Wth is Bronson swinging at???
(Gotta critique something)
Did Arroyo ever pitch in the mid 90s when he was younger?
Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
Nice to have a game like this after our roadtrip
Rain reported to really be picking up at the stadium; seeing some lightning.
"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."
Not surprising, with the rain really picking up and starting to get lightning too. We'll see how things go here. If they do have to cancel it, the Reds have won, right?
Seems like a good time to call it a game lol
The cheers you just heard came from Bristol, CT. ESPN now gets to show the Yanks/Twins.
"In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"

In this case, are there any behind the scenes lobbying from the Reds and Giants to just call it?
No sense in finishing this one out.
Fun fact during the rain delay.
In terms of batting/fielding/base running WAR, Ryan Ludwick is tied with Tony Cingrani (which is also odd) and Devin Mesoraco for 8th place on the team. (0.1 WAR)
