Tyler Mahle RHP, #30 vs Jordan Lyles RHP, #31

I'm not sure if there is a rule on posting these. I figured I would provide some fresh blood and get us back on track.

Scott Schebler should not be starting, or hitting 5th, in a major league lineup.

As poorly as it could potentially go on the defensive side, small sample size be damned I think you've got to go Winker in CF, Puig in RF and Kemp in LF. I've seen enough of Scott Schebler. I realize he's not the only one with an 0 for the season but at least the others are putting the ball in play and in Winker's case hitting some absolute rockets just right at people. Schebler has 3 months worth of swings and misses on fastballs in 5 games.

Pretty clear Schebler is going to get every chance to prove he can play CF everyday. All we can do is hope he gets that bat going. And yes he has frustrated the hell out of me.

Winker hasn't hit a lick and is not draws either. Not defending Schebler he is been awful but Winker has been just as awful.

Certainly. As I said, I realize he's not the only 0-fer. But Winker has hit the ball on the screws a few times, just right at a glove. That's all I'm saying.

HammerTime

My thing on Winker Vs Schebler (if that’s even a real thing) is we pretty much know what Schebler is and he probably doesn’t factor into the Reds long term plans. I hope not at least unless it’s as a 4-5th OFer. We still need to figure out what Winker can bring to the table.

Pittsburgh is a pretty big stadium, I think they need to use Schebler in CF. Not vouching for him, but nobody else plays CF.

Despite his slump, I’d hit Schebler lead off. He does well there generally. Winker does well hitting lower down.

Hope Reds score some runs tonight.

If Mahle ends up 2nd highest WAR of the rotation something went really wrong. I’m not saying that as a negative to Mahle.

i disagree. i could see a scenario where the reds have 4-5 starters who all have decent WAR this year, but mahle ends up as the second-best of the group. i'm not saying by a large margin or anything. but i think he's as good as anyone in this rotation, so him finishing as one of the top-2 starters won't surprise me.

Arizona is a very easy environment to hit in. The biggest issue is breaking balls do not move as much because of the dry air. So hitters are not use to the movement. It is why you like to bet on teams that play in Florida when they play teams from Arizona in the first few weeks. It can also affect pitchers by them not getting use to their braking stuff.
