    Still not sure why they don't just play Scooter at 1B, eliminates the dumb elements like a backup catcher playing 1B and 2B playing LF.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Cubs might run wild on the bases today. Weak arms in both OF corners and a guy who can't hit the cut-off man in center.

    Hopefully Luis limits their opportunities.

    It sure would. Makes zero sense.

    I don't know why they just don't play Herrera at 1B. He actually has more professional experience at 1B than Scooter.

    I see a Lenny Harris type of career in store for him. Utility INF/OF and bat off the bench.

    Most "twilight" comebacks are not successful.
    It is very cool to see Matt Holliday make it all the way back to the bigs.
    Especially making the roster of a Playoff contender.
    And he looks exactly the same. Still with arms like fence posts. lol
    Cool story.

    And welcome back SCHEBLER with a base hit!l

    Is it time to send down Dixon until Sept call ups?
    And give someone else a chance for the next week 5-6 days.
    Not sure if he is even ready for AA ball right now.

    Herrera is going to wind up as a starting second baseman someplace, just not with the Reds. He's going to be traded this off season, or at least he should be.

    Very much agreed. (With the emergence of Peraza this season)
    Would have been nice to get a little more out of Bruce at the time, but I also wish Dilson would do well the rest of the season and up his value.
    I think he will play a lot for "display" reasons.

    I think Billy would have caught that Zobrist single....

    It's amazing how the Yankees have both the resources to sign absolutely ANYONE they want.

    AND

    Find a way to load their farm system with the best young talent in baseball.

    I mean a guy like Clint Frazier can't even find room on the roster.
    Normally when a team produces talent like Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Severino, etc... the cupboard goes a little dry for a while.
    But not the Yankees. Some how they are able to draft, get, or find Andujar, Torres, Hicks, and more.

    Until MLB opens it's eyes like all the other major sports have and adopt some type of revenue sharing policy AND salary cap, this is how it's gonna be.
    It's going to be the Red Sox, Yankees, Cubs, Mets, Astros, White Sox, Angels, Dodgers, etc, and then everyone else looking for crumbs.
    It was great for baseball when the Royals won the Series, but that didn't last long.
    The A's are a great story this season, but they can't really compete with the big boys either.
