Reds Trip to Arizona Less Great Than Expected, Snakes 10-8
Focusing on game two, which featured some nice Arroyo pitching and a late game meltdown (complete with error by pitcher leading to additional runs and outs) that was all right. So, we'll focus on that. Nice win over an overmatched team. Votto, also, deserves some additional recognition for having a fine series. And Jonny Gomes now has about 15 walks and added a bomb to his tally. I recall some rumblings in Cincinnati over low batting average from a few years ago when a big, donkey-like creature was roaming left field, so, Jonny, as I know you read this, might want to consider getting that batting average up, if you care about the fan-bases' opinion of you. Phills' still swinging a hot bat, Renteria had more hits today, so once the pitching situation is straightened out, should be a-okay. A few less strike outs from the young outfielders from Texas would also be requested. But these are all just on the Reds Rocket's wishlist, feel free to disregard or we'll just be spoiled. Just like that Stones song where Mick says something about a memo from Turner, whoever that was. Padres suffer the unparalleled rage of the Reds tomorrow. They have been warned accordingly.
