Redlegs Steal A Win, And That's News...

What do you think of the new "pitching and defense first" Redlegs now? Pitching and defense kept the Reds in the game, and finally someone (Ramon Hernandez) came through with the big hit to win it. It's way too early for me to get this excited, but the Reds have not won games in this fashion in the past. In the last several years a ground ball would have been booted or a fly ball would have fell in that would have led to a big inning for the Astros. But the Reds were airtight in Houston Friday night. That's good to see from where I sit. It was also good to see an angry Dusty Baker yank Cueto in the 5th inning, although I felt like Johnny was squeezed by the umpire on one, if not two pitches in the bases loaded walk to Berkman. Now let's see what Harang can do Saturday night. The big man is looking for his third stellar outing in a row. A bounce back season by Harang would be huge for this team. It's too early to speculate on this too, but: Is it possible that an organization that has preached for years about "doing the little things right" just might be doing the little things right in 2009?
