    Just a guess, but maybe he is coming to replace Arroyo.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Its not surprising, the major league team does stupid stuff like this all the time.
    Also possible that he took off because nobody was paying attention. Base stealers are often given props for taking advantage of a situation like that, and it can cause a pitcher to get out of his comfort zone. Especially if the manager or pitching coach is rolling their eyes in the dugout. I agree a straight steal is kind of stupid, but perhaps the pitcher, catcher, and/or fielders were asleep at the wheel.

    5 days until arroyo is going to pitch again. I really doubt he was pulled because of that reason.

    Guess or wish? To me it's a wish, but with the AS break comming, it may be 2 weeks before Bronson throws again as they will try to give him an unofficial visit to the DL. But to me, he's done, and we are stuck with the contract, either way Maloney should replace him period.

    Could be and if so I guess its fine. I watched Jay Bruce stretch a double into a triple today and was clearly out at 3B if the guy holds onto the ball. The Reds were down 8-1 at the time. You have to go back more than 10 years to remember a time when the Reds weren't stupid on the bases. Makes you wonder if its an organizational issue or not.

    Maybe they don't want to extend Maloney, maybe he does better with a little more rest. I don't know, just throwing it out there.

    Byron Wiley has been on a tear lately. He made some adjustments after watching Votto and has been on a tear since.

    Mark James gives up a couple runs. Now 15-9.

    Ezequiel Infante is coming in to pitch and will be making his Single-A debut. He posted a 1.42 ERA and 2 BB/7 K in 6.1 innings with Billings. He had an 0.19 ERA in 47 innings with the DSL Reds last season.

    Bats up 3-0 in the 4th of the second game.

    Code:
    Player	IP	H	R	ER	BB	SO	HR	ERA
    Lehr 	3.0	0	0	0	0	4	0	3.11
    Pitches-strikes: Lehr 37-24 - 65%

    I am sitting 3 rows deep right next to first base. Lehr was completely robbed on the Bixler single. No-hitter lost because of it.

    Wiley homers again!

    3-for-3 with three homers, a walk, and 6 RBI! Wow!
