Last night in the Cincinnati Reds 3-2 loss to the Houston fuckin’ Astros, Adam Dunn hit his 10th homerun of the young season. The Reds lost to Woody Williams, Woody freakin’ Williams last night, due to the fact that Edwin Encarnacion made 2 errors (should have had 3) allowing critical runs to score.
The Reds now wake up this morning in last place in the NL Central, and this is just fucking horrendous. This has me in a terrible mood and I honestly don’t know what to say other than it’s time to put up, or shut up, or fire your manager.
The Reds play today at 12:35. Today starts the turnaround. Today, May 9th, the Reds begin their ascent towards making hell for every other team that opposes them. If they don’t go on a serious run, with the offensive skill players that they have, then it’s time to bid farewell to Jerry Narron and his bottle of Grey Goose.
I’m in a bad mood because I get to spend all day with my boss, and I get to think about the Reds who invent new ways by the night to lose ballgames.
That said, Dunn and Josh Hamilton have really been bright spots on this underachieving and dissapointing group of clusterfucks.
Have you ever heard the expression ‘it’s a game of runs’? Well, that is what I think about with Adam Dunn. The guy is seriously just one big peak and valley. When he’s hot, he can carry a team on his back with his bat. When he hits a homerun, seemingly for a few weeks he hits them in bunches. That is the kind of success we’re enjoying from him now, as he now as 4 homeruns in may. When he’s slumping and people are booing him off the field, I just tell them “peaks and valleys”.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say he’s going to out-homer Alex Rodriguez. A-Rod has a nice head start, already at 15 homeruns for the season, but Dunner is going to catch him. Time will tell.
