Go BABY!!! Paul! BIG FLY! 4-1 Reds!
Atta boy, XP!
Platoon Heisey (when back) and Paul until Ludwick comes back. Next Question.
XMan is a very sound hitter. He does some things I like. That was an outstanding at bat. He was not thrown by a terrible strike called on the third pitch.
Really think Xavier is very underrated.
Hannahan strikes out, but at the end of 1, it's 4-1 Reds.
Yes, I think Cingrani is better than Pedro...but is coming up right now better for Cingrani or is it better for him to stay put for now? I'm not sure everybody is asking the right question. Our focus is on the Reds and right here and now...a wider lens is sometimes helpful.
I could care less who they brought up to start this game and maybe another. As Dusty said it will hopefully be 1 maybe 2 games. I don't think you bring Cingrani up for 2 starts and waste an option on him. IMHO he needs to be in Louisville working on his secondary pitches. But hey, thats just me!
