    Luplow with an infield single. Cozart made a nice play to stop it but had no chance for the out.

    I'll say this. If Mahle can locate that curve ball for strikes the way he has so far, he's going to have a long sustained major league career.

    This is my first chance watching him and I like what I see so far. He's got the same poise that Castillo had when he came up.

    Agreed. They've both got that "I belong here" vibe.

    Billy is ridiculous.

    Also Angel Hernandez appears to be in rare form, even for Hernandez, in his awfulness at calling balls and strikes. He must know where the bodies are buried.

    Billy plays with the mentality of a football player and a body that's barely big enough for baseball.

    All Gennett has to do is make a normal play at 2B and the Reds announcers give him praise for it lol.
