Ten Reasons the Cubs Will Lose to the Reds

10. Ryan Freel is healthy, well-rested, and (as far as I know) not in jail.
9. Now that Derrek Lee's contract is all wrapped up, he's on schedule to be injured.
8. Austin Kearns loves to play at Wrigley. Hey, stop looking at him covetously!
7. Sure, they swept the Cardinals, but did they really *learn* anything from the experience?
6. Bronson Arroyo is looking for home run #2.
5. Deep down, they want to lose. It's the only way to get rid of Dusty Baker.
4. Javy Valentín owns Greg Maddux. Yes, that will play into today's game.
3. Two words: Glendon Rusch.
2. They're all torn up because their deal with the Scrubby Bubble fell through.
1. It's just what they do.

    Right now it’s 2-0 Reds. Griffey and Dunn have already taken Rusch deep and it’s only the second inning.

    I’ve created a #RedsNation IRC channel on IRC Global, all Reds fans are invited to use it. The server is us.ircglobal.org OR irc.proxemic.net with ports 6661-6669 active. Um, Freel free to use it any time, that’s what it’s there for, it’s realtime IRC chat BY Reds fans, FOR Reds fans.

    If you need help learning the basics of IRC try one of these:

    If the Reds channel gets used by a lot of us, I’ll get it listed there.

    An excellent tutorial on IRC basics.

    I agree with numbers 3 and 6 so far.

    DONE! Arroyo just dialed 9 on Rusch in the third inning.

  4. KC2HMZ says:

    Fourth inning, Adam Dunn again. 4-0.

    We’re gonna solo homer them to death.

  5. Geki says:

    Gee, thanks. I didn’t make that point 10 minutes before you or anything.


  6. KC2HMZ says:

    Arroyo is supposed to lead off the bottom of the fifth.

    Just sayin’.

    Thanks for keeping the commentary going while I was trapped in the cubicle farm, guys. All these freaking day games are the reason the Cubs perennially suck.
