Reds win 14 of 17 and own the second best record in baseball.
Unfortunately, division rival Cardinals have been playing just as well, so Cincinnati remains in second place...
I feel your pain, Chewey, and am rooting hard for the Reds or Pirates to beat out the Cardinals this year. Being a Mets fan I felt the pain of those early 80's pennant races where St. Louis always eemed to edge out the Mets and I'm not even going to talk about the 06' curveball from Adam Wainwright. It's a double burn that Carlos Beltran, who looked at said curveball, is now having a great season for the Cardinals!

The Yankees have granted Chien-Ming Wang his release after the right-hander exercised an opt-out clause in his minor-league contract, the team announced. Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that the sinkerballer will sign with the Blue Jays and join their rotation next week.
Wang, 33, signed with New York at the end of spring training. He went 4-4 with a 2.33 ERA and 58 percent ground-ball rate in 58 innings across eight Triple-A starts before opting out. The Yankees reportedly wanted him to focus on his offspeed pitches since his trademark sinker now sits more 88-90 mph rather than 93-95.
Pete, your thoughts on the pier six brawl from a week or so ago?
I was glad to see Greinke stand up for the team...although I don't like the whole bean ball stuff. Way to much bad can happen when you throw at guys and it usually never ends well for the guy who made the first "bad pitch".
