I'm sure if I read what I've written in these Game Threads about Bronson Arroyo all season, I come off as a whiny little snot-nosed snot. Not that there's anything wrong with that. But give him his due: he's a 1.0+ WARP player this year. Thinking about Arroyo's HR problem, while watching Homer Bailey get lit up for a pair of 2-run shots in the first inning last night, leads me to believe that the Reds need to issue their entire pitching staff a Danny Graves circa-2000 sinker-ball. I think there are still some down in the Y2K bunker. More importantly, if there are any outside starting pitcher pick-ups this offseason, the Reds oughta be wary to Shields themselves against the fly-ball pitcher. Great American Ballpark and (don't hate me for saying this) an outfield with Yonder Alonso on the right-handed pull side, should be factored into any acquisition.

Lineup after the jump.
