Reds Celebrate Pujols' Injury By Losing 10-0

With really the only scary bat out of the lineup, Cueto couldn't find the strike zone. He did set a career high in walks, which is certainly some sort of accomplishment, and gave up first inning home runs to Rick Ankiel (who has hit all 10 bombs this season against the Reds) and old pal Jason LaRue. With the 2 hits today, LaRue's average jumped to .196, the highest its been for about three years.

But the offense rebounded and collected three hits the entire game off Braden Looper. He didn't even have to throw 100 pitches. He must have traded the second 'n' in his first name for some effectiveness. With the way these assholes are struggling with their wooden sticks, Joel Pinero probably strikes out 20 tomorrow. No really, that guy has a nice approach to the game. He'll run it out there, thumb it up there for two and a third and take a seat. At least he's getting a regular paycheck and now he can trim his goatee. Look for Corey Patterson in center tomorrow, he's the spark plug that ignites the Reds offense.
