Let’s recap tonight’s titanic struggle….

FINAL
Pittsburgh 5
Cincinnati 0

W: C. Morton (5-1)
L: B. Arroyo (3-4)
BOXSCORE

POSITIVES
–None.

NEGATIVES
–Everything.

NOT-SO-RANDOM THOUGHTS
–Wow, four losses in five games against the Pirates in 2011 isn’t good, is it?

–Ya know, a huge part of the reason I’ve been stumping for Janish to get increased playing time is because Dusty has never been tempted to hit him anywhere other than eighth. The whole “Janish in the 2-hole” experiment needs to stop. Now. If not sooner.

–My cap is tipped to Charlie Morton. Impressive performance.

–Oh well, can’t win ’em all. Reds will get the Buccos tomorrow.

–It’s been a while, but this seems appropriate. It occurs to me that we never decided on a name for this guy:

Goat Braces!
