    Looking forward to this. What's the length of the AFL season?

    31 regular season games. From October 8-November 14. Most games are afternoon games, though there are a few night games. There is also the Rising Stars game (basically an all-star game that they show on MLB Network).

    Rodriguez went 3-5 with a walk, 3 runs, double and 2 RBI. His two outs were line out and a strikeout.

    Tucker Barnhart went 0-5.

    Drew Hayes threw a perfect inning with 2 strikeouts.

    When I was a kid, it somehow got stuck in my mind that a perfect inning meant getting three outs on three pitches. One day my older brother mentioned that the Reds' pitcher had just pitched a perfect inning. I vehemently disagreed and offered up my understanding of what a perfect inning was. He laughed at my ignorance. And so we went to my dad to settle the dispute. He agreed with my older brother and kinda chuckled. My life has spiraled sadly downhill ever since.

    Lorenzen is in the AFL? Seems like he's being rushed.

    Why did Lorenzen pitch 2 innings?

    Guys are there to learn and play. Not so much to win, though you would like to do that as well. He probably had a general pitch count that was the plan for him to throw, so he threw roughly that many pitches to get in his work.

    I find it hard to believe he was not well over his pitch count giving up 7 runs.

    They aren't letting guys go over their pitch count, much less well over it.

    On top of that, not that another teams manager/coach would allow it, but the pitching coach on his team is a Reds employee. He didn't go over what they had planned for him on that day.

    The rumor is that the Reds are trying to earn brownie points with his agent so they'll have a better chance of signing Choo.

    Looks like he had 45 pitches. Are they considering making him a starter? I am ignorant to the relief pitcher pitch counts, but that seems kind of high.

    According to the box score he had 20 strikes in 45 pitches - ouch. Hopefully that is just first game jitters or something.

    Chad 'Desert Shark' Rogers with a nice two innings on Wednesday. Economical - 24 pitches. Threw strikes - 16 of them. Nice to see.

    Y-Rod homers. He could be the toolsy type who comes fast when the light clicks on. Could he be an option in CF if Hamilton still struggles to get on base? I'd prefer an established player to either of them, just wondering if his CF days are long gone?
