to compete with the stronger species. As I stated previously, Hairston has the ability to suck a 7 different positions which should be of great comfort to Dusty. So, tomorrow, as you can see, is another day. There is a Hairston on the roster and the Reds play will greatly improve.
