    Edwin Encarnacion Appreciation Thread

    Defensive play of the year so far for the Reds.

    Another amazing play to end the game.

    Swinging an amazingly hot bat right now.

    Edwin is pwning right now.

    Props to you, Edwin.

    Edwin saved the game with that diving play to end the 7th. That is one of the top five plays of the year.

    What a fantastic play to end the 7th, and another web gem to end the game.

    Awesome.

    We won a series opener!
    And a winning streak!

    Can't wait to see it.

    Perhaps EE should go Edmonds on those 1 hoppers right at him. Step out out of the way and then dive back to get the ball and nail the runner by half a step.

    He makes those dives look routine/ and the lazy 1 hoppers look like a high-wire act.

    Props to EdE.

    The throw was almost as impressive as the stop. He's reportedly out taking groundballs early and of late it is absolutely paying off in big ways for the Reds.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Also kudos to Dusty, Wayne, or whoever for not yanking him around from the bench to AAA and back. It's been good for his confidence...

    Dusty. He deserves props for that.

    The only people that had any intention of trading EE reside on this board.

    Crede, Inge and a bunch of others.

    Beware the small sample size.

    Phillips OPS is now .867, Encarnacion .947.

    Glove flashes brilliance again tonight, but you can bet your bottom dollar it'll be a different tune when he doesn't get his feet set and gets a throw off-line.

    I still haven't decided if his future is at 3B or LF. It'll take more games like tonight and fewer Es before I become convinced.

    Glad that his stick has come around, though.

    Obviously the kid can pick it w/ the best of them @ 3B. It's all about his throwing, or, more precisely, his footwork. I really believe that Chris Spier (sp?) can help him fix it and help him become the all around stud we all want him to be.
