Game Thread: Reds at Cardinals — 2008.04.28

Welcome back to St. Loo, Walt Jocketty. The new Reds GM returns to the scene of his greatest triumphs, and the Reds look to win the middle series on this 9-game road trip.

Tonight, of course, is game one of the series, and its very important for Bronson Arroyo to start pitching well if the Reds are going to have a decent team in 2008. Tonight is a good time for Arroyo to start the turnaround.

Discuss it here….

UPDATE: Welcome back to the majors, Bill Bray. So long, Java Man.

  1. I am starting to get the feeling that if we have the lead after the 7, then its lights out.

  2. Edwin is just one of those players that makes fans crazy. The guy will make some total goofball plays on the easy ones and then MAKES the impossible ones.

    It’s just Edwin being Edwin.

  3. It is unlike Freel to complain to the media. He’s gotta feel pretty bad about Hairston jumping that much ahead of him on the depth chart.

  4. I’m liking this…

    3/5th of the rotation is solid:
    Volquez 1.23 ERA, 1.23 WHIP
    Harang 2.76 ERA, 0.99 WHIP
    Cueto 4.05 ERA, 0.87 WHIP
    plus Arroyo is swimming back into shape?

    5 solid relievers:
    Cordero 1.64 ERA, 1.00 WHIP
    Lincoln 3.00 ERA, 1.00 WHIP
    Mercker 1.86 ERA, 1.03 WHIP
    Affeldt 1.54 ERA, 1.11 WHIP
    Burton 3.65 ERA, 1.30 WHIP (and lead team in K/9 with 18 K in 12.1 IP.
