    But I don't see the point in getting upset because he isn't getting every inning of every game. He's going to see plenty of action over the next 5 weeks. However, the Reds have other young OF's who also need to see some action. As I've said, history has shown that a good Reds manager can find playing time for four (and sometimes even five) outfielders.
    The rest of the season...we can rotate OFs. But long-term, I firmly believe someone will have to go.

    I'd probably trade Schebler. But I think more PAs is more likely to help his value than it is hurt it, teams probably want to see what his numbers look like after 500 PAs in a season. I don't think Winker desperately needs every day PAs, I'm already comfortable rolling with him every day in 2018.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    If behind closed doors that is the plan, I'm cool with that.

    Why does someone have to go? Why can't you find time for four OF's, which also strengthens the bench? I find it amusing that many fans (not you, Kal) complain about the lack of quality on the bench, but we can't keep a good player because it might mean he actually will have to play occasionally. Too many fans think that the club should have eight full-time starters, and the bench players should hardly ever play (but at the same time they should be really good).
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    I want good bench guys too. But if it's not the right combo you wind up with a "the backup QB is the most popular guy in town" situation. That's not the only reason as I like my guys (assuming good regulars) to play more than 75% of the time.

If Winker were not hitting well, and had not hit well in the minors, different story I suppose.

    I would think everyone outside of Votto and Cozart to be in some sort of competition for a spot, considering it's such a bad team. The more you produce and/or improve, the more you play, right? (when there's an opportunity to do so)
    Schebler had a three week slump in July when he was battling an injured shoulder. He seems healthy now and is back raking.

    I did too. I didn't turn on the game until the bottom of the 2nd and then remembered. It's really good to see him. I was afraid we were going to lose him a couple of years ago. But he seems to be doing very well now. I wish he could be around the entire game but I guess three innings of sharing the booth with Thom is about all he can handle at this point in his life. I also agree with your post later on that the wrong person is leaving the booth after three. I wish Chris would just point Thom out the door at that point. I set my DVR for next Wednesday's game and the following Tuesday when Morgan is back in the booth. At least three innings of those games will be somewhat enjoyable.
