    Thank goodness I won't have to watch any of the new guys play. It would be terrible getting a look at them against ML competition.

    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Price feels an obligation to field his starting team against the Brewers, who are in a playoff competition.

    When the Reds play the Mets four games next Thursday-Sunday, you'll see new players.

    Awfully nice of Price to consider all of the potential playoff teams above his own - which is in the midst of a difficult rebuild. I'm sure those teams will return the favor next year and go easy on a younger roster as a "thank you" to Price for doing that.

    FYI - my sarcasm is certainly not directed at you, KC. I'm simply frustrated with the majority of decisions Price has made to this point, and if that's really some consideration of his when creating the lineup, then frustration levels are still rising.

    Price is doing the professional thing. It's good for his reputation and the team's reputation around MLB.

    One thing for sure -- if Price were to tank this series, the Brewers would remember and act accordingly next time around.

    Act accordingly how? By also playing their regulars? The Reds would actually be helping the Brewers by starting some younger players in order to get more of an extended look at what they might be able to bring next year.

    Additionally, I'm not advocating Price literally start a lineup of replacements, a-la spring training. I agree that would be unprofessional. Strategically rotating some new players in game-by-game however, during a period of expanded rosters, seems like a perfectly acceptable and fair practice for a rebuilding team.

    I wouldn't consider that tanking a series. There can be a middle ground.

    Playing one guy isn't tanking.

    Re: Brewers @ Reds 9-4-17

    Who do you want in the lineup? There are seven players on the bench.

    Turner
    Wallach
    Peraza
    Vincej
    Kivlehan
    Ervin
    Winker

    Other than Winker (who is still nursing an injury) and Peraza (who gets plenty of playing time), I don't see too many guys who warrant much PT.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    I would have started Ervin and given Duvall a break.

    But Bailey is the key guy that needs to do well today.

    Easy inning for Bailey. Schebler misses on diving attempt and it goes for double, and Braun needled one down 1st base line to set up 1st and 3rd with one down. LIner to Billy who nails guy at home. Sweet.

    Interesting. Duvall sat five games ago, on August 31. I know he's slumping, not sure he needs to sit twice in five games.

    Anderson is a tough right hander. Not sure why hitting RHH Ervin against him would be helpful today.

    I could see the argument for Winker today if he were healthy.
