    Were is the love for Arroyo after today?

    I got on the zone late and to my dismay, there was very little talk about Arroyo's outing today against the little bears. What's up with that?
    6 and 2/3 innings, 3 earned runs, NO WALKS, 7 K's, solo ding dong, drew a walk, and a sacrifice. Hell, he even mowed the field before the game. Not a bad start. The trade is looking better and better.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Check the game thread. It's oozing love for Bronson.

    Two games into the season, getting excited about BA is the same as getting down on Dunn for his performance in game one.

    BTW, your tag line is probably one of the more discusting things to have been posted on this board.

    Its just one start, one game. It wasnt the most impressive game either. I was there. It wasnt bad by any means, but he gave up two home runs. He served up an absolute bomb to Derrek Lee after Ross dropped the popup (why the heck was Ross even playing?). I like that he struck out 7 guys and walked none. I dont like that after getting ahead of Lee and almost getting him out, that he got hammered for a 2 run home run to let them right back into the game.

    His breaking stuff was working like a charm against the Cubs. He had them diving at low breaking balls all day. He got into trouble when he tried to sneak a chest-high 91-mph fastball by Derrek Lee -- not a smart move.

    If he sticks to the breaking stuff and keeps his high fastballs up out of the zone, he'll do well.

    He was probably feeling a little bit let down for a couple minutes, after thinking he'd already gotten Lee out on that AB. I know I wasn't too happy at the time.

    Bronson was vg today and I truly feel he will be an asset to the Reds. But that stool line in your sig, how old are you again ?

    I couldn't decided if Bronson isn't afraid to pitch inside or he just didn't have good command. Either way, it was nice to see some of the Scrubs bailing out of the box.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    i could be wrong, but i seem to remember he was not afraid to pitch inside - which really is what this team needs.
    sometimes, it seems we have too many nice guys who are afraid to let batters know they do not appreciate the crowded plate.

    He looked just fine to me. Had a nasty breaking ball. He made two bad pitches and got burned on both of them. If Ross hadn't of dropped that ball it would have been an even better outing. Actually I thought they should have left him in to at least one more batter. He got the first two out in the 7th and then the 8 hitter dunked one down the left field line. I thought he still had his good stuff. I think he will be a good solid starter this season and may turn out to be the number one starter before it's all over with.

    He looked fine to me also, I don't remember the last time the Reds have had a pitcher with that kind of breaking stuff, and the ability to throw it from all different angles and at all different speeds. It was nice to see. He will give up the occasional homerun, so I am not sweating those two. Ross' drop was unbelieveable. The HR afterwards, apparently preordained.

    The homers he gave up were both to very good hitters. Ramirez owns GAB.

    That last ST start, and yesterday could be an indicator of better K numbers this season, though.

    Of course, it could also mean nothing, but I'm encouraged.
