Bronson Arroyo will take the mound today in search of his 12th victory of 2012. He has won 14 or more games in a season on five other occasions and barring injury or bad luck, should get to that point again by year's end.
The 35-year old veteran is on pace to eclipse the 200-inning mark for the seventh time in the last eight years -- he currently sits at 164 innings pitched. The only time with which he failed to pitch in 200 or more innings since 2005 was last season when he finished the campaign a mere one frame shy (199 IP).
Speaking of 2011, Arroyo has all but proved that the rough season he had last time around was merely a fluke. His numbers are much better in '12 and much more in line with his career averages. As it stands now, the golden-haired hurler is on par to establish new career-bests in K/BB (3.75) and BB/9 (1.5). His current ERA of 3.84 would be the lowest for him in a year since 2009 and his SO/9 would be the highest sin...

Based on the way Bronson Arroyo has pitched of late, he should give the Cincinnati Reds a good chance to bounce back from a frustrating defeat.

If you're a Cincinnati Reds fan you know the future of the franchise is very bright. The next several years should bring us all plenty of great Redlegs memories and victories. However, I think it'd be fun to take a look back at some of the past years to remember some of the best players from the 2000-2009 Reds teams.

Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto, who has not played for the Reds since July 15, might return to the Cincinnati lineup on Monday, although the decision ultimately will be Votto's. Votto has been out more than six weeks since he had surgery to repair a torn medial meniscus in his left knee. He hit a home run in a rehabilitation game with Triple-A Louisville on Saturday...

The arrival of Joey Votto and Jay Bruce in Cincinnati ended a drought from their farm system. Bruce was the twelfth overall selection in the 05 draft and now in his fifth MLB year. Though there have been periods of inconsistency, he's established himself as a solid run producer in the middle of the Reds lineup and leads them in both HR and RBI at the age of 25.

Johnny Cueto's bid to become the majors' first 18-game winner fell short on Monday as the Reds (82-54) were edged out by the Philadelphia Phillies (65-70), 4-2. Jimmy Rollins smacked a 3-run homer in the fifth that proved to be all the visitors needed on a soggy Labor Day in Cincinnati. Despite the loss, Dusty Baker's club still enjoys the largest division...
