Okay, here we go. Last series before the All-Star break, and the Reds need to sweep to go into the break with a winning record.
I’ll take 2 out of 3 against a struggling Mets squad, but even that might be difficult if Bronson Arroyo doesn’t pitch well tonight. He’s been simply terrible lately, and the Reds cannot afford to fall behind early as they have in most of Arroyo’s recent starts.
Discuss the game here. Discuss those ridiculous Scott Rolen rumors if you’d like, but it’s not going to happen.
In related news, here’s a story about Dusty Baker. He’s been doing some research, evidently, in order to help bring the Reds out of their funk.
