Aaron Harang has looked good, the young guys — Johnny Cueto and Edinson Volquez — have been outstanding, and even Josh Fogg has had a good start. Now it’s time for Bronson Arroyo to dazzle us with one of his superb pitching outings.
He’ll be facing the Pittsburgh Pirates — the Sluggin’ Buccos, as someone called them in the game thread last night — and their righthander Ian Snell.
As we said yesterday, if the Reds expect to be a good team this year, these are the series they have to win. That means the good guys need to win today and tomorrow.
It starts today! Discuss it here….
