Ed-E catches the big one!

Today was an eye-rolling, fist-pounding, vocal chord-stretching kind of game, the kind that you automatically lose in August when your team is already out of contention and is competing for last place. However, it is not August, the Reds are very much in it, and we somehow managed to pull it off, despite a brilliant minus one inning performance by the D-train. Something fishy was going on with Reds pitching, especially with the longballs Harang kept giving up. Fortunately, our Paul Bunyan offense saved us again.

LaRue got bowled over twice in the 6th inning. The second time he hung on for an out. What a welcome back thing to happen. Rick White sux.

Today's giant ox - Edwin Encarnation, who hit the game winning single to score Adam "I'm almost slumping" Dunn.

Fun fact of the day: In 1880, after a last place 21-59 season, the Cincinnati Reds were expelled from the National League, due in part to selling beer in their ballpark and playing games on Sunday. Gotta love those Reds!

Abercrombie and Fish hit a 493 feet HR. Even Marty was impressed with its distance.

The bullpen smells like Fish. I hate our bullpen. I hate our bulllpen. I hate our bulllpen. I hate our bulllpen. I hate our bulllpen. I hate our bulllpen. I hate our bulllpen. I think I like Coffey. I hate our bulllpen. I hate our bulllpen. I hate our bulllpen. I hate our bulllpen. I hate our bulllpen. I hate our bulllpen.

There's not a lot of bullpen love over my way, either. In fact, your ending was going to be my entire post if EdE hadn't pulled this one off.

Just think how good this team could be if they had a couple of real pitchers.
