    The Reds throw a change up at Atlanta

    Per Marc


    Color me confused

    The Reds are now saying Kyle Lohse will start Sunday (against Smoltz) and Bronson Arroyo will get the ball Saturday. That means Arroyo will be going on short rest after throwing 109 pitches Tuesday.

    Guess we'll have to wait a couple more hours to find out the reasoning behind this one, but I am curious...

    Narron really wants Bronson to have a dead arm come September.

    Really makes no sense. I guess it is just a "baseball decision".

    Yikes. I'll be at the game on Saturday. I don't want to see Bronson get shelled after short rest. Narron must not want Arroyo to be of any use to the team down the stretch.

    Sounds more like the Reds are throwing in the towel against Smoltz.

    The only thing I could think of would be Lohse being used while he was with Minnesota and staying on that schedule, but that would put him at close to a week away from being with Minnesota so this doesn't make any sense to me either.

    Either that or the fact that Arroyo has a concert scheduled for Sunday night at the Southgate House. Hmmm.

    Makes all the routine posts.

    The only reason I can think of is this means Arroyo will pitch in the Cardinal series, instead of Lohse.

    My thinking exactly. I'm actually happy for this move for selfish reasons. I have relatives going to that game, and Arroyo with a dead arm is better than Louse.

    fielder's choice (right above me) might've hit on the reason. They probably don't want to trot Louse out there during their big 1/2 price promotion.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
