Have y’all seen Alyson Footer’s blog?
I’m throwing it a shout out because I am so enjoying the Mother’s Day luncheon pics!
First of all, that luncheon looks nicer than my wedding.
Second, I’m enjoying looking in the background of the shots. I’ve spied Brownie. He looks hungry. And there’s a bunch of Japanese men seated at the table behind Russ Ortiz. Where’s Wandy? Can anyone find him?
All I’m saying is, if I had Alyson Footer’s job, there’d be way more shots of JD, Brownie, and players on the bubble. And Wandy. This is what the people want to see! Geez, we see Berkman all the time.
Second in the NL Central, the Reds are the only team in our division with starting pitching good enough to challenge the Cubs long term. It’s true that Bronson Arroyo isn’t worth his salary right now. (Unless he’s on the road – What’s with that?) And yes, Volquez needs to settle down. (He will! I believe it.)
Yes, I’m getting on the bandwagon, and I’m getting on now.
Finally, this Onion Sports article made me chuckle. And it caused me to look into how greedy Drayton is. I mean, how much MLB tickets cost across the country. I ended up happening upon this article about how greedy Drayton is. Go figure! Check it out and you’ll see that we consistently rank higher in revenue than we do in payroll.
Wait – I wanted to end on a positive note.
Hey, we play the Rockies tomorrow! At 12-18, they’re worse than we are! And I like Paulino. If he does well enough, I’ll write a post justifying my ridiculous confidence in this unproven arm.
