    Orioles @ Reds (4/18 - 4/20)

    Reds need a bounce back series after dropping three to the Brewers.

    Will Arroyo pitch game 1 of a series again?

    The injuries to Finny and Davis might push that out a few more.

    Well the guy he's facing has a higher ERA so we got that going for us.

    It is interesting to think about how people view the young pitchers vs. Arroyo. If the youngsters get lit up and can't make it for more than three Innings, that is a learning curve. If Arroyo gets lit up, get him out of here. Understandable, but is there a lack of patience on Arroyo?

    Probably not. Stevie Wonder has had a lot of hits over his career.

    Stevie could probably last about as long out on the bump as our current rotation guys have been lasting. I wonder if Wonder can throw the slider?

    I think that is a "Superstition".
