Reds Give Coco a Feeling of Deju Vu...

It's no secret that I'm a huge Reds fan like a large number of folks here in Darke County. We are in the midst of what is shaping up to be a special season. A winning team despite several flaws, production when it's most needed from guys who have been largely unproductive, and consistent outstanding pitching have defined the season thus far. For a franchise who always seemed to have either hitting or pitching and rarely both in the last decade or more, this year's club is doing what's important: winning, even without the best hitter in MLB in their lineup.

Thus, I'm going to share what makes me smile every time I see it: a couple of screen grabs I took of the replay from Tuesday night that succinctly captures the moment when Drew Stubbs took former Red Francisco Cordero deep to take the lead in the ninth (Cordero, you'll remember, was a primary source of anxiety and frustration in his tenure as Reds closer). Why Deja Vu? Stubbs beat Cordero again in the ninth last night with a two run double to take the lead for the last time.

Go Reds!
