The Cincinnati Reds are sick

No, that’s not some figure of speech. It’s a literal description:

There was a big pot of chicken soup in the dining area of the Cincinnati Reds’ clubhouse on Wednesday. Several players were in the trainer’s room getting intravenous fluids.

A day after a stomach virus went through the team, the Reds were starting to feel better.

The Reds were still missing shortstop Zack Cozart and had to change their pitching plans for the second game of a series against the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday. Mat Latos started in place of Mike Leake, who was weak after not eating for a day. Cozart was out for the second straight game.

On the bright side, after today, I bet the Reds are no longer 11th in the NL in runs.

    I guess that’s one way to score the runs!

        That’s from a totally different kind of virus.

    And remember folks, Craig will be here all week, two shows a day, new material each show.

      We’ll see whether it’s new material.

      I imagine Dusty with a big Chef hat on.. Tenderizing those pitcher wings, err chicken wings.

    I’m confused, this is Dusty Baker’s fault too, isn’t it?

    • Utley's Hair - Jun 13, 2012 at 6:46 PM

      Of course it is. The virus is probably E coli picked up in a trip into that pen of bulls of his. Then he spread it around.

        Dang you Dusty Baker! Dang you to heck!

      • Utley's Hair - Jun 13, 2012 at 8:06 PM

        I shoulda known you’d show up, since there is a Bieber-Putz post over yonder.
