Stubbs doesn't have any stolen bases in his last 16 games. I think you gotta use that speed better.

I really want Cueto to win the Cy Young. He gets overlooked by so many journalists/analysts it's crazy, like they're just trying to look past him to make a case for someone else. Gotta get him a win today and make it hard for any voter to not pencil him in as 1 at the end of the regular season.

With how the rotation is set he could miss a start his last chance to ensure him being ready for game 1.....if we start on Sat, we may get the Sun start and then he wouldn't miss any.

This lineup he's facing is playoff-like. Phillies have a lot of veteran hitters....though after the first 4 their players are quite young.

Game predictions

Cueto 6 2/3 109 pitches

Scott Rolen #1 Web Gem

Frazier, Phillips and Ludwick homers

Stubbs a SB and a great catch in the LCF gap

BP makes an error on an easier type play....but homers afterwards

Chapman save with 2 K and 101 mph top speed

Reds win 6-4....games ends at 4:09

Bruce goes deep.

JJ Hoover strikes out more batters than Aroldis Chapman.
Cueto picks off a runner.

Hamilton won't make the opening day roster, imo. He needs more seasoning. He would have to skip AAA to do that.

Yeah you're probably right. Maybe he can make it up sometime during the season next year.

Nothing against Hamilton but I hope he does not come up before September. If he comes up before that it probably means cf is a problem.

They did a study on where the sign was originally. It proved that it was physically impossible to hit the sign. The bat or ball would fail before the distance could be reached. Oddly it was moved shortly after that.

I'd rather they put it in a really reachable part of the park but make it smaller. Just so we know there's a legit chance of that truck being won.

I slow-mo'd the Pierre play to 1/15th speed and Cueto's foot beat him, the ball was there in time clearly (at that speed) but all I could tell was the ball was not secure in his glove and rolled around for the whole moment and by the time it was secured he was past the bag.

Tough call, weird looking play for the ump....Cueto hesitated and Phillips tossed it....could've been crisper for sure.

Cueto has to focus better....with 2 outs 2 guys with 10 career combined hits get on base for two guys with 4100 combined career hits.

Better to have three shots with the lefties than just two. Gomes was an automatic out against Halliday. You just can't parade 7 right handed batters up there against a quality right handed pitcher. (And some days even a mediocre right handed pitcher.)

No chance? Cmon. With Votto back, we would have probably a little more than a chance. I'd take us to beat them if we faced them in the playoffs. It won't happen though.

At this point i doubt Votto ever gets back to 100%, 90% is the best we can hope for the evidence just isnt there to prove the reds would do well against the phillies when it matters. Theyve straight crushed the reds the last few seasons and handed them the most dominating nlds loss ive ever seen

Rosario's AVG probably won't allow him to be in the discussion. Guy is strong, though. Lots of pop.
