Bailey Good, Sabathia Better

Homer Bailey pitched a good game today....5 2/3 innings of five hit, two run ball and racked up four K's and more important no walks today. But....CC Sabathia was better throwing a two run,complete game against the Reds. CC fanned nine to even his record at 8-8. The road trip ends with a 3-3 record and I still say it has to be considered a pretty good six games against two very good teams.

The loss was a costly one for the Reds in more ways than the won/loss record. Jerry Hairston pulls a hamstring and will be given an MRI in Cincinnati tomorrow to find the extend of this injury.

The Reds go into the All-Star break with a 46-50 record and playing pretty fair ball. If you would have told me Aaron Harang would only have three wins at the All-Star break and the Reds would only be four games under .500......Well you just have to believe that Harang will win more than three games after the break.

It's been plenty of good and plenty of bad baseball in the first half....Hope to be writing about more good the second half.....It will be interesting....Enjoy the All-Star game at Yankee Stadium, and get ready for the 4 games series against the Mets at Great American Ballpark starting on Thursday night. I plan to take in the first two games of this series so come on Reds!!!!!!!!!
