Comedy Central Report, 7/14

Borrowing from the media’s name for the National League Central, the Comedy Central Report is a daily feature which recaps all the previous day’s games in which a central team played. Keep track of all six teams vying for the most mediocre division title in baseball.

Reds fall to Mets, 3-2

Recap: This was the only game played in the National League yesterday. With all eyes upon them, it was Cinncinati's chance to build off their 5-1 record under Pete Mackanin and to represent the rest of the division, to tell the National League,"We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight!" Naturally, Bronson Arroyo began by giving up back-to-back homeruns to lead off the game. Although the Reds would tie the game a few innings later, Lastings Milledge would score the go-ahead run in the 5th off a single from Ruben Gotay that a diving Ryan Freel could not come up with.

All You Need to Know: The Mets have released 48 year old Julio Franco. The entire baseball world sheds a tear. It is probable, however, that another team will sign his wise and crafty bat, along with his phenomenal clubhouse presence. Just hopefully not the Pirates.

The bigger news coming from yesterday is that mainstream sports returned after the worst couple days of the entire year. I fear even I am being worn down by the constant baseball news, though, and anticipate the coming Steelers training camp as I'm sure the majority of Pittsburghers are as well. Start to look for a bit of a shift around here, as we begin to churn out more Steelers-centric news and features, although I wouldn't expect a dropoff from the regular Pirates posts either. What does this mean? Hopefully more posts, as the emergence of a second sport to write about will grant us more content. But we appreciate everyone sticking with us as we struggled to find important or humourous topics to discuss this past week. An entire article devoted to Matt Capps? Sadly, we went there.
