I Love a Good Shutout This Time of Year!

Hey, Reds fans! Before yesterday’s game, I was in serious need of something to lift my spirits, and boy, did that game deliver!

Oh, hai, just pitching a shutout – NBD.

Yep, just keepin’ the shutout going! 1-2-3 eighth? You got it, dude!

Scared ya, didn’t I? Don’t worry, I got this.

In the words of Nuke LaLoosh, “I love winning. Ya know what I’m saying? It’s like – better than losing!” This is how our guys need to be playing – killing it defensively and putting on an offensive show.

Jonny went big last night (Seriously, Dusty, I’m not kidding. Let him play. Every. Day.). Fred, BP, Joey, and Jay all came through in a big way, and even the Goose and Monie put down a couple of hits last night. It was an excellent game, and exactly what the Reds needed – something to get their confidence up. Let’s do it again tonight!

Today is June 28, 2011, and exactly 30 years ago today, the world was blessed with not only one of the best ballplayers of our time but also one of the nicest guys to ever walk the earth. Happy 30th birthday, Brandon! We love ya!

In the words of the birthday boy, New W’s on da Way, and, as always, GO REDS!

“I’d play against these guys with one leg. We have to beat these guys. I hate the Cardinals. All they do is ***** and moan about everything, all of them, they’re little *******, all of ‘em.

“I really hate the Cardinals. Compared to the Cardinals, I love the Chicago Cubs. Let me make this clear: I hate the Cardinals.”

Doesn’t sound very nice to me, just sayin.

Clearly you’re not one of our dedicated readers – check out what he did for me and my family here:

He’s one of the kindest and most generous people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. Just because he’s not afraid to say what he’s thinking and enjoys rivalries that make the game of baseball everything that it is does not mean he’s a bad person – it means that he’s a dedicated player, a hard worker, and a great inspiration to his fans.

Okay, so He’s a great guy off the field and u got to meet him and all that stuff, that’s great, But If Albert Pujols who’s one of the kindest and most generous ppl I know about (even though I haven’t met him…yet.) said that he hated the reds, and they’re just a bunch of whiners who are just jealous of the Cardinals and the success that they have had (Which I think is true) Wouldn’t u just kinda forget about all the great stuff he’s done off the field and admitted that u don’t like him.

Brandon Phillips may be a kind and generous guy off the field, which is great, but as soon as he puts that Reds jersey on and goes out onto the field, I for the game at least forget about all that stuff and only remember what he said about the Cardinals

That’s why I don’t like him, and I probably never will.
