    I said when I posted about him after 2 starts that I loved Arroyo, but he needed to retire. He has improved since his 1st 2 starts, but he's still not a guy that belongs in the rotation. He simply can't give you enough innings, and his ERA certainly isn't anything to brag about. The Reds just happen to score a lot of runs when he pitches.

    Yeah it was. Dang. A little more to the right and we actually might have had a Red Tundra winner.

    I was guessing that it was about 450 ft. To bad that was the last of the offensive output.

    I thought he pitched fine last night. Wood was responsible for 2 of those runs because he doesn't know how to throw a strike.

    Just for fun...Duvall, Schebler, and Votto are on pace to combine for 156 HRs and 374 RBI.

    I feel like that every outing and then he ends up with 2 or 3 runs scored each time. He's given up a run in every outing but one.

    Gotta think Davis is pitching for his rotation spot tonight.

    He struggled to get there, but 5 scoreless is a step in the right direction for Rookie.

    Reed needs to tighten up his mechanics. He is so erratic with his motion it's no wonder he has control issues.

    Just not a smooth delivery at all. Very ugly to look at.

    Nice to see the bats stayed alive after their 3-Run shot, unlike last night.

    Duvall seems to be swinging the bat extremely well.

    Reds option Cody Reed, recall Austin Brice....

    Not sure why you do this unless you plan on stretching him out to start.
