Partly cloudy,rain. Winds blowing out to right field at 5-10 m.p.h. Game time temperature around 75.
Last night was another in a surprising number of high-impact, "turning point"-style games on the young season. Not only did it finish in a totally bombastic walk-off, but it allowed the Reds to hit the road with a winning record.
The schedule is pretty wacky this month. The Reds play a pair of two games series this week: first the Braves, then the Mets. They play the Braves six times in the next ten days. With a three-game set at Yankee Stadium (and five days total in New York) this weekend, it'll be a challenging stretch.
If he ever fell off, Joey Votto is now back on the radar. The best way we can support him is to write your fourth and sixth hole hitters and ask them to fund some lineup protection. Joey may not need it, but the team does.
