Rock Solid Recrap: Jonathan Sanchez Remains Worse Than Everybody

Reds 7, Rockies 2 (boxscore)

Ready for the world's fastest Recrap?

Here goes.

Jonathan Sanchez's Line: 4 1/3 IP, 6 ER, 8 H, 2 BB, 3 K, 1 HR, 84 pitches (48 strikes)

For a split second you had to be amazed Dan O'Dowd found a taker for Jeremy Guthrie that was willing to give up a living being in return (not to mention one that had thrown a no-hitter in MLB). And then we came to the realization that the return was Jonathan Sanchez (the only pitcher in baseball having a worse year than Guthrie).

Surprise! The change of scenery hasn't helped Sanchez one bit so far, and all we can do is sarcastically joke that we miss Guthrie.

Fun times.

Highlight of the Afternoon: The Rockies two runs came on one 1st inning swing. They then curled up and were overpowered for the remaining eight frames, but here's your highlight.

Bonus Highlight: Watch CarGo's diving grab
