It's not home, but I'm guessing the Reds are relieved to be in Chicago, especially on the heels of a victory.
It's past time to make excuses for Homer Bailey, but his ugly numbers and peripherals are still being dragged down by that black hole of a first inning in his first start against the Cardinals. Like Mat Latos, he just needs to trust his stuff and try not to let base-runners and bad calls rattle him. His stuff looked great against the Nationals.
It's 4/20, which I'm being told Jim Morrison's Birthday, the day they started making wall posters of Salvador Dali paintings and when drugs were invented.
