EdE bobbles the grounder to him but recovers and tags third base for the 3rd out.
That extension for BA is looking good, huh.
Gotta go for awhile. Anyone else want to pick up the PBP?
Just got in to see the Nats hung a four spot on Bronson in the first. Ugh. Felipe Lopez is a bonafide Reds killer.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
I am just glad we played for 1 run in the first inning......
Note to Reds managers....QUIT PITCHING ARROYO 125-130 PITCHES IN AN OUTING
no reason to leave bronson out there, bring in Gosling or EZ

I know it's been mentioned, but I'll mention it again ... it's like clockwork with Bronson Arroyo. When Reds managers leave him in games for an extended outing that nears or exceeds 120 pitches, Arroyo becomes ineffective for a certain period afterward.
This isn't Arroyo's fault even one percent. It's 100 percent the fault of the Reds' manager.
Sooner or later, the bouts of ineffectiveness will lengthen, and eventually it may land him on the DL with perhaps a serious injury. Narron and Narron Jr. (Mackanin) obviously have been unable to figure this out.
Speaking of Narron Jr. (Mackanin), he should be as good as gone this offseason as far as I'm concerned. Anybody watching tonight's game and knowing how much Arroyo was extended in his last start should know exactly why.

Put an end to the Lost Decade.
Why isn't Bronson on the Braves already
The guy is a 100 pitch pitcher. Yet, they don't get that.
You all should go find something productive to do, tonight...don't put yourself through this.
