Today is going to be a challenge for Dusty Baker. When you've been puttting a getaway day lineup on the field for the last week, what do you do when you have an actual getaway day? Expect Juan Castro and Neifi Perez to be acquired prior to game time.
I find myself really rooting for Arroyo right now. I'm not completely sure why, but I guess that I want to have hope for next season, and maybe if he pitches well the rest of the year it will carry over into next season. Or maybe I just like minutia like the fact that the Reds haven't had two 16-game winners since 1988 (Jackson/Browning). I mean, I know it doesn't make any difference, but when you root for shitty teams, you have to take what you can get.
