    Is Bronson actually supposed to pitch this thursday against the Red Sox, or do you think they will push him to friday because of the schedule?

    Liriano is nasty, this might not be pretty.

    As far as I know, he'll pitch on schedule with the rotation....of course, that is subject to change.

    They have told him that he is on the board for Thurs. It really will depend on his pitch count today as to a rotation change. He doesn't have the type of arm that needs 'rest' or doesn't throw well if he skips a start or is moved up a day, etc. during the season. He just doesn't like being 'out of routine' as most players will attest too as well, but he's a real gamer and it's all about the good of the team. I expect more than 5 out of him. He'll try and be stingy with his pitches and if Narron doesn't have a quick hook, Arroyo works well when he's cruising and it should be evident to everyone at that point. Being that Arroyo knows LaRue and he also has prior experience with today's hitters as the Red Sox play the Twins quite a bit during ST as a 'natural' rival, this will be a really good outing for LaRue to get a 'feel' for how Bronson likes to throw. Hopefully he can 'get in his head' like Jason Varitek was able to do.
    Regarding Arroyo throwing against his old team, that kind of stuff doesn't phase him. You will see a complete separation of entities when he takes the mound. Bottom line, it's war between the lines. Abad is one of his better friends, but it didn't mean he was going to serve him up some meat last Tues. just so Andy could have better leverage at making the team
    Just like if you hear about him out having dinner with a friend while he is in town playing the Reds. Bronson will still give him a fast up and in the next day if he has too! He's a Red now. And give him time, he will be a Red through-and-through and again, it will always be about the good of the team.

    He's on a pitch count though - 50 max

    What's the latest on whether or not he'll win the 5th spot in the rotation?

    Per the usual, AD is low in the lineup.

    The King of Cornrows goes for the Reds in the Top of the 1st.

    1.) Tyner leads things off, and Bronson starts his Reds career with a strike. Woo Hoo. Tyner pops up to Felipe Lopez. Bronson comments that in Boston, that would've been a strikeout.

    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.

    4.) Morneau continues the hit parade, knocking a base hit. A run scores to make the score Twinkies 1, Reds 0. Bronson mutters something about Sam Adams and Marathons. 1st and 3rd with 1 out.

    5.) Glenn Williams strikes out and will, no doubt, be teased mercilessly for not getting a base hit off Bronson Arroyo despite being a lefty (that's 5 consecutive lefties, for those of you counting at home). 1st and 3rd with 2 outs.

    6.) Rob Brown pops out to Encarnacion to end the inning. Bronson trots eagerly back to the dugout to listen to the Dropkick Murphys on his iPod and ignore his new teammates.

    After .5, Twinks 1 Reds 0.
