Are the Bats Back?

Not the ball parkIt’s so nice to come home from a long weekend, off the grid at Pokegon State Park, to find that the Reds seems to have remembered how to score runs. To think: while I was meandering the trails and swatting at mosquitoes, Homer Bailey was busy getting his first win since the beginning of time. While I was taking in the view from Hell’s Point, Brandon Phillips was celebrating his birthday with three RBI. And while I was tasting Indiana-made wines at the nearby Satek Winery, the Reds were doing nothing, because I did that today and they had the day off.

I’m not generally superstitious, but in this case, I choose to believe the Reds need me to be on vacation in order to return to form. If you need me, I’ll be at the spa until September.
