"Last week I helped my friend stay put. It's a lot easier'n helpin' 'em move. I just went over to his house and made sure that he did not start to load **** into a truck."
Absolutely the right move. Don't panic and start changing everything up. Trust that Leake can at least match Zito... And now if we lose today, tomorrow doesn't feel like a death march. Cueto's injury put us in a bad spot, but they made the right call.
Here's some important news....As of 8pm central time on October 10th, the Reds have NOT been eliminated from the playoffs.
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
Regular Reds playoff lineup today.
Good luck Reds fans!
Legends are made in games like we get to watch the Reds play in today.
In the totally pointless factoid of the day:
The Kentucky Wildcats basketball team won the NCAA Basketball National Championship for the first time in 1948. The following fall, the Cleveland Indians won the World Series. Since then, the Wildcats have won seven more NC's (1949, 1951, 1958, 1978, 1996, 1998, and 2012) and in all but 2012, the New York Yankees have won the ensuing World Series.
The Yanks are still alive, but it would be nice to see the Reds break that odd streak this season.
