4/16 Game Review
Louisville won 7-4. Box Score
Kristopher Negron went 1-3 with a walk, double, RBI and 2 runs.
Todd Frazier went 2-3 with a walk, double and 3 RBI.
Danny Dorn went 2-3 with a walk and an RBI.
Paul Janish went 1-4 with a double and a run.

Jeff Francis allowed 2 runs in 6 innings with a walk and 9 strikeouts.
Travis Webb threw 0.2 perfect innings with 2 strikeouts.
JJ Hoover threw a perfect 9th with 2 strikeouts for the save.
Jeff Francis has 9 strikeouts in his last 11 innings. I wouldn’t have guessed he would have had that in Single A. Very impressive so far. Travis Webb lowered his ERA to 1.69 on the year. After a slow start, Todd Frazier is hitting .333 over his last 5 games with 5 RBI.

Scott Rolen is healthy.
"Unbelievably, yes," he said. "I am."
Rolen, who is coming off his fourth surgery on his left shoulder, went 1-for-4 Tuesday night in the Reds' 2-1 loss in 10 innings to the St. Louis Cardinals. The hit raised his average to .135.
The shoulder isn't the issue.
"He looks healthy," Baker said. "He was healthy when...
Chapman has been nothing short of outstanding so far in '12
Why isn't Aroldis Chapman in the starting rotation? It's been a hotly-debated question amongst the Reds faithful this spring. And one expert in particular thinks the team could benefit more by having The Cuban Missile pitch every five days. In his latest column, ESPN.com's Keith Law highlights six...
The Cincinnati Reds started their
second series of the season against the Cardinals tonight, this time
in St. Louis. The Reds headed into the game hoping to recover from
losing two out of three at home against the defending World Series
chapmions and improving to one game under .500 and coming within 2
games of first place.
Johnny Cueto and Kyle Lohse both pitched...

The Reds and Nationals needed extra innings for the third time in the four game set and the Reds were looking for a different result than the first three games. The Reds bats were alive early in a game that the Reds took from...
I heard an interview with Joey Votto over the weekend and he talked a little bit about the Reds bats. He mentioned how they were in a slump and all it takes is one hit to end a slump.
Maybe the Reds got those hits on Sunday. In narrowly avoiding a sweep by the Nationals, some of the biggest slumpers currently for the Reds came up big. Scott Rolen was on base when Ludwick smacked...
Dayton won back-to-back games for the first

Forgive the delayed podcast listening, but in last week’s Jonah Keri Grantland pod he had ESPN Baseball Tonight anchor Steve Berthiaume on to take a tour around the league after one week.
When the boys were talking about the Cincinnati Reds, Berthiaume dropped an interesting tidbit on Joey Votto’s recently signed 10 year 225 million dollar deal:

The sky looked as if it was the limit for Cuban flamethrower Aroldis Chapman when he made his Major League debut for the Cincinnati Reds two years ago.
Chapman dazzled baseball fans when he hit 103 MPH on the gun during his first outing on American soil. It seemed as if the 24-year-old Cuban Missile was destined...
