Josh Hamilton hit home run number 5 last night. Unfortunately the Reds bullpen had a 3rd meltdown in 4 games. The pen could not hold a 6-1 lead in the 7th. Keep slugging, Josh!

My Favorite Skit by Monty Python

Josh is at it Again!

Josh Hamilton got the start in Center Field last night (Ryan Freel moved to 3rd base) and he was 2-4 with a walk and scored twice. Josh and Freel sparked a rally in the 7th to win the game for Cincy. Way to go Josh!

Josh Watch

Josh Hamilton hit his 3rd home run and collected his 7th RBI in 18 at bats last night in a losing effort. The bullpen, that had been stellar to start the season, had a meltdown. I think Cincy has the chemistry for a play-off bound season. Hey Coach Narron, please give Josh more at-bats!

Josh Hamilton

Josh is a kid who made some bad choices. He was suspended from baseball and other than a few at bats in AA ball, he hasn't played in 4 years. He is one of the most talented players in baseball and was bound to be unheard of by anybody. Then he came face to face with Jesus. He readily admits that Christ saved his life when he was heading for death and destruction. With the help of a godly wife and support from friends and family, he was picked up by the Cincinnati Reds and given a second chance. On Tuesday night he got his first big league start, playing center field, and hit a home run in his 2nd at bat. Last night he hit a double and home run while playing right field. Last night he said that by all accounts, he shouldn't be playing, but by the grace of God he was given another chance to play. Way to go, Josh. I hope you have a great career and continue to give the glory to God.

Dunn's Swing

Adam Dunn hit 2 home runs to reach 200 for his career. Here is a picture of #199.

Ah, Springtime!

Hope springs eternal at this time each year. The crack of the bats, the smack of a ball against leather, the smell of tobacco juice in the dugout...well, two out of three ain't bad as Meat Loaf used to say.

Anyways, the Reds started out the season on a good note by beating the free-spending Cubs 5-1. (The Cubs spent over $300,000,000 in the off-season to bolster the line-up) Harang threw 7 innings allowing 1 unearned run, Griffey had two hits and Adam Dunn did his worst impression of Ichiro you have ever seen. If you don't understand that last comment, Dunn had said he was just going to work on putting the ball in play instead of home runs or strikeouts. The only two balls he put in play yesterday became souvenirs for the fans in the cheap seats. At this pace he will have 324 home runs for the season. That might be a record or something.
