First they came for the Arroyo, but I said nothing for I liked Arroyo. Then they came for Leake, but I said nothing for I liked Leake. Then they came for Latos, and I said nothing because I was too busy celebrating another series win against the Astros. Starting pitching hiccups notwithstanding, the Reds go for a road sweep today against the Astros.
Despite hammering the Wandy Man last night, this may be easier said than done as teams mired in eight game losing streaks (other than the Cubs) often show up to the ballpark with an added incentive to win.
Our Goodroyo takes the mound this afternoon in Houston having dominated the Astros recently by collecting eight wins in his past nine starts. The Astros will counter with Jordan Lyles, who seems to have a Sam-Diane relationship with the Astros' front office. Having been shuffled between Houston and AAA Oklahoma City four times already this season, Lyles will try to make his case to stick with the big club. Hopefully, after today's game, Mr. Lyles will be able to catch the next Thunder-Spurs game in OKC.
IF IT'S SUNDAY, IT'S MEET THE THREADZ! GO REDS!
