    You have to love this time of year.

    Jul 23, 2011, 2:07 AM EDT

    Nyjer Morgan

    Tired of getting the business from the Giants fans in center field on Friday night, Nyjer Morgan definitely made some sort of gesture following his catch in the seventh inning.  And that gesture, for all of the world, looked like he was flipping the fans the bird. The pictures, though, suggest otherwise.  He certainly had…

    Cincinnati Reds v St. Louis Cardinals

    The Reds are missing more than Scott Rolen tonight. According to Hal McCoy of the Dayton Daily News, Jay Bruce was scratched from tonight’s lineup against the Braves due to dizziness.
