Yesterday was the sort of gut-punch loss that prompted a lot of "Why is he on the team?" and "Why is he playing, even if he's on the team?"-style questions. I think these same thoughts after a game like that, but there's a tendency to lose sight of a few things....

I think the we hit a glitch. Let me take out the cartridge and blow on it, while everyone thinks of a double-entendre. OK.

The Reds' trip to DC has been significantly less enjoyable than that spring class trip where you get to stay in your own hotel room for the first time. There have, however, probably been larger servings of booze.
