Reds Domination of the Astros Is Demonstrative of the High Quality of the Team, Reds 5-1
Bailey was awfully good, especially when contrasted with his last start. He dropped his ERA down to a more respectable 4.30. But, again, this lineup the Astros are putting out on the field is not intended to be competitive. So, it's good that he was able to go 8 and generally dominate against a bunch of former players and AAA All-Stars. It's Major League Baseball's version of the Harlem Globetrotters. Sure they're pretty good and have the unique abilities (Brian Bogusevic can fit 7 baseballs in his mouth) but you know last year's Timberwolves would beat them by 75 points. I think fans are just showing up hoping that one of them will get decapitated or start a brawl.
Reds finish things up today with Willis picking up his first Reds win. He's pretty excited about it. Reds! Reds! Reds!
