    6/11/2019 Reds vs Indians

    Castillo goes tonight. Winker is DHing while VanMeter is in LF. I like that.

    With DH Reds get to use an extra hitter. They chose the LHH off the bench against a RHP. Namely, Van Meter.

    When I first came to redszone recently, the first thing I saw was this: The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see... Thanks, wrong verb- I thot, man, I'm gonna like this place.
    Big chance tonite, local boy Josh VanMeter- coupla hits hopin hard. Few Fort Wayne IN area boys have made it to the bigs. One not too long ago made it to manager of the Indians. Uh.... can't remember his name (swell indication of me age). OK, looked it up- Eric the Wedge. Has anyone even heard of FWI?

    I'm eager to see if Van Meter can play his way into more PT -- perhaps a platoon with Puig.

    What's everyone's read on VanMeter? Is he pressing? Is he not getting enough at bats? His OBP is pretty good but there's a lack of pop with his bat. Is this going to be a short stay?

    EDIT: Is he really only 5'11" 165? He looks much thicker.

    I like Van Meter's swing, no major, glaring hole -- unlike some right hand hitting Reds.

    I think hes just not getting enough consistent AB's. Guys never been a part time player and has done extremely well as a PH considering.

    I don't know where you get "average pitches seen" but he seems to always work the count. I have as much faith in him as anyone in that lineup.
    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.
