Is there logic in letting pitchers bat in AZ, but not in Atlanta?

I'm guessing the starters are only getting a few ABs today and tomorrow so they probably wanted to let as many position players hit as possible.

According to Bell on the pregame show, he wants to play the starters most of the game tonight and just a few ABs in the day game tomorrow.

I hope nobody gets hurt playing in the rain.

Winker's lazy fly ball carries all the way the warning track of Bunrust Park

Winker and Votto both seeing a lot of pitches.

Suboptimal


I hope Donaldson's Ragnar the viking mohawk haircut doesnt become popular with players this season

2nd inning for Roark so far: Walk, walk, RBI single, HBP

It seems that was the highpoint of the inning.

Roark exits the 2nd before getting the third out

5-0 Barves

Iglesias with a triple

Winker rips a double over the centerfielder, driving in Iglesias

Suarez to straight away center for the HR

Tadasimha
03-25-2019, 08:22 PM
Suarez looked like he'd gotten under that one - it ends up over the wall in center

They like hitting off Venters more than Fried

CmdrCody
03-25-2019, 08:23 PM
Puig single means theyd hit for the cycle in the inning

Tadasimha

That kind of base running is going to push Marty into an early grave before he actually retires

Stephenson tough with breaking stuff but hitters seem all over the fastball.

Didn’t help his chances that inning.

Stephenson not doing himself any favors as he competes for a bullpen spot

Got the game on the TV on mute with the Jim Day Podcast going. The Sean Casey conversation is hilarious.

Votto just struck out looking at 3 straight pitches. I’m not sure that one was in the zone.

Winker drives in Iglesias for the second time. Winker may be getting his swing back late in the spring.

Votto still looking for his

NebraskaRed

gave up a single to Freeman but nothing else for Stephenson's second inning of work.

Strikes 1 & 2 was courtesy of the Glavine/Maddux/Smoltz strike zone. Strike 3 was borderline.

Watching Iglesias play next to Peraza reveals that Peraza is not a real SS.

Good DP turn to end the inning

Yeah. Nice Brandon Phillips style glove flip by Peraza for the double play.

Scoring shouldn't be the issue this year - gotta keep more off the board

Barnhart is the only Reds starter still in the game.

Now Tucker is outta the game

I know he had a shaky start, but R. Stephenson impressed me this game. He handled adversity well and had a nice bounce back second inning.

He may be a surprise bonus this year.

He didn’t wow me but I found myself thinking he kinda resembled a ho-hum MLB pitcher.

Baby steps.

Votto just struck out looking at 3 straight pitches. Im not sure that one was in the zone.

The first two weren't even close. He got screwed. However...once you see twice how the ump's calling the outside corner, you'd best swing at the third pitch

The fact that you included the phrase “MLB pitcher” in your description, is big step forward for Stephenson.

re: Votto taking 3 strikes... this is a common occurrence when a player "knows the strike zone better than the umpire".

Sea Ray

I know it's just Spring Training but it sure seemed to me that the Braves pitchers were getting a much broader strike zone than our Reds
