"All I can tell them is pick a good one and sock it." --BABE RUTH
Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
I didn't even know Pedro Villarreal was called back up. That tells you everything you need to know about this team. He's not even a good AAA pitcher. And he's on our 25-man roster? I don't care if it's briefly. He has no business being on the team.
I'm resigned to the fact the Reds SHOULD hang on to the 2nd WC. The teams closest to us aren't playing any better and unlikely to catch us. Anything higher is not going to happen.
Can someone cite an arcane statistic about the 2012 Giants to make me feel better about this latest disaster? Thanks in advance.
If the Cards are the 1st WC and the Reds the 2nd, will the FO have the wisdom to start Cingrani? I doubt it.
