–Here’s your mini-recap: Cincinnati jumps out to a 4-0 lead, leads most of the game, then completely blows it against the Cardinals. Again. This disaster culminated with JJ Hoover surrendering a grand slam to Allen Craig in the seventh.
I give up.
–It’s really strange how this Reds team seems ten times more frustrating than those crappy early-2000s teams. Expectations, huh?
Write your own recap, gang. I just don’t have it in me.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
