Reds Continued with Conspiracy to Inflate Spirits of City of Pittsburgh, Pirates 2-0

The Reds continued to abstain from meaningful offensive production against Charlie Morton. As you likely recall, the last time Cincinnati faced Morton, he threw his first career shut out. Yesterday, though they had a runner at third with no outs and later loaded the bases with two outs in the 1st, they didn't score any runs. Not only in the 1st but for the entire game. I will reiterate, I like Charlie Morton with the 8+ ERA from last year a lot better than this joker with the sub 4.00. He didn't think he was better then everyone else. In fact, he knew he wasn't better than anyone else. And I liked him just fine the way he was.

There were a couple of delays, due to some bad weather, which sapped the D-Train's fuel supply. He only last 4.2 innings but threw pretty well. He gave up the two runs which ended up being the difference but he was counting on a little more production from the National League's leading run scoring offense. And they let him down. You can tell from his picture how disappointed he was in everyone, especially Miguel Cairo. Maybe next time Dontrelle.

So, with the loss (and Pirates' win), the Pirates are in lone possession of 1st place in the Central. Pretty wild. Though, the fans are right to be suspicious as they have a plan to lose 35 in a row all cooked up. That will return everything from the bizarro world where the Pirates are good at baseball. Leake and his teammates have something big planned today. Look out for it.
