Brandon Finnegan threw probably the best game of his young MLB career and had the misfortune to be up against Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw. A 1-0 complete game loss has to be both encouraging and discouraging. Good because it shows that Finnegan is all we have been believing him to be as a future ace level pitcher, bad because two hits by the offense in a game is not going to win many, if any, games.

It looks like Tucker Barnhardt is becoming ever more essential to the Reds as Devin Mesoraco was placed on the DL today with a torn labrum in his left shoulder. Rotten luck continues, as Snacks has pretty much been disabled since he signed the multiyear contract.
On a slightly happier front, Johnny Kueto starts tonight against his old team. Should be fun to see him again.

Reds pitching is on a hopefully unrealistic pace to completely obliterate the single season home runs allowed by a team record. As has been the case often when losing, most (in yesterday's game, all) of the opposition scoring happens along the lines of walk a batter or two then give up a long ball.

It's been two seasons so far: home and road. Needless to say, the home games have been a lot more fun, as the Reds have won all three series so far while only managing a single win in six road games. Which team will show up tonight?

Now, honestly, who would you rather watch--the originally scheduled, but tender bicepped, Alfredo Simon, or top prospect Robert Stephenson?
I thought so.
