    Three outs sandwiched around a Votto walk to start the game.

    Cueto gets one out on one pitch to start the Pirates part of the first on a ground ball.

    One out walk puts runner on first.

    More interestingly, Mercker's voice sounds just fine in the booth, and he is making some very interesting points on Cueto, talking about how it will the sky will be the limit as he masters his emotions and grows into his stuff.

    Gotta say, initial impressions of Merck are very favorable. Good radio voice, already quick to share observations from his playing days. Very nice.

    Bruce Ks to start the next inning.

    Kepp grounds out to SS. Stop me if you have heard that before this spring.

    Two outs.

    Alex G apparently playing five innings at SS at the minor league complex today. Per the pre-game show, Dusty apparently noted that Hairston is still very weak from the flu.

    Mercker likes Janish as a clubhouse guy and teammate.

    Janish just ripped a ball out of the park but just foul.

    They are talking about how Janish has showed much more pop this spring, something that Dusty has also talked about.

    Janish then rips a single to CF.

    They are also talking now about how Janish is without a doubt the better glove between he and Kepp.

    Pitch out and Janish is dead from here to there trying to steal 2nd.

    That has happened a LOT to the Reds this spring.

    0-0 middle of 2.

    Matt700wlw, I see you lurking. Tell the powers that be that Mercker sounds great and is bringing a lot to the broadcast already.

    LaRoche finally retired after a long foul ball battle on a fly ball to RF.

    Mercker still delightedly talking about the art of pitching. This is a great broadcast to listen to today, with Thom B asking good questions to get Mercker talking.
