    I know it's not their style, but it would be interesting to see Wily Mo hit behind a good OBP/speed guy in order to limit the number of breaking pitches he'll see. Something tells me Youkilis isn't going to be running much though.
    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.

    That's sux. I have my DVR set to record and was planning on watching it tonight. I guess I will just see an hour of it. You know they will draw that news conference out for a while and then have an hour of analysis.

    Someone needs to inform the announcers that the Great American Ballpark is not a extreme hitters park like they are making it out to be.

    Reds go out in order in the first. Ending with an EdE popup.

    We have a hard enough time reminding people *here* of that. Our pitching just blows, pure and simple.

    By the end of it, Dan O'Brien was actually right about the types of pitchers we need (groundball types)- he just didn't sign any of them.

    They don't even have a good OBP/speed, seriously. Crisp is their only speed guy, and his OBP isn't terrible, but I wouldn't call it good, at least not yet. The real lineup without Bard goes Lowell, Pena, Youkilis, Gonzalez. Should be a lot of Ks there.

    I think the ballpark has a little to do with our pitchers sucking as well. For one a Pitcher here can pitch 6 AWESOME innings then a few walks and a HUGE HR lol

    But i agree the pitchers need to adapt and the'll be ok.

    Re: 3/30 Game Thread: Reds at Red Sox

    Arroyo faces the Sox lineup in the bottom of the first.

    Crisp. Smacks one into right for a base hit.

    Loretta. Bronson gets ahead 0-2, then misses by a hair with the next one. Misses again. ARROYO MAKES A WILD PICKOFF THROW AND CRISP GOES TO THIRD! Just terrible. High popup to first, and Hatteberg grabs it in foul ground. One out.

    Nixon. Check swing, ball one. Grounder foul. Ball two. Foul fly to left, 2-2. GOOD FASTBALL UP GETS THE STRIKEOUT!

    ManRam. Strike called. Ball one. Foul out of play, 1-2. STRIKE THREE CALLED ON THE INSIDE EDGE!

    Wow, nice recovery by Arroyo. Very impressive.

    0-0 after 1.
