Bronson Arroyo & Brandon Phillips

Bronson Arroyo was named the co player of the week for the first time in his career. Bronson led all pitchers throwing 16 innings including a complete game for the first of his two wins last week. If Bronson finishes up the season this strong he can still have a pretty fair season after getting off to probably the worse start up of his career. Rock and Roll Bronson!!!

Off the field, it was reported today by Tom Brennaman during the Reds broadcast, that Brandon Phillips was the Reds recipient of the Roberto Clemente award for his outstanding work on the field and off the field. Tom told of several things that Brandon did off the field including giving $25,000 to a local youth league field that was in dire need of fixing up. Anytime we can help the youth of this country do something positive with their free time, especially play baseball, only good things can happen. I have always said that Brandon is more than a great baseball player, if anyone is out there signing autographs before a game you can bet Brandon is one of them, and he is always doing it with a smile!!!!
