    2.) Luis Rodrieguez up next and gets a base hit into left field. Bronson comments that Manny Ramirez would've gotten to that hit and thrown the runner out at first. 1 on, 1 out.

    3.) Jason Kubel hits a deep rocket over Griffey's head to the wall. Rodrieguez comes around to the 3rd. Marty rips on Felipe Lopez and Tony Womack for not cutting the throw off. I choose to blame Womack. Bronson comments that Nomar would've made the cut off. 1st and 2nd with 1 out.
    Thanks Caveat Emperor for the quips and chuckles!
    Although I am also quite sure that when Griff threw that in he said, WOW, that's no noodle arm Johnny Damon

    What are some links to the Reds game so I can get it on the internet radio feed? Thanks.

    Is Liriano afraid of mighty Tony Womack? I think so, walks him on 4 pitches.

    Liriano on the hill. Why can't Krivsky trade for guys like this?

    1.) Tony Womack steps into the batters box. RedsZone erupts into a chorus of boos. Womack takes a walk on 4 straight pitches. He displays anger while trotting up the first base line at the thought of his OBP rising slightly.

    1 on, 0 out.

    2.) Felipe Lopez with a line drive base hit. Somewhere, Dave Miley mutters about Aurillia not getting enough ABs. 1st and 2nd with 0 outs. Reds, shall we say, threatening...

    3.) Ken Griffey Jr. bounces to the shortstop, with the only play going to the 1st baseman to retire Jr. The runners advance. BadFundamentalness Factor: 3.

    4.) Edwin Encarnacion hits a rocket ground rule double to drive in the first 2 runs of the game for the Reds. 2 runs score for the good guys. Narron tells reporters that Louisville fans can look forward to lots of that from Edwin this year. 2-0 Reds.

    5.) Dunn grounds out to the first baseman, with the pitcher covering. Can't stress the importance of pitchers fielding practice often enough. Dunn robbed of a hit, the runner advances. The joy of making contact and moving the runner over. Scrappiness Factor: 4. 3rd with 2 out.

    6.) Rich Aurillia decides there's just too much fun happening in this inning, and kills the party with a groundout to 3rd. Inning over.

    Going to the 2nd, Reds 2, Twinks 1.

    No worries--we're still well within the 30-day return policy.

    One thing you will find about Arroyo and IMO it's quite reminiscent of Bret Saberhagen's mound demeanor. If they have men on they 'bring it.' It's almost like they are mad that they have 'men on.' I'm not comparing Arroyo's pitching to a Cy Young award winner, but you see some pitchers get rattled and you see guys make bad pitch selections under pressure. Arroyo gets finer tuned pitching from the stretch. He will change an arm angle on a curve and the hitter will have no idea what's coming. Arroyo could throw a strike from over his head, side arm and underhand if he wanted to.

    Bronson Arroyo takes the hill. Marc Lancaster takes the mic in the booth. Can life be any better?

    1.) Rob Bowen leads off with a strikeout. Lancaster comments that the injury to Wise opens the door to Quinten McCracken. Lancaster also says the 3 catchers situations doesn't make any sense and that a trade is going to be made in the very near future.

    2.) Jason Bartlet flies out to Kearns. To the delight of these ears, he says that he also expects a 2nd baseman to be moved, citing Tony Womack as the best option.

    Reds apparently signed Alex Sanchez today too. Joy.

    3.) Liriano strikes out as well. 2 punchouts for Arroyo, who goes back to the clubhouse to surf on SOSH and lament about his lack of Red Soxiness.

    Not much from Lancaster...Arroyo needs to learn that Reds pitchers are supposed to blow up in the 2nd inning so we can get a lot of good dirt.

    Coming to the bottom of the 2nd, Reds 2 - Twinks 1.

    3 Ks for the new reds pitcher... not bad.

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    On the plus side, it gives me someone to chant "STER-ROIDS" to on our own team.

    Liriano back on the mound. Reds looking to do some more damage, just because that's the only thing they do well, generally.

    1.) Austin Kearns works the count full, pimping is #P/PA stat, before gracefully exiting via the whiff. Maybe with those big ears, he'd be better off doing the Daredevil thing and closing his eyes to use the one sense God must've truly blessed him with.

    2.) Jason LaRue grounds out. Marty and Steve go off on the linguistics of spring training and encourage fans not to get caught up in spring training numbers. Especially those belonging to Tony Womack.

    3.) Bronson Arroyo with the stick. Marty acts as Arroyo's road manager and encourages Cincinnati local tavern owners to book Arroyo's act. Apparently he's never heard Bronson plaay. Bronson chops it to 3rd and is thrown out. He goes back to the dugout, obviously mad, stating that in Boston they never made him hit.

    After 2, Reds 2 - Twinks 1.
