I have to say, I don’t like this style of play, but it makes for some interesting evenings. The Reds last night began a string of 17 games in 17 days, which is followed up by their only off day of May, which is preceded by another long string of games to end the month without a day off, and another brutal west coast trip which always finds the Reds scuffling. If you were wondering what brought my reference to a classic film like Vision Quest, well now you should know.
Ahh, what a movie. My glory days of high school brought back to life in the midst of this blog. If you were a high school wrestler, or even experienced a time when you trained your ass off for any sport, I suggest you spend a rainy day watching this movie, still. It’s a classic.
Ok, now that I’m done with my little plug of the day–we’re about to find out a lot about this Cincinnati ballclub. Good or bad, at the end of this month this team will either reveal itself as a surprise team (like I predicted), very much alive in the National league, or a complete catastrophe disguised as a big league ballclub, hovering around .500 or below. It’s going to be interesting.
