I would like to start today’s game thread off with an apology. Yesterday, I exposed a lot of hatred towards a variety of teams, most notable of those being the St. Louis Cardinals. That was not right of me and I should not have done so.
To make up for that, I would like to display all the ways I actually like the St. Louis Cardinals. I like watching your fans cheer Shin-Soo Choo for dropping two fly balls only to have him lace a 3-RBI double against you in the 9th. I like watching your pitchers walk countless batters in an inning. I like watching your fans leave their seats in large numbers late in a game. But most of all, I like how you dream about Brandon Phillips at night!
So with all the love I am sharing today, I hope Bronson Arroyo allows your batters to return to their seat in a quick and speedy fashion today while he twirls a masterpiece. I hope your fans did not trip over themselves yesterday on their way out the gate and are able to find their way back tonight to see the Reds offense continue to terrorize opposing pitching. And most of all, I hope you did not dream about Brandon Phillips last night. Instead, I hope you dreamt about Joey Votto retiring the final out from the seat of his pants yesterday!
As always… GO REDS! Beat the WLBs!
