These are the facts: Reds haven't won in st louis much in the past several years. Arroyo has struggled, while Garcia has excelled. Yes, we have injuries and are not at full strength, but they have theirs as well. It's time to put all that aside, GUT one out, and win the series in day two. I like Robinson getting the chance in LF - hopefully he can provide a spark that is much needed. If we want to be champions, this is the game we need to win - when the odds seem stacked against us. LETS GO REDS!
