Pitching wise, the pen is in rough shape. Broxton and Chapman both threw a lot of pitches. Marshall should be available.
I'm going out on a limb predicting big games for Drew Stubbs and Bronson Arroyo with the Reds coming home 2-0.
I kind of disagree about the bullpen.
When you consider the circumstances last night, it's amazing the Reds have Hoover, Simon, and Arredondo completely fresh. Marshall didn't work that hard either.
Brox threw a bunch of pitches, but he can throw to a couple of batters tonight.
Only issue I see is Lecure (likely out) and Chapman who threw 28 pitches. And I'd guess Aroldis can still work an inning if necessary although hopefully they'll win without need for him.
As for Frazier, tonight would be a good night with Arroyo, a fly ball pitcher, going. Rolen's defense might not be missed.
Still, like Rolen at SF, he knows how to hit in the big stadium. I'm guessing Scott plays again.
