3 Ks for Arroyo
Molina flies to center and that's two out.
Another 3 up, 3 down. Excellent!
As long as Bronson can avoid getting in a bad situation against Beltran or Holliday, specifically Holliday, I think he'll be dealing tonight.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
Still early, but I'm liking the feel of this so far. Like last night-- some decent offense from our guys, combined with nice pitching and some helpful defensive plays.
Bronson is throwing more slow stuff than ever. Seems to be using the fastball much more infrequently lately. And it's working well.
Cardinals have 4 hitters in the top 16 in batting average in the NL (Molina, Carpenter, Craig, Beltran).
Cozart is hit by a pitch. Eee.
