    Royals at Reds - 3/16/11 Spring Training

    If you have mlb.com audio, you can listen to this one. Royals radio is available throught that medium.

    It just started. Arroyo on the bump for Cincy and close to an Opening Day line-up with the exception of Renteria in at SS for Janish.

    Two quick outs for Arroyo, then a single to Butler, and a long home run from Kihuae (that spelling is wrong, I know). Man but does Pecota love Kihuae, by the way, for those of you in fantasy drafts.

    Montgomery on the mound for the Royals, isn't he one of their hotshot prospects? I could look it up, but...I'm being lazy.

    Anyway, 2-0 Royals bottom of 1. Stubbs was just sent away on three pitches. Dusty's line-up is Stubbs/Phillips/Votto/Rolen/Gomes/Bruce/Renteria/Hanigan .

    For those of you that look for signs of good things in spring, Phillips just worked his rear end off to get a walk.

    Then, sadly, all his effort was wasted when Joey grounded into a first pitch double play.

    2-0 Royals after one.

    Conclusions thusfar? The whole season looks emperiled. The Reds are clearly not ready.

    Somewhere Benihana got excited as Alex Gordon doubles off the wall in right to start the KC second. He's probably trying to put together a Hamilton/Grandal/Leake package to get him.

    Former Brewer Escobar singles in Gordon. Bruce, in spring training mode, was off with his throw home. 3-0 KC.

    We are not quite to getting-his-work-in territory for Arroyo, but I am starting to dust off that phrase.

    Not sure he will be getting enough AB's. Royals have lots of good young hitters. But if he does, I would agree with Pecota.

    Arroyo digs deep, thinks of his JTM commercials, and honors the spirit of his tireless flogging of Grade D beef from two years ago by working out of it.

    3-0 Royals middle of 2.

    Unless I am missing something, the job at 1b is his w/ Butler at DH.

    Stubbs says no-soup-for-you to butler w/ a diving catch to save extra bases to start 3rd.

    Arroyo decides Royal blue is not same as Blue Jay blue and allows no runs in 3rd. 3-0 Royals still.
