Arroyo concert canceled

Baseball comes first for Bronson Arroyo.

From the Reds:

CINCINNATI, Ohio (June 20, 2007) – The second annual Perfect Pitch concert, scheduled for Sunday, July 1 at the Madison Theater in Covington, Kentucky, has been canceled.

Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo, the featured performer at the concert, said, “The timing isn’t good right now. My body is a little banged up, and I’m trying to help us win baseball games.”

Arroyo is slated to perform at Kahn’s Redsfest, presented by Great American Insurance, benefiting the Reds Community Fund. The event returns to the Duke Energy Center downtown December 7-8.

Fans who purchased tickets to the Perfect Pitch concert will receive a full refund and 2 tickets to a 2007 Reds home game.

Good call, Bronson.

Very good call.

However, maybe Arroyo should do a LIVE AID show to collect donations towards funding a REAL BULLPEN?

Back to reality today!

Its time to rant and rave: I have some advice for the key people in the Reds' organization: First to the owner, DO NOT ACCEPT EVERYTHING YOUR GM TELLS YOU. Get some outside advice from a well regarded baseball consultant to sanity check what your GM is feeding you. Perhaps then you won't have trades and pick ups like Coutlangus and Salmon , Majewski, Bray, etc. Second Mr. GM, do not micro manage the teams by sending down players like Livingston that have a good game. Leave it to your coach to make those decisions. Find a place for Freel and then trade him. He's a good player, but Hopper has a awesome defense that has saved us a lot of runs from scoring. Finally, to the coach, NEVER BRING IN COFFEY, SALMON OR COUTLANGUS AGAIN! They maybe nice guys, but I'm afraid they will always be minor league stars and major league flops.

If Bronson restores his pitching ... Can we win with that HORRIBLE bullpen????????????

We would need Santana, Peavy, Verlander, Beckett, and Homer in the rotation in order to overcome our horrible bullpen and manager.

Come on Castellini! It's just like produce. If it's stale get rid of it and bring up something fresh!
