Five straight losses, the Reds are in last place again, on their way to yet another losing season, and Jack Armstrong is on the mound tonight. What are those reasons to stay optimistic, Mr. Castellini?
Discuss the game here if you can bear to watch it tonight.
(And, no, I don’t think Edinson Volquez is going to flop a la Jack Armstrong. I think he’s going to be a great pitcher for the Reds for many years. I’m just sick of Marty mentioning Armstrong’s name every time Volquez makes a bad pitch, so I’m beating him to the punch tonight.)
