    First in forward rolls. That is almost enough to make the world series.

  2. Nice info Lori, great as always, I’ll have to read more of it when I’m awake tomorrow. While I do not watch sports much anymore, I keep hearing that the Reds need more offense. While the pitching numbers look well, seeing that they’re G-String in hitting and other rankings in the 20’s, in terms of stealing bases and actually getting on base, tells me they have some work to do during the break.
