Another West Coast game tonight, and Aaron Harang will take the mound in his hometown, trying to keep the Good Ship Cincinnati afloat. David Wells will go for San Diego.
There really isn’t much that we can say about this west coast swing at this point. Yes, it’s been horrific. Yes, this seems to happen every time the Reds go west.
Let’s just hope the Reds can pick up a win tonight and tomorrow. If the good guys can somehow win this series, it will take some of the sting out of this road trip.
As for me, I probably won’t be able to stay up for much of tonight’s titanic struggle. I have to get up early tomorrow to catch a flight to the Big Apple. Don’t ransack the place while I’m gone.
Enjoy the game….well, let’s hope we all enjoy it tonight.
UPDATE: A picture from Redleg Nation editor Chris, who wasn’t kidding when he said he had great seats for tonight’s game:
