Last weekend, I recommended that you all watch the A's and Rays series because it was a match up of two solid young and hungry teams.
And if you took my advice, you would have seen Dallas Braden's perfect game!
Well let me make another weekend viewing suggestion:
Did you know the Reds are only 1/2 a game out of first place? Probably not. I didn't until this morning. A Reds victory tonight and Cincinnati will be in first place by themselves in mid May.
Now granted, they beat up Pittsburgh and the Pirates are no Cardinals.
But they are at home and maybe a little momentum could push them into first.
Cincinnati should be a baseball haven. It should be mentioned in the same breath as New York, Boston and St. Louis as baseball first fan bases.
The 2000s were rough for Cincy and my pennant prediction was premature...
But this could be a baseball revival in the birthplace of professional baseball.
If you are in Cincinnati, show up.
Just hope Aaron Harang shows up as well.
