I found it interesting that when I rail on the Reds sputtering offense they open up a can and score 14 runs and 15 hits on the Astros in the very next game. I must now test the theory that this modest blog is spurring my beloved Red Legs to greatness. I shall do that with a very simple rant: “How long has it been since a Reds player hit for the cycle? I mean, sheesh…”
There you go. Brandon Phillips – hit your cycle tonight and I’ll join the ranks of Miss Cleo, Psychic Friends Network and Nostradamus. I shall be watching. Always watching.
One other note – it was cool seeing the roof close during the game last night. I could tell the cameramen and producers were transfixed by it too. I once saw the dome close in Toronto – it’s amazing to see such a massive structure move, even if it’s slower than a Lincoln Continental changing lanes in South Florida.
