The Cincinnati Reds lost to the Colorado Rockies yesterday, dropping their record to 8-9 on the Spring. Bronson Arroyo was the loser, in more ways than one, but Aroldis Chapman provided the scare, being taken out early with a stiff lower back.
The Reds have their only off-day of Spring Training today. They host the San Francisco Giants at 4:05pm EDT on Wednesday the 24th. If you can’t let a day go by without Reds baseball, you may need some counseling. However, if you’re in denial, you can catch the MLB Network’s 30 Clubs in 30 Days episode about the Reds at 10pm.

Looks like the RHM household chose the right year to upgrade to HD satellite, which is happening Wednesday. This year, FSN Ohio will be simulcasting all 145 televised Reds games in HD. This will be our first year watching baseball in HD, and I can’t wait. Especially after seeing the wretched video quality coming from the standard feeds offered by MLB Network and FSN Ohio the last couple days.
