    I love Castillo but I'm pretty darn bummed about this horrible stretch he's been mired in.

    Aye

    Keep pitching outside when shifted to pull ...it’ll continue to not work a lot. And act surprised about it too.

    Only an organization with a sense of pride and commitment to winning would fire Bell right now.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    I fear an early shower and 5+ runs for Castillo is close...

    Honestly wondering whether they should consider shutting Castillo down for September.

    He's clearly not going right, The Reds are as good as eliminated from the race. Tell him to come back next year ready to put an entire season together.

    Sonny Gray is now this teams ace. I was really wrong about Gray.

    Regression to his mean. Same thing happening to Ryu in a big way

    He’s a little tired. Way more pitches nicely into the zone

    Its irrelevant anyhow. Bell isn't the problem, the guys who hired him and sign his paycheck are the problem.

    Me too. Now it looks like Sonny is a good pitcher who can't handle prime time. Hes in the right place.

    My fantasy baseball foes gave me the works for picking Gray over Castillo this spring.
    Too bad the bullpen has failed him this year

    So Castillo is still what he was before this season started, huh.

    Playoff race is tightening, hitters being more patient, exposing Castillo’s lack of command.
    And wow, Senzel reaches base!!
