So…How ’bout them Reds?

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I'm finally posting again after the long weekend of hauling boxes and getting couches stuck in patio doors thanks to a moment of break time at work and an understanding boss. We've been without a connection at the new homestead, but my Crack Technical Staff is working on it today.

Nevertheless, I'm cheerful today after my very short commute to work. I didn't even roll out of bed until 6:20 today and I was at the office by 7:30. I even curled my hair. Amazing.

So, how 'bout them Reds, huh? It took a head injury to Ryan Freel to even get them to win one against the Pirates after, what, a five-game losing streak? And, in a way, I was sort of disappointed to see them win. They've fallen so far already that I just want to see them keep dropping until the ownership has no choice but to make a change. On the other hand, it seems like they already have no choice but to do that and we see all that's gotten us, so there you go.

I also just have a little bit of a sick fascination with seeing what new way they're going to find to blow it this time. It's painful but sort of irresistable, like worrying a sore tooth.

Still, I hope that Freel is feeling better soon and that the rehab assignments of Eddie Guardado and Josh Hamilton go well. They're two players that have the potential to make a big difference. I just hope that the team management isn't planning for their return to be the only improvement to the Reds, or we're going to be in for a lot more pain.
