It's Harang, Arroyo and . . .

In a most anticlimactic announcement of spring, Jerry Narron said that Aaron Harang will be the Opening Day starter. It was pretty clear that that would be the case when the Reds set up the spring rotation in early March.

Harang will become the first pitcher to start back-to-back openers for the Reds since Pete Harnisch in 2000 and 2001.

Harang isn't here in Clearwater But Narron said when he told him yesterday, "He was pretty excited -- for Aaron Harang."

As for the Reds of rotation, Narron said: "It's Harang and (Bronson) Arroyo . . . "

It has been Harang, Arroyo, Eric Milton and Kyle Lohse all spring. But it sounds like that could be tinkered with.

Have Milton be the fifth starter

Maybe the fifth starter in AAA. Castellini and Krivsky keeping mentioning bringing the best 25 north to Cincinnati, and it's quite evident that Milton is not worthy of a roster spot. Yea he makes big time money but really take a stand and show the fans you care about winning. Belisle and Livingston have been great this spring and they deserve a chance to shine at the big show.

I believe it was the Braves of the 50s that had a saying regarding their rotation -- "Spahn and Sain and pray for rain."

The Reds need to come up with one of their own, "Harang and Arroyo and pray for ______"

I'm lacking a good imaginative word here. an erupting volcano is the best I can do. We should be able to come up with better. Hopefully John can help us out he is a professional writer.
