Bronson Arroyo: "We can't afford this," said Arroyo. "The Cardinals pulled out two good ones the last two days. We have to eliminate some mistakes we're making on the mound and push some runs across the plate."
The Reds (aside from Arroyo and Hatteberg) don't like hearing "must win". They only like "do the best you can, see you tommorow." Sorry fellas, this is the FINALS of the game, there are must win games, and despite your offseason fishing prowess, you, as a professional, will be measured by how you perform in them.
Win. These are the days of winners and losers. No alternatives.
On another note, after the last five years, it's nice to even have the option!
