Complete Coverage >



The rubber match in this hard-fought opening series features Bronson Arroyo in a day game (which without looking it up, it seems like something that happens a lot with him). He'll face Joe Blanton, who is Paul Daughtery's favorite pitcher. I know who I'm rooting for.

The lineup today will be same as last night except for the pitcher. That seemed to work pretty well. What does Devin Mesoraco have to do to get a game? Discuss that in the thread below.

Looking at the bullpen, it may be a bit thin with Marshall ailing and Hoover and Broxton probably not available. If Bronson gets into trouble, we're kind of relying on Manny Parra and Alfredo Simon. Woof.

Go Reds!
