Has anybody here actually seen Valiquette pitch? What kind of stuff does he have?
ctrent: A sac fly with bases load and then a 2-run double. #Reds lead 8-5. That's it for Valiquette
ctrent: Ondrusek in for the #Reds
Okay, maybe that answers the "what kind of stuff does Valiquette have" question. *sigh*
Parra singles to center
PH'er Bailey HBP
Abreu sac fly to center (Parra scores)
Coughlin doubles to right (Montero & Bailey score)
Ondrusek in for Valiquette

After 5, Reds lead 8-5
Janish bringin' out the BIG LUMBA! 2 run shot makes it 10-5
ctrent: Paul Janish with his second homer of the spring. #Reds lead 10-5
FSOhioHalMcCoy: Paul Janish? Home run? Again? Yes, again. Janish hit a 2-run homer in the sixth to give the Reds a 10-5 lead.
Paul is doing his Dickerson impersonation. Pissed off that his spot's been "taken". OPS THIS! :O)

Mesoraco PH's for Frazier and gets plunked
Hanigan K's to end the mini-threat
Speaking of Brosnan, just finished his book The Long Season. Fun, leisurely account of the 59 season, half spent with the Reds.
Did you know... he was a top 20 vote getter in MVP balloting for his contribution to the '61 pennant-winning team?
Anywho.... thanks to those keeping us updated.
