Other Notes

  • It’s set to be beautiful in the Cincinnati area this evening. Maybe go for a walk or a picnic. Maybe go, say, somewhere around 6:40 PM (that’s what time this game starts, by the way).
  • If you get the Ovation Channel, they’re playing Conan the Barbarian AND Conan the Destroyer tonight back to back. You’d probably enjoy watching both of those fine examples of cinematography!
  • Joey Votto has gone 13 for 34 with a dinger, triple, 4 doubles, 5 walks, and only 1 K in his career against Michael Wacha, who’s starting tonight for the Cardinals. .382/.450/.647. Interesting time for a day off.
  • Go Reds! They’re my favo...well, just go, Reds.
