Great outing last night. Let’s hope that the Reds can follow that up with another strong game to take this series against Florida.
Bronson Arroyo takes the hill for the good guys, and Arroyo is certainly due for a good outing. He’ll be facing Scott Olsen for the Fish, who’s not a bad pitcher, but is a bit of a nutcase, with a long history of disciplinary problems legal issues. I’d really like to see the Reds pound him into submission tonight.
I won’t be able to watch the game, in all likelihood; I will be at my daughter’s dance recital (after missing last week’s game-winning HR by Jay Bruce because I was at her gymnastics recital). Last year, I missed Homer Bailey’s first start because of a dance recital. I’m a good father.
I’m going to go warm up the TiVo. Discuss the game here…and I will be reading the comments on my BlackBerry, so keep me updated!!!
