Reds Impervious To Sword Attacks, Also Beat Pirates, Reds 9-4
The major contributors, outside of Cueto who was rock solid again, was the newly pain free wrist of Joey Votto and of course new starting shortstop, Paul Janish Yanish. Janish didn't record an out at the plate, going 3 for 3 with a 3-run bomb in the big 7th inning. So, for everyone who has been saying how much better the Reds would be with him playing everyday, there's your proof. I, however, am not one of those people but still feel he is a fine bench player and a fine gentleman. He can go ahead and use that sentence for motivation in continuing his strong play.
Reds head to Chicago after the day off today. The Cubs have given up, though they didn't move as many players as I'd hope, which would have made them a complete joke. They still have a couple of at least average players and sometimes play well at home. So, let's stay focused here Reds. Big series with the Cardinals to follow. Reds! Reds! Reds!
