As I sit here, the Reds are up 6-3 on the Pirates in the top of the sixth inning: the ferocious battle for fifth place in the NLC is on! The Reds are a half game down on the Pirates after that sweeping at the hands of the Nats, making this a pride fight for the ages.
I'm coming in late on it after sweltering in the Indiana humidity helping the tot master the art of bike riding without training wheels. It's nice to see the wheels coming off in a good way for a change.
So, what the heck is up with the Reds' rotation anyway? There seems to be much discussion of who's available to fill the hole left by Kyle Lohse and not to mention…well…about everyone but Aaron Harang.
Ooh, McLouth steals one from Adam Dunn. I'd better start paying attention. It's a pride fight!
