Tuesday News and Notes

* The Cincinnati Cyclones have brought their series to 2-3 after winning back to back games in Reading. The Cyclone dropped their first 3 games of the series and on the brink of elimination have fought back (literally.) There was a brawl in game 5 that resulted in two Reading players being suspended along with Cyclones Ryan Del Monte. They will serve their suspensions tonight in game 6 at US Bank Arena.

* The Reds have won 10 of their last 14 and are currently sitting 3 games behind St. Louis for the Division lead. At 17-15, I think this team can really make a push to stay competitive throughout the season. Especially if they get some good pitching.

* Jermaine Gresham jersey's are now available for purchase in the Bengals pro-shop. Gresham will wear number 84, which was recently made famous by TJ Houshmanzadeh. By putting on this number Gresham will not argue every play that he doesn't catch a ball as pass interference, and while to each referee that he is being held.

* Marvin Lewis is in the last year of his contract. Local sports talking heads have posed the question, should the Bengals re-sign him? My answer........YES! Seriously is this even a question? Look at what he has accomplished as head coach for the Bengals. Two division titles in the past 7 years. Sure only two winning seasons in that span but his only major blemish is 4-11 in 2008. Keep him, this whole thing could blow up under the wrong person.
