The Cincinnati Reds (12-16-3) played the Cleveland Indians to close out the inaugural 2010 Cactus League season and tied yesterday. And nobody cares because OPENING DAY IS TOMORROW!
Ahem. Excuse me, I seem to be a little excited BECAUSE REAL BASEBALL IS ABOUT TO BEGIN!
Seriously, I haven’t looked this forward to a Reds season since the apocalyptic day that the Reds hired Dusty Baker to doom themselves to crapitude for the next 3 years.
But that doesn’t matter because OPENING DAY IS TOMORROW!
As for the last meaningless game of the spring, Homer Bailey copied his peers and also wasn’t very good, allowing 6 runs over 6 innings. The offense was solid, though, scoring 10 thanks to a 5-run 7th.
Tomorrow, the Reds open the 2010 season against the St. Louis Cardinals. In case you can’t tell, I can’t wait.
