So I got to thinking about the swagger this club had when they started off 5-0. They lost a get away game, no big deal. Then the wheels seemed to come off against the D-Backs, then off to San Diego. We all thought it would end up worse, but we got 2 out of 3 there. Then back to Cincy to face the Pirates. Oh boy what a nightmare! The Pirates were just unstoppable less one game. Yes, the team beat itself up for much of that series too. The win today does save some face, but how in the world did the D-Backs just pull that off, again?
The point is, this team needs to find that swagger tonight before they make the short trek to St. Louis. They need to have some fire in their bellies and really come to life against the division opponent.
The good news: the pitching match ups do not look completely horrible.
The bad news: our bullpen has been worked way too much this last week.
Let's hope to see some good old fashion ball games this weekend!
