What with the holiday, and attendant family obligations, I watched yesterday’s Cubs/Reds game on a tiny screen on my computer when I could sneak a peak. I didn’t see every pitch, but I saw enough to get the lay of the game, and to see Reds hitters take advantage of what looked like softening stuff from Carlos Villanueva once they’d seen him two or three times already that day.
But, now that I was able to look at the replay of the game on a larger, higher-definition screen, and I can see that I was dead wrong. There is a pretty clear explanation for Villanueva’s troubles yesterday, and I’m sorry that I have to reveal such a frightful truth …
Carlos, NOOOO!!! Bring it back. I will send you more mustache wax if you need it.
