Big start for Arroyo. He's facing Ian Snell (1-0, 3.75 ERA).

No rain? how about snow?

Baker has made some very strange moves during the games, but I would much rather see that than the ridiculous constant go by the book crap from the "baseball guy", Dave Miley and Bob Baffoon.

Up until last night, the team seemed like it had a lot more enthusiasm and actual desire to win than in recent years past.

My major beef about Dusty so far is the lineup for the Phillies finale. I know that players need an occasional day off, but where does it say that you rest everybody at once and play all of the scrubs at the same time? Seems all of the Reds recent managers liked to do that. What is the point? Not going to win many games with that lineup.

I agree. I think he has to prove that he is a #2 starter.

I predicted Arroyo would have a good outing last time before realizing it was a day game and he has just been flat out awful in day games last year and so far this year (1-7). So I guess I'll go out on that limb again and say I expect Arroyo to bounce back and have an excellent game.
