I can’t help but think of the chant my youth baseball kids repeated over, and over, and over, and over this past season as the Reds and Cardinals set to begin game 3 of this 4 game set…
“I’m fired up, you’re fired up!
I’m fired up, you’re fired up!
I can’t hear you!
I think I heard that so many times I’d go to sleep hearing it echo in my ears and dreams. But I think these last two games fit that chant to a tee. If you aren’t fired up for the Reds right now then you don’t have a pulse. These last two games have been exciting baseball and have us Reds fans believing yet again that this club can make some noise in September and October. It now falls on to you, Bronson Arroyo. The Cardinals kicked you around last time to the tune of 7 runs in 3.2 innings pitched. We need better from you tonight. I’ll honestly take the 2 runs in 6 and 2 runs in 7 innings performances you turned in earlier this season against the Cardinals and trust the offense to score more than that. Just keep us in the game, good Bronson, and let the offense take care of the rest!
Discuss the game here and GO REDS!
A simple Reds fan from a simple town. I have been a Reds fan all my life. The 1990 team was crowned Champions during my prime youth years and I grew up idolizing Chris Sabo all the way down to the flat top hair style and the #17. I have passed that love of the Reds down to my three boys who love the game and the Reds just as much as I do! Follow me on twitter @CoachWilson17
