The most promising change in the Reds prospects lately has been the revelation that the Cardinals are not invincible. While the Reds dropped 2 of 3 to the Diamondbacks, they gained a game on the Cards who were busy getting swept by the Rangers. Hopefully, the Cardinal slide continues and the Reds pick up the pace.
The Reds march into Oakland tonight for the start of a tough two-game series. It’s a late game and won’t get going until 10:00, but once it does, feel free to discuss the Arroyo vs. Milone grudge match here.
Also, and this needs to be said, let’s keep it clean tonight, fellas. It got a bit out of hand in the recap the other night. All of the editors were out of town or in bed, so we didn’t notice for a while, but we do have a commenting policy (which I suggest you read) and if you violate it you can be banned with no notice or explanation. If you ever find yourself unable to post comments, there’s a reason. Disagreement is awesome as long as it’s respectful.
