The Good

John Wall had a great game. Oh. Wait. Sorry. Rain delays had me watching more NBA tonight than baseball.

So, Bryan Price takes a look at the weather radar and pulls the trigger in the bottom of the 6th with the rain about to come down again and an official game hanging in the balance. Calls for one Master Christopher Heisey. My boy, Heisey delivers.

Good work, Jonathan Broxton & Sam LeCure, but Logan Ondrusek is already my Knob Creek Player of the Game.

Zack Cozart got a couple of hits tonight. Hope you were up to see it.

The Bad

Just the Cubs.

The Ugly

The Cincinnati weather. You people are lucky I love you. After midnight. On a Tuesday night. The Cubs. Out of bourbon. Child, please.

Not so random thoughts …

Bullpen did yeoman’s work out there with all the delays. That’s one that could have gotten away from them. A good, grind-it-out win.

The Daily Billy:  Didn’t mention Billy Hamilton above because Billy wasn’t GOOD. He was GREAT. Rumor has it that Billy Hamilton has as many dingers as Robinson Cano. Opportunity Cost, yeah? 3 hits. Goes yard. Beautiful belly-flop of a catch. This is the kind of game that makes you think, hey, maybe this can work.

George Grande and Mat Latos sure have a lot of coffee together. And they keep going over the same subjects. What’s up with that? Mat can’t bring himself to shoot a deer??? Wonder what Homer thinks of that.  I think I ‘m done now.

Talk amongst yourselves.
