Arroyo 1

Provided Edmonds is fairly well healed (and Bruce for that matter), that looks like it could be pretty good defensive OF.

If Edmonds and Bruce are healthy I'm thinking we could see this lineup alot more, assuming Gomes doesnt got hot.

At ;east Votto will score 100. I don't know what it is but it always looked so much cooler when a Reds player had 100 runs scored or 100 RBI's...on the stat sheet. Besides the obvious...as a kid...it always looked cool to see that.

My oldest daughter and I just got back from the game. What a pleasure that was. Great outing by Bronson, solid hitting, solid relief work, got to see Yonder play in the field, saw them post the score to the Cards loss (and a Reds fan nearby pointed out that they lost on a 3 run dinger by Ludwick of all people...LOL). Just a great night at the ballpark (wish it was Great American...but I'll take what I can get these days *grin*). Btw...I also called the shot of Stubbs. I told my daughter to watch Drew light up this clown on the mound. BOOM. I love it. I also loved all the cheering for Bruce as usual. He's got such a big group of fans here at MM. Just nice to see.

So the magic number is 8 now?

janish gets that :p:

I agree...and it was the other thing I called at the game. Once we got the lead to 8-1 I said I wish Dusty'd put Janish in there at short. Gets Ocab rest and keeps Paul fresh too. Of course he did it one inning late...and then subs him for Rolen at third instead. Frustrating. My one complaint of the game.

Okay, 2 complaints...the people sitting in front of us kept putting their kid on their shoulders so he could see....blocking everybody else's view. :rolleyes:

On Saturday, I sat next to a couple that included a woman from Cincinnati and there was a guy 2 rows behind me cheering for the Reds. Since I had my iPod Touch and ballpark wifi, I got to tell the guy behind me about the Cardinals losing thanks to Ludwick's 3-run blast. :thumbup:
