Here’s your game thread.
As Bill told you, Gary Majewski is back, just in time for me to go see the team in person. Wonderful. The Java Man — Todd Coffey — was sent to Louisville; he had a bad night last night, but Marty spent part of an inning talking about how good Coffey had been in his last 15 appearances or so. I can’t really argue with the demotion, though others were much more deserving (Mr. Stanton, I’m looking at you)…but I absolutely dread seeing Majewski again.
This team is just lousy. I’ll probably watch the game tonight, but I’m not excited about it. These guys have just drained my enthusiasm. They play like a little league team much of the time, and they’ve been embarrassed this week by the team that had the worst record in the big leagues (the Reds are tied for that distinction now, by the way).
Maybe Matt Belisle can get the team back on track. Let’s hope.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
