Wow, that was a fun game last night, wasn’t it?

Tonight, Bronson Arroyo takes the hill, so there’s some chance that tonight will be a good one, as well. Opposing him for the Cards is Braden Looper, who provided me with one of my favorite moments at Great American Ballpark.

It will be interesting to see Looper pitch as a starter; he has certainly enjoyed some success in four starts this season thus far.

The game starts at 8:10 Eastern, so everyone needs to be here to discuss what we hope is another win against the hated Cardinals.

Blame Chad for creating this mess.

  1. Nice hit by Dunn to lead off the ninth, but where has his power gone? What happened to the days when he’d crush balls every other night or so?

    I think Brook Jacoby and all the Marty-like sniping at him over the strikeouts has screwed him up bad. He can’t just be Dunn now.

  2. Is this Griffey guy any good?

  3. Will the aliens that abducted the real EE please return him?

  4. Dunn hit that ball to the warning track the opposite field – I thought he drilled it pretty good.

  5. EE is clueless.

  6. He did drill it pretty good…but how many hard hit balls have we seen from him in the last two weeks? I can’t remember any.

  7. The comeback is on.

  8. Well that might have been the game winner if not for Sarloos.

  9. He hit another double the opposite way a couple days ago, too. Dunn’s never been one for loud outs. If he’s slumping, it’s pretty much strikeouts.

  10. Haha. Love to see Eckstein boof one. I really hate that guy.

  11. David Ross at the plate as the tying run?

    That’s my worst nightmare.

  12. I love it when Eckstein screws up. E6.

  13. Come, Latin PHing Machine!!!

  14. Aaaah, it’s the LLM. Much better, I think.

  15. LLM represents the tying run…

  16. Well, that sucks.

  17. Eddie doesn’t even remember this.

  18. What’s the latest medical report on Bray?

  19. I remember that Eddie, Jim….what happened to him? He was Mr. Clutch last year.

  20. Games like this are so frustrating. I can’t imagine how Arroyo feels.

  21. Reds also have Jared “My Real Name Is Levi” Burton on a rehab assignment, which can last another week-plus.

  22. He left Earth in one of these.

  23. I’m sad about Edwin. He always looks so pitiful.
