    You just blew my mind

    Why would you want to bring up Scott for? So Bell can rotate his non productive bat around since everyone plays on this team it seems or makes more starts than they should. Try OGrady at least and see what he can do. He also adds more speed.

    Lol, I posted this right before I took a look at Schebler’s AAA stats... and I regret suggesting bringing him up... Yikes!

    The next position player up should be Brian O'grady. The next bullpen piece just might be Jackson Stephens.

    Not Reed? He was really good in his (ridiculously) short stint

    Stephens may follow Reed but if he keeps doing what he's been doing lately, he'll be up. I looked this morning: ERA just over one, I think, in something like his last 17 innings. I'm really hoping he can be a bullpen piece next year.

    I understand and I hope those shots of JD were worth it.

    Zach Dook needs to be replaced with Reed.

    Re: I'd make Roster move with Duke

    How does RZ feel about Duke now? A lot of his peripherals still look bad, but he's definitely improved after a disastrous start.
    FTR, I like Bowman and I want Reed on the staff when he's ready, but has anyone changed their opinion on Duke going forward?
    Just curious.
    I'm a little drunk and don't really want to look up his splits, but he's clearly been better recently.
    Is it good enough?
    I say keep Bowman while he's pitching well.
    I also have zero confidence in Wandy, his 2017 seems to be a mirage.
    Derek Johnson has apparently been a difference maker for several of our pitchers. I'd have hoped Wandy would be one to benefit, but he hasn't.

    Since there are no teams on the moon, I guess South Korea's far enough from Cincinnati to satisfy me.

    The Reds will need a better LHP option behind Amir if they're gonna make a run but I can live with Duke for the time being, he's been okay since April ended. I absolutely feel more comfortable with him than Wandy, who I do not wish to see pitching for the Reds again in any capacity.

    Bowman was slept on, he was pretty solid for STL until he got injured last year. He's clearly not THIS good, but he's generally a perfectly fine middle reliever.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Bell seems to like his 3 lefty reliever options, so I suspect when Reed is back, Bowman goes back down. He doesn't get much use anyway.
    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.

    Too many people do not understand simple size and effectiveness when it comes to players like this
