Gonna stay up late again?
I probably will, and I hope that I’m not wondering why when the clock strikes 1:00AM or so. The offense was simply putrid last night, and part of that blame can be laid at the feet of manager Jerry Narron for giving us a lineup that includes Norris Hopper at leadoff, and a bottom three of Juan Castro, David Ross, and the pitcher’s spot. With those four “hitters” in a row, no wonder Randy Wolf struck out 42 Reds last night.
For what it’s worth, this was mentioned in last night’s game thread, but I thought I’d throw it out there again: Bobby Livingston will be called up from AAA to get the start tomorrow against LA.
Okay, here’s the game thread. Is tonight the night that starts the Reds on a long winning streak? My glass is half full! (For now.)
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
