Game 3: Cubs 2 – Reds 5

Apr
05

Cubs 1-2
Reds 2-1, win the series

POTG: SP Marquis von Jason (6 IP, 4 H, ER, 2B, K)
Runner Up: 3B A Ram (3 H, RBI, 2B), 2B D Rosa (2 H, HR, R, RBI), SS C Turis (that doesn’t work at all; 2 H)

This got so terrible, it almost killed this gimmick three games in. That seventh inning was brought in from last year just to remind us how little has actually been accomplished. And the two guys who are supposedly supposed to be solid in the bullpen were anything but (not that they got much help.)

This baserunning goofiness needs to stop already.

At least Marquis was quality (though perhaps some more Ks will help) and Guzman was good for the one batter he faced. And DeRosa and A-Ram are hitting to make up for the guys who aren’t.

Any situation where Ronny Cedeno is pinch hitting with runners out is a bad situation for us all.

Todd Grisham (and Bruno, who may or may not exist) as soccer announcers blows my mind into teeny tiny pieces.

Will the last 15 minutes of the game be referred to as the maiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin event? Will someone will provide him with roster sheets, so he’s not just talking about “that guy on the Crew?” What does this all have to do with John Cena and Vince McMahon?!?!?!?!?!

(Does this mean the ECW rumor is *gasp* wrong?)

(why doesn’t the MLS own MLS.com?)

With Coach doing CSTV and Todd on MLS, Cole theoretically running .com, and JR saucily selling sauce, I guess the thing to do if you’re an announcer is to get a sidejob. Which doesn’t say much for WWE, but eh. Obviously, Steve Romero’s got a future in bullfighting – if anyone knows bull, it’s Romero. Styles has his side job hawking coins, so he’s good. I think I’d like to see Josh call a wrestling match, but that’s just crazy talk.
