Reds Make Some Changes But Still Look Terrible, Phillies 10-3
As you can tell by my extended discussion of things other than last night's game, Reds didn't look great. Arroyo didn't have his A-plus stuff and left a shade less than 3 innings with 9 runs charged to his ERA. This, at least prior to last night, had been a pretty poor Phillies offense. At least they get to play them three more times. Tonight they face something called a V. Worley. So, who knows what you want to get. Reds typically don't hit pitchers with whom they're unfamiliar very well. But, I'd probably still choose him over the other options, excepting Blanton. Bruce had a nice game, picked up 3 hits and contributed the only 3 rbis on his 11th bomb of the year. All off a tough left in Hamels. That's a good sign.
Anyway, Reds not playing particularly well but that's how a long season like this goes. Sometimes you win a few, other times you get swept by the Pirates and Indians. Cueto turns things around tonight.
