Arroyo gave the Reds innings and saved the bullpen, which is what I was bitching about before last night's game. So I should be happy. While I can't get happy about a shutout loss - or any loss - at least everyone got a breather (bats included).

Maybe the Reds wore themselves out taking in the sights. Maybe Yankee Stadium lore got to their heads with Pettite on the mound. Or maybe they're one disciplined bat short of a decent offense.

Even Homer Bailey's peripherals betray him as a 4.50 ERA pitcher by nature. He draws an opposing pitcher that the Reds really should be able to get on. But that might not be how this works.

Believe it or not, a winning record for the New York trip and a winning historical inter-league record against the Yankees is still possible. You can still make it there, which by the commutative property means you can make it anywhere. Go Reds!
