Trevor Williams is the type of pitcher that has historically given the Reds fits.

He doesn't K that many, but he limits HRs and is ground ball dominant.

Early in the season, balls don't carry much at all. He could well dominate today.

Rooting for Sonny Gray. I'm not sold that he's the answer, but if he can come back, he could be. I don't completely buy the splits form last year and pitching at home in NY as the reason for his underwhelming season, but I like him and hope he does well. It edges the Reds closer to contention if he does. Fingers crossed.

Weird play all around on the Votto play. Almost looks like Votto could have caught it, throw was soft to 1b. And......had he let it go and covered 1b instead, Peraza would have had it, and would have been heading towards first. But.. it was hit softly.

Seeing some Yankees fans saying that him nibbling on the corners and not being willing to go after hitters is what got him killed as a Yankee, which is obviously what happened today. Hopefully Derek Johnson can put a stop to that.

Yep. First start after a short spring where starters were so babied they really didn't get a chance to work through the dead arm period, They'll all probably put up a start like this in the next week or so. Add freezing temps and no conclusions to be had here.

The fact that it’s the same catcher and different pitcher suggests it was the pitcher not getting the close calls, instead of the catcher.

Yeah I'm not sure about the spring training theory. Gray threw more ST innings than Castillo and Castillo was fine. For this theory to work we'll need to see the rest of the pitchers before making any determinations.

Wandy escapes but the continued walk issue isn't going to cut it.
