For some reason, the lineups were available already via SB Nation's tools, so there you go. Usually they are not in the system until game time.
I said on twitter yesterday that we'll learn a lot about this team tonight and this weekend. They could be feeling sorry for themselves and down over yesterday's loss. Just about everyone made mistakes yesterday, so there are few innocents. The good news is that they had to take a plane ride, so hopefully that was a way for them to psychologically put yesterday's debacle behind them.
Bronson Arroyo is a good pitcher to have going today. He seems to have a way of not letting things like yesterday get in his head. I expect him to come out tonight determined to carry his team to victory. Afterward, he'll take his boat out on Lake Erie and play some coeds a collection of Oasis songs to get them in the mood.
The Indians are down. The Reds need to take 2 of 3 in this series to get their mojo back. Let's see it happen!
