    No problem. For the record, I think if Cingrani can just develop an average breaking ball and change that he can throw enough to keep his FB% below 70%, he'll be a beast. More than just a solid starter IMO.

    Right now, a lot of guys are chasing his Fastball up out of the zone. Call me skeptical of that continuing all year and I think he'll need something else to keep them from sitting on Fastballs in the hitting zone. Given the Reds roster of solid starting pitchers for all 5 spots, I'd let him finish his development and keep him on call if some one else goes down.

    There could be a valid point that AAA is too easy for him and won't force him to use his other stuff though.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    I'm no Heisey fan and I'm all for giving Paul a regular shot, but he's got to do better than that. Maybe we can trade for Yonder and put him out in left. Or Dunn?

    Another E on Rendon. Airmails the throw to 1st. Cozart safe. He's EE. Solid hitter, excellent range & glove....zero arm accuracy.

    You have a 4-0 lead, why use someone off the bench to hit for Cingrani now? Might need them later in the game. Smart move, in my opinion.

    Joey's going to hit a no doubter soon. He's got to be irritated by those close calls.

    Or not. Votto K's on a pitch in the dirt. 4-0 it stays.
