Honeymoon's over. Reds fell flat on their face against the Cubs, and more than anything, it's a wake-up call to get to work and beat these teams that they need to beat. Tip your cap to Travis Wood, who showed the Reds why they drafted him in the 2nd round a while ago.

Tonight their task will be a little bit easier than last night, as they have Edwin Jackson to deal with. They'll go with Tony Cingrani, who was fine his last time out against St. Louis.

Go Reds! They're my favorite team!
