Re: 06/01/13- Redlegs vs. Pirates
Though I don't post in game threads much anymore, I enjoyed reading this one. Lots of fear and gnashing of teeth. I'd have been right with TheBigLabowski in my fear and loathing. The first run was a gift and Mikie was dong his usual act, being deceptive and getting outs. Their starter was unhittable through thre and then was human, and we still couldn't score. Finally Choo and Votto came through and we had a two-run lead. Sammy did his usual great job and then came Broxton. I'll call him Houdini from now own because first and third with no outs is simply disaster most of the time, but he did it and even though I have no fingernails left, we moved on to the Rocket. He hasn't pitched much so we could expect the worst, but he made it interesting and I had no fingernails. It all turned out well and the Reds won--two in a row over the Bucs. A sweep is now possible with Latos on the mound and Gomez not being all that great (and a righthander to boot). Can I dream? I don't have any more fingernails, so let's hope that is not necessary. No drama, please. And with that I close. May BP heal, may Mat Latos pitch well and please may Choo find his stroke again.
