This post is BABIP-lucky.
If you are going to use a stat, at least try to make it somewhat relevant and have some meaning.
Frazier is entering his prime years when a players' OPS usually rises about 40 points from the previous seasons.
His combined OPS from the last three seasons is over .800 at the AAA level. He has nothing left to prove there. He can't grow as a player anymore in AAA. He needs to be seeing Major League pitching, whether that's for 200 appearances a year or 600. That's how he's going to grow at this point of his career. He proved in Spring Training that he not only belonged, but should have been given the starting Utility Infielder/Utility Outfielder's job. He'd be the most valuable player off of this year's bench, hands down.
Todd Frazier? That's who this argument is about? Just what the Reds need- another right handed hitter.
The Reds finally win a game, and everyone's still are at each others throats. Can we lighten up a bit and relish a hard fought victory?
The umpiring WAS brutal today.
Patience + Laz Diaz + good swing = grand slam.
Honestly....if Diaz doesn't squeeze Detwiller in the first....we may have had yet another 1 run output and loss.
Maybe we can say Votto and Ludwig are good to go now.
Chapman so far has 8 innings, 0 runs, 15 K and no walks. Not fair.
Wins are good!
No offense against anyone but LeDoux needs to start the game thread Tuesday.

*Bat Votto SECOND, please?*
