Here we go on the Reds again

About two months ago we got really excited about the Reds. Cincinnati is loaded with young talent, the Great American Ballpark is gorgeous (and is the best-named stadium in baseball) and Cincinnati is a blossoming city. That last part we made up.

So when the Reds' young talent makes as big of an impact as it did Tuesday, we can only help but get excited.

In his MLB debut, Jay Bruce went nuts, going 3-3 with a double, two RBIs and a handful of other nice stats helping the Reds to a 9-6 win over Pittsburgh.

He wasn't the only youngster doing wonders. Joey Votto went 3-5 with a run and Johnny Cueto gave up two earned over five innings for the win.

Hey, all their names start with a J. Steve Rushin would probably make a play on words about that.

Start rooting for the Reds. Seriously. They're going to be fucking raw. Same with the Rays. They're raw, too. And young. Maybe we should be writing about the Rays.

If they would just dump Dunn and Griffey, they might actually start resembling an MLB franchise again.

it's really a shame that "great american ballpark" is a corporate sponsorship, because it sounds so good. it's like the great mall of america or something. or the great american novel.
