    I would really like to see this. Let Arroyo get some extended rest with the All-Star break, and see if Willis is lightning in a bottle. I know it is a long shot, but not totally unfathomable, but if Willis regained his old form that would be as big as big as acquiring a #1 starter.

    Arroyo is either hurt or sick or both. This is a good time to DL him with the all star break coming up. Hopefully Willis brings a bat too. The Reds need some pop in their lineup.

    I heard Arroyo will start Wednesday.. So I don't think the D-Train is headed to St. Louis

    Fay had it in his blog, in the notes section, that Arroyo will start Wednesday.

    I think Bronson will do everything in his power to make sure he sustains his injury-free streak and never missing a start ever.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    He's not in charge, though you're no doubt right he'll do whatever he can to stay in there.

    I hope he gets overruled. The team needs to find out if rest will help him and it needs to find out what they have in Willis. If Willis is solid, they can feel better about pursuing offense, instead of pitching, in trade talks. Time is growing short.

    Bronson would miss only one start if the Reds put him on the DL retro to 7/2 (day after his last start). He would be eligble to return 7/15 which would be the third game after the AS Break. I think this extended break could be good for him long term especially with all of the medical issues he's dealt with this season (mono, back, dizziness).

    The Reds are announcing Arroyo today, then they're going to sneak Willis in through the secret tunnel that was discovered during the rain delay of the game when Miguel Batista "started." The roster move will not be announced until after LaSuperGenius turns in his lineup. It's known by the code name "Dusty's Revenge."

    bronson trying to be superman isn't helping the team. he has been shelled the last few starts by homerun balls. if something is wrong with him he needs to miss a start and not continue to hurt the team. i'm on my way to st. louis now for the final 2 games. give me something to cheer about.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    If you dig the long ball you should see plenty of it the day Arroyo pitches.

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    Willis might be able to neutralize the Cardinal LH batters.

    we will have to see if lasupergenius worries about what potential pitching changes TheDusty may make after 7/9th of the game is already over. My bet is he stacks up the lefties for the majority of the game despite the possibility of looking foolish when Bray comes in for the 8th.

    I think most know he'll never be what he was, but if he can reproduce his AAA #'s of late, then great, that's better than Arroyo's been for the most part this year.

    They should put Bronson in bed for 3 weeks and give him an IV, then a rehab stint, if he's still having mono effects.

    Probably stumbled over the fact he's on pace to give up 45 dingers in 190 innings
