April 10th 2009, The Cincinnati Reds picked up their first win against the New York Mets thursday night. Bronson Arroyo put together a quality start on the mound. Producing back-to-back three-hit games, Joey Votto drilled a three-run shot and collected the go-ahead RBI single as Cincinnati won its first game. Paul Janish hit a two-run single and Bronson Arroyo got the victory, allowing five runs in six innings. Francisco Cordero also picked up his first save of the season. I’m content that Votto is beginning to become one of the biggest hitting threats in the National League. Let’s just say im extremly glad that he is on my fantasy team!

It’s a good thing Cincinnati isn’t another New York, fans are calling for heads after the Yanks dropped their first two games to the Orioles. They dished out more money than I can think of to bring in top players C.C. Sabbathia and Mark Teixeira. Both struggled in their first games with the pinstripes on. Believe me New York, you got the talent give them at least 3 games. I know people dream to play a game in the “Big Apple”, but I can even begin to function how tough it must be to make a mistake and believe me you are going to hear it from fans and the media. But in Reds country we give chance after chance, and I dont know if its just me but I really would like to see the Reds put together a winning season for once. I honestly believe for the first time in years, that they have the talent to do it; pitching staff and the lineup. I love the new young look that Walt Jocketty and his crew have brought in. I was personally getting tired of the old and slow lineup that we had to deal with in the past couple of years. After a great Spring Training, I really thought the Reds would come out and show what they where made of these first few games,but not to knock the Mets down they are a serious contender in the NL East. I think give em’ a month and we can predict how the Reds season will pan out. I’m going to pray we can pull off a ummm “Tampa Bay Miracle in Cincinnati”?
