    I predict that Jay Bruce, getting frustrated with getting robbed of hits 1-3 times a game, hits it where they can't take it away. Twice.
    Benzinger backing and calling! And the 1990 world championship series belongs to the Cincinnati Reds!

    Re: 4-10-10 Reds vs. Cubs

    I just checked, and I'm in seventh heaven...game is televised on WGN again. I can't remember the last time I've watched so much Reds baseball early in the season. Opening day televised on ESPN, the first two of the Cubs on WGN, and also the Monday (or tuesday...I forget) game on MLB network versus the fish. For a displaced redlegs fan...bliss. :O)

    I'd love a win today to put us over .500

    Victories against the Cubs are the best. It would make me very happy to go to Mike Leake's major league debut with a sweep of the Cubs on the line.

    Agreed, let's hope that he plays some servicable D at third and gets a hit or two.

    Nice slider to get Theriot. First 2 fastballs came in at 89 and 91. I hope he's just warming up. Looks like he's only throwing at 80% or so. But he's working quickly and throwing strikes, so it's hard to complain.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Harang throwing a lot of off-speed stuff here in the 1st. Keeping guys off balance well.

    Lee reaches for a slider and K's. K, GB to P, K. I'll take it!

    Nice inning from Harang.
