What people don't find annoying are pitchers going for their ninth win like Mat Latos is attempting to do today. People are also completely cool when the opposing pitcher is 1-7 with a very Eric Milton-y ERA 8.01. Please keep up the
good work, Jonathan Sanchez! The Reds have some sweeping to do, Sunday getaway lineup notwithstanding.
Winning today will place the Reds within two wins of their franchise record for consecutive victories and will account for their longest winning streak since 1999. A little known fact about the 1999 winning streak is that Jack McKeon slept through 4 of those wins. Perhaps when the Red Legs win today, the Reds Hall of Fame will take notice that many of Dusty's wins during this streak were the product of his free-form jazz lineup construction. Hopefully, the Reds will take another in a series of Giant Steps and leave the Rockies in a Kind of Blue.
Go Reds! They're my favorite team!
