Coping with a day off

I’m sure the Cincinnati Reds can use the day off after playing about 100 games in a row away from home and losing 80 of them*. But I always miss baseball, even after stretches like that.

But today is an actual off-day before the Reds start a series at home with the San Francisco Giants tomorrow. Finding content when the team doesn’t play can be challenging.

But all that sounds like work. So instead, here’s a picture of Alfonso Soriano missing a routine fly ball.
