Could this be the best pitching staff the Reds have ever had?
The games yesterday and tonight were like night and day. Perhaps in September when we play the Fish again we'll look back to this brief series and say, this was it. This was the series when the team finally got it together. The defense was tremendous, Phillips hit a ton, and in general it was just a beautiful game.
But four shutouts in six games. Wow. I can't wait to play the Deadbirds this weekend. I'd like to slip into first place and won't even mind when I hear the national media drool over the "surprising Reds" who are "this year's Rays." I'm already loving the Votto-Pujols comparisons.
