Cincinnati Reds' Cuban Missile Launches

Last night marked the debut of the Cincinnati Reds hot prospect Aroldis Chapman. He's the Cuban defector who can throw the ball more than a hundred miles an hour. He did not disappoint. He struck out the first Milwaukee Brewers' batter with a nasty slider that would require a door to hit. Against Craig Counsel, he threw a ball clocked at 102 mph. Counsel and the next batter grounded meekly out. Wow. I don't ever remember seeing a Cincinnati Reds pitcher throw over a hundred a miles an hour.

What about the game? The Reds won, 8-4. The St. Louis Cardinals aka "The Little Bitches" lost. The Reds now lead the Little Bitches by seven games. Here's the game story with video.
