Reds Win Despite Baker

After two extra-inning games with the Chicago Cubs, the Cincinnati Reds were looking forward to an easy series against the Washington Nationals. I mean, the Nationals are so bad.

The Reds won the first game of the series, although the team scored only 3 runs. Of course, anyone who thought this team was well-put together and would be able to get by on just its pitching is a moron. I’m looking at you Walt Jocketty.

The second game was going well last night until rain arrived in the bottom of the 9th with Francisco Cordero on the mound. The Reds were ahead 2-0 when the umps delayed the game. The delay lasted for more than 2 hours! And Dusty Baker, pitcher killer that he is, returned Cordero to the mound. Obviously due to the great results seen from Aaron Harang a few weeks ago.

Of course, Cordero blew the save, but Baker’s idiocy gets taken off the hook because Jonny Gomes drove in a run in the 12th to allow the Reds to win. Lack of offense aside, I would be enjoying the Reds so much more if Baker were nowhere near this team.
