Game Thread: Reds at Marlins — 2008.06.07

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!!!

  1. I think he sat too long, he needs regular work or something. I mean you know the Reds hitters are totally down

  2. It really sucks, but it had to happen eventually. I believe that’s the Reds’ first lost this year when leading after 8 innings.

  3. Yeah he has been lights out for the most part, but that is such a crappy way to lose.

  4. At least they didn’t just die with their hitting and showed they can score runs on the road.

  5. Yeah, it’s just 1 game, but this highlights why a small mkt team can’t give 46MM to a 65 inning closer.

  6. you gotta give the closer innings to work in… u gotta be ahead to use him.
    the reds just dont do that enough

  7. I disagree, there are times where it is a good idea to use your “closer” in a tie game, which Dusty would never do.

    There have been times this season I would have loved to see Cordero come into a game and another member of the bullpen blew the tie game.

  8. I wonder what Cody Ross’s BA is against the Reds? He hasn’t had that good of a season thus far, but he’d be an allstar if he could play against the Reds a couple of times a week.
