The Texas Rangers come to town tonight, and they’ll be greeted by the smiling face of Matt Belisle on the pitching mound. After such a promising start to the interleague schedule, the Reds have dropped two in a row and things feel back to normal now.
Vicente Padilla will pitch for the Rangers. Feel free to discuss it here, and all “Walker, Texas Ranger” references are encouraged. References to the now-demoted Gary Majewski are discouraged, unless they are funny.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
