BOX SCORE

POSITIVES
–The Reds won. And Aroldis Chapman is great.

NEGATIVES
–The Reds blew an 8-0 lead. Just a disgusting display, from a mismanaged bullpen all the way to some shoddy fielding.

NOT-SO-POSITIVE THOUGHTS
–I’ve never felt worse after a win. That was just a disaster. Thank goodness Clutch Man Monie came through again and gave the Reds a victory that they didn’t deserve.

–I said yesterday that this team isn’t fun to watch. In response to that, the Reds promptly played a game that was almost impossible to watch. It’s like they’re trying to teach me a lesson.

–Prepare to see Dontrelle Willis in a Reds uniform for the first time tomorrow.

–Of course, the good guys are back to .500…and a sweep in Milwaukee would be a fun way to finish the first half, wouldn’t it?
