    What do you guys think of Partch? Could he be a cheap guy that is a mainstay in the bullpen the next few years? (By "mainstay" just mean he will be always on the Reds' roster, not necessarily that he will have a late-inning role.)

    I like him. He can hum that fastball at 96-97 consistently.

    Agree. 44 RBI's through 100 games from your best player who makes $20M per year is worse than not getting it done. It's simply poor production.

    It's basically 50/50. They'll either win or they will lose.

    For guy who throws in the upper 90s, Partch sure doesn't inspire a lot of confidence in me.

    Curtis Partch is under-rated. He's got stuff.

    The way they play favorites in general is infuriating. Bruce was the goat up until this season, and now it's Votto.

    Probably. Without context, all we'd have is a pile of numbers.

    Partch strikes 'em out, and the Reds have one last shot here. Be great to see one of those Bruce longballs here-- the homer has been conspicuously lacking this series for the Reds.

    Assuming you believe RBI is the be all.

    Quick question: Who has been batting right in front of Votto for the vast majority of those 100 games? I think you know the answer.

    I like him. He can hum that fastball at 96-97 consistently.
    I think pitching twice in the span of a month doesn't do much good for him.

    Good fastball. I don't trust the offspeed stuff. When it is there, it can be good. But it isn't there often enough. 6th inning type for now. Or on this team, a long man who pitches 2-4 times a month.
