    I agree on that. I'm saying to hit Aurillia 7th or 8th (where Omedo is today)

    I guess I have a different POV. I think even if the team is in last place, it should try to win every game for the benefit of the people that bought tickets.

    If a kid is a legitimate prospect, then I have no problem giving at bats to develop the guy. However, if the kid is not a legit prospect (ie. Machado), then it's really a waste to give the kid at bats when you have a better older player that can help you win today.

    Although Olmedo plays seldom enough that this isn't a big problem. If Olmedo started starting 3-4 days a week, I'd have a problem with it.

    25 guys on the bench and a 5th place club.

    Use em all, keep em fresh. It's good for future at bats and double switches. Plus Olmeda is actually in the Reds future.

    Yeah, I actually don't have a problem with Olmedo starting once every 10 or 14 games. You have a point there.

    But if Olmedo is part of the "future", the future sure looks bleak.

    Temps in the mid 90's. Should be a lot of sweating going on today.

    Not if his future is a reserve middle infielder.

    Not every piece of a team is a star. Look at the Orioles during the Weaver era or LaRussa's teams, good teams have all sorts of players, even glovey judy boys that make peanuts.

    You have to think of Rey as a better fielding/cheaper Juan Castro when Juan was not starting.
