Red Reporter, reporting live from Denver, CO. I'm here to catch a couple of games with the Mibster, see some mountains, and drink some fine beer. Considering I got most of that done on the first day, baseball's at the top of the list right now. We'll be in the left field bleachers tonight, so follow @redreporter on twitter, because I'll be tweeting pics out of the stadium and how the game's going. And read his preview here, because I think he knows more about the Rockies than anyone not on Purple Row.
The Reds are coming off of some rough off-the-field stuff, so it's hard to remember that before the off day, they dismantled their division rival Cardinals pretty handily. Now they have a 3-game tune up at altitude before heading back home for 4 very important games. They can make them more important by performing in this series. We'll see if Dusty uses BP in the two spot again, and if Joey Votto can channel his spirit animal Todd Helton and perform while he's here.
Tonight, the Reds have Bronson Arroyo going. Bronson had his 4th straight quality start last time out, and has been solid as ever lately. That's what the Reds need from him tonight.
Big chance here to maybe catch up a bit, as the Reds go into tonight 3 1/2 games back. Go Reds! They're my favorite team!
