I’m back, and Alonso is back in LF

Good to be with you from the ballpark again…

Stubbs 8
Renteria 6
Votto 3

Alonso 7

Leake 1

*Interesting that Yonder Alonso is back in LF today. While I was out, it seemed from my reading as if the Reds had scrapped the idea that he could play there in the Majors. His last game there was Aug. 6 at Chicago.

*An MRI taken on LHP Dontrelle Willis’ left forearm came back normal. He is expected to make his start on Saturday at PIT as scheduled.

*If you were asleep late last night, here is my story on two last minute signings of top Draft pick Robert Stephenson and LHP/hoops prospect Amir Garrett.

*Homer Bailey, Logan Ondrusek and Dave Sappelt visited troops at the National Naval Medical Center.

*Today is Ryan Hanigan’s 31st birthday.

Well, as we all know, 12-3 is needed in the next 15 to reach the desired record in August. So the Black Magic Number sits at four. Four more losses in the month of August and I am officially declaring the season over. Cmon Reds, hang in there.
