HUGE win last night. Need to go on and finish the sweep and show some consistency on offense. Another good start from Sonny would be really promising as well!
The Marlins are awful but good for these guys for manning up and turning it around.

Casali should be starting more, IMO.

Guy hits.

Agreed. Not much more, just a little. He's had a really nice game today. Guessing he's big in the clubhouse too.

Are we getting to a point where we can ask if Iglesias should just be the everyday SS?

If he can hit a bit (like he's been doing), I think that the defensive improvement at both SS and 2B convinces me you may be right.

The Reds did not have their fourth win until game #22 last year.

They didn't have their first series win until the last weekend of April.

Their first sweep until the second week of May.

Pinch hitting here is smart. But use a one inning reliever for the 5th inning knowing you will pinch hit for him in the bottom of the inning. Then use Stephenson.

Agree with this. He is your only real long man.

Career-wise, Puig's numbers are at his worst when batting in the 3 spot, and by far his best when in the 2 or 8.

OPS of .904 & .978 in the 2 and 8 respectively. .673 in the 3.

THom keeps going on about LaRosa's Pizza like the fans can actually get the free pizza after the game.

The only time I have ever been to a game where they got 11 K's, you couldn't get the free pizza until the next day. (And since I live 3 hours from Cincinnati, that wasn't going to happen.)

Let's not get ahead of ourselves here. Detroit didn't want to re-sign him after last year. Detroit. He's doing great now and it was a great job of signing him. My guess is he's going to play to the back of his baseball card.

Right. And this is the same board that was up in arms when Iglesias was declared a starter over Dietrich. We'll see if the calls for Iglesias to play every day are still loud when the pendulum swings on Iglesias' offense

I'm not worrying about it. Iglesias is the shortstop until Scooter is back, and Scooter said he thinks it's at least 7 more weeks until he's back.

The back of his baseball card is actually as good or better than Peraza’s currently. Peraza has room to grow, but it’s not like Iglesias is poor starting SS.

I don't care what the back of Jose Iglesias' baseball card says if he keeps playing defense the way he is. It's not like the team needs him to be a 6 hole hitter just bat him 8th every day.

I was saying this last year, but Casali is one of the more under the radar great moves by this FO.
He had just over 400 PA with the Rays from 2015-18, but prior to the start of 2018 he was cut by the Angels and the Rangers before returning to Tampa.

The LaRosa family called Bob Castellini about 10 minutes ago. "No pizza today. Have Wandy get a double play followed by a groundout"

Castellini said "Yes, my master" and sent a note down to Bell who passed it to Wandy as he took the field.

I read somewhere that Ol’ Harry would hold a grudge against certain players when he did PBP for St. Louis. To the point that he would often place unwarranted blame on players he didn’t like.

The crazy thing is that even with the offensive "explosion" lately the Reds offensive BABIP is still about 80 points under average and last in the MLB.

Meanwhile the Reds pitching BABIP is right at 300.
