Jonny Gomes' Mohawk Says It's Time For This Game to Be Over, Reds 2-1

The Reds decided to put together a nice game yesterday, specifically in the starting pitching department. It appears as if the Reds Rocket should have ignored the last start of the spring for Charles Bronson Arroyo (10 runs over 4 innings to a terrible horrible Indians team) rather than mentioning it in the team previous, because Bronson was lights out yesterday. He went 8, kept Pujols from being too much of a hassle, drove in the first run of the games which gave the Reds their first lead of the year but received nothing other than memories for his efforts. As we all know, you can't put your arms around a memory. But I suppose you can't really put your arms around a win either, which is wholly an invention of the game. So, maybe he doesn't care either way, but I suspect next time he'd enjoy a little support from the offense.

The offense has shown little, early in the season. Brad Penny? Come on. However, Jonny Gomes and his fabulous haircut erased the prior 8 innings and sent everybody home with a pat on the ass. Jason Motte, who throws 100 mph, can't get anyone out. Fortunately, he throws hard enough where they're going to keep running him out there despite how terrible he is. That's good for everyone other than Cardinals fans. Nice first win of the year for Coco for his one inning of work.

Reds welcome in the Chicago Cubs for the weekend series which should propel the team's record over .500 where it will stay for the remainder of the year. The Cubs could be dangerous this year with new faces like Carlos Silva. That guy can deal. And that contract he signed with the Mariners? Fantastic. Fortunately, the mind behind the 4 year $48 deal, Bill Bavasi, is now in the front office with the Reds. That's the kind of thinking we need to propel this team.

And the comment from yesterday's post "thank you for you to make me learn more,thank you∩0∩" - helps remind me why I waste everyone's time typing out obvious observations from baseball games. I'm always happy to help anyone learn more.
