Shame that the sinkhole swallowed the stadium last night and the game we were so looking forward to never happened. That would have been a good one. It's even more impressive that they were able to rebuild the stadium so quickly. The taxpayer money they used will set the county back another 20 years, but it's only fair.

Tonight should hopefully go a whole lot better for the Reds. They have Tony Cingrani going, who's coming off of 7 shutout innings in LA, and who may be pitching better than anyone in the Reds rotation right now.

Unfortunately, he's going against Jake Westbrook, who threw a shutout against the Reds the last time he faced them. We can't catch a break, can we?

Don't do what you did yesterday. Go Reds.
