Cueto Pitches So Well He Doesn't Mind Posing For Picture with D-Bag, Reds 3-0

The picture featured to the left is actually from a website named 'Major League Bling.' The said doucheberg is, likely, the proprietor of the establishment as the website also includes pictures of him and, in addition to Cueto, So Taguchi and Henry Blanco. Those guys don't give their time to just anyone. But, as stated, Cueto had time after the game. He dominated the Cubs for 7 innings and, rightly, felt pretty good about himself. That brings his ERA for '09 down to a very reasonable 2.55 and he's averaging slightly under a strikeout an inning. Nice job Johnny.

The offense was sluggish again last night against Ted Daffodil. The first run was scored after the Cubs put on a clinic about how not to defend against a bunt. After Gonzalez laid one down, Lilly negligectly to throw it to first base. Cueto bunted and also reached (in addition to the solid outing, Cueto also went 2 for 2 at the plate, season average .400). Then power bat Willy Taveras hit the sac fly and that was more or less that. Votto added a run-scoring double and Ray Jay hit his second bomb in two days after taking some time to recover from his Morgellon's disease or a hurt wrist, I don't recall. Big win Reds as it ensures a winning road trip. A win today and they take all three series, how about that? Reds! Reds! Reds!

Side note 2 - From 4/21, I forgot to mention, if it needs stating at all, that the Reds Rocket is a strong supporter of cats biting groundkeepers on television, especially those who work for the Cubs. I was actually listening to Marty and Cowboy at the time and then watched the replay when I got home. Cowboy goes, 'I don't care if it's a rat, a bird, or a cat, if an animal gets on the field it's funny...and now it's biting him and he's holding it by the tail'

As a man whose ability to achieve an erection is 100% dependent on the Reds maintaining a winning percentage above .570, I approve of this victory.

I can't believe Jockitchy isn't bringing up Rosales. I like what I see so far, but I think we need Rosales bat.
