The Daily Brief: Rolling in to New York

Last Game
The Reds split the series with the Braves by losing the game they should have won yesterday. Cueto only lasted four innings and the offense only came up with two runs. I turned off Adventure Time for this??

Next Game
Headed to New York to give the 20-16 Mets a visit. Mike Leake (0-5, 7.11 ERA) will face off against Johan Santana (1-2, 2.92 ERA). Maybe I’ll make plans to go to a movie rather than suffer through this one.

The Bat is Still the Most Interesting Thing in Reds Land
Remember when we said that the bat that Joey Votto used to hit those two-regular-home-runs-plus-one-walk-off-grand-slam was headed to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown? Well, not yet. He wants to keep using it for a while first, seeing as it’s such a quality piece of lumber.

Look! I journalismed!

(Not to be down on John Fay for reporting this: not only has this story been a huge traffic source, but it’s hard to find stuff to say about this team every day, and it’s only May.)

What to Say to Sound Smart at the Water Cooler
In the teams’ history, the Reds are 302-259 against the Mets. However, they were only 2-5 in against them last season.
