    That's an error in my book.

    Bases loaded jam now in the 4th for Bob, pitch count is piling up.

    Stephenson hits a wall n the 4th. Pretty much shouts bullpen to me.

    You watch a young starter strike out 9 batters and immediately call to put him in the bullpen. Can't relate.

    Hits a wall? Billy catches that and the inning is over. The infield hit is 5 feet to the right, maybe Cozart gets it. Baseball is a funny game.

    And if he IS hitting a wall, maybe if the Reds hadn't jerked him around in the pen so badly for the first half of the year, endurance wouldn't be such a factor.

    Sorry you disagree with my unprofessional analysis, but you can strike out 27 and still lose 10-3. He was moving right along and then hit a wall. Not a deal breaker at all, but he still needs some seasoning, in my very humble opinion.

    Nope. I've seen this act a lot. Not everyone has to tell me I'm wrong. I get it.

    Agreed. He can get that seasoning by continuing to pitch every 5th day.

    Let's see how far Stephenson can go.

    Do or do not, there is no try.

    Interesting inning. bases pretty much loaded throughout and you expect Stephenson to not help, then you get Billy who strikes out and finally Cozart also fans. I still contend that batting Billy leadoff is a huge error. When he gets on, he's lethal, but if not, he looks hapless at the plate. Out one, out two, and the usually reliable Cozart, out three. Got two runs thanks to a wild pitch (thanks, Buccos). Not a big deal, but I fear they will need the runs they left on base before the night is over.
