Let's try this again, shall we? Yesterday's game was "rained out," but we all know that Slyde probably just had some new neighbors to snoop on or a new calculator to play with, so he had the game canceled. What a sly[de] dog he is. Shut up, you know you like puns.

Mike Leake is looking for a third straight win, opposing J.A. Happ, who must throw darts at a picture of Ruben Amaro on a daily basis for sending him from the Phillies to the DisAstros. Man, talk about a downgrade... It'll be interesting to see what happens if Leake pitches well, as someone's gunna have to get sent down when Bailey and Cueto get back. It looks as if LeCure is slated for the 'pen, taking Carlos Fisher's place, and Travis Wood has been far from the ace he was inexplicably dubbed to be at the beginning of the season. Maybe he should check out the men's department at Macy's...

Scott Rolen must realize how dire the 3B situation is, as he was caught taking unauthorized swings in the cages. Good ol' Scotty, trying to get back to HIS Reds. Although I can't say I'm thrilled by this, as he isn't known for his Wolverine-like healing times.

Not sure why we've decided that the W-L-W-L pattern is a Fibonacci Sequence, but hey, here's to a win tonight!

14 - 14
