Every one's asking me if we're going this weekend and, sadly, we don't have tickets. We did have our seats for the Saturday night Civil Rights game, but the Reds contacted me and asked me not to come because of our current 0-4 record in our seats. So we sold the tickets. We may try and go anyway, but it will be in different seats so don't worry Reds' fans.
This series is for first place in the NL Central, with the Cards coming into Cincy a half game up after embarrassing themselves against Houston. The Reds, of course, are on a roll. I guess this weekend we find out if the Reds are good or the Pirates are just awful. I'm hoping for the former. So far this year, the Reds are only 2-4 against the Cards. If they have any hope of winning (a very winnable) division, they have to play well against the Cards. After this weekend your division leaders could be exactly what all the experts predicted: the Nationals, the Reds, and the Padres.
Stay tuned . . .
