Left hander on the mound so they must pull as many Left hand hitters as possible. Horrible lineup. Castillo better throw a shutout and hope someone hits a bomb.

Iíll say it again. The best hitters need to be in the lineup. This lineup is LOADED with out makers.

So theyíll probably score eleventy runs

I donít want to see any lineups without Votto or Winker...ESPECIALLY when Suarez, Puig, Kemp, Peraza, Iglesias arenít hitting

It only makes sense when there is a struggling lead-off type who you want directly in front of the top of the order without the pitcher making an out in between them (Billy Hamilton is a guy who should always hit 9th). It keeps them in a lead-off role, but prevents them from getting the extra PA actually leading off would give them. On this team, it only makes sense when Peraza hits 9th behind the pitcher. Anybody else besides the pitcher in the 9 hole is just Bell trying to look progressive when he's really an old school third generation guy.

Dusty Specials were more formidable. Bad enough we have to play Kemp, but does he have to hit cleanup?

Mitri
04-20-2019, 04:40 PM
The bottom line with lineup is it needs our lord and savior, Nick Senzel. Pushing both Kemp and Schebs to the end of the bench should do the offense wonders.

Could be a Castillo thing? Who has caught his other starts.

I applaud Bell for mixing it up early, and am fine with the Votto rest. With Joey, I donít it is 100% Bellís decision. There is input from the player and he knows he needs work in the cage and to reset some things in his head.

This from reds.com might help explain Bells reasoning on pitcher batting 8th and his use of Duke.


Pitcher bats eighth again
Bell put his pitcher in the No. 8 spot of the lineup for the second straight game on Friday. Right-hander Anthony DeSclafani batted ahead of second baseman Jose Peraza on Friday. The previous night, pitcher Tanner Roark was ahead of catcher Tucker Barnhart, who delivered a two-run home run from the nine hole.

The idea, Bell said, is to put a hitter ahead of leadoff batter Joey Votto when the lineup turns over and create RBI opportunities for the top of the order.

One of the forces behind it is that starters rarely go deep intro a game, and rarely get more than two AB’s a game before they are pinch hit for.

Interesting strategy, but Bell used Peraza.

:D

mamell
04-20-2019, 08:08 PM
So in some kind of logic I simply don't get Peraza is actually hitting 9th after going through the lineup twice and someone pinch hits and walks? Otherwise he's hitting leadoff? Shoulda just traded back for Billy.. At least he would have offered some defensive prowess and some speed on the basepaths.. On this team he might have been leading with his perpetual .215 BA.. a regular Ted Williams..

What happens if Luis looks tired next inning. Are they going to pull him too as well.
Sometimes pitchers have a tired looking inning but don’t implode. Or it does not mean they will.
But by all means keep burning up the bullpen to justify 13 pitchers.

Luis Castillo looking a little tired in the 4th after hitting is a lot different than Disco (a guy who was terrible last year and has arm issues) looking tired in the 6th.

I have a lot of friends who are die hard Dodger fans....so I watched a decent amount of Machado last year after the trade. He is really one of the most talented baseball players I have ever watching....just pure natural ability. That said, my guess he plays well below his potential, because dude is lazy....and I cant imagine him working on his craft like many of the greats in the offseason. Even seeing him out of uniform....no muscle, kind of sloppy build for a young baseball player.

He has four gloves in his locker, and that has value on a club with only four spots on the bench. He also has shown that he can occasionally run into a long ball. Remember, he is a replacement on the roster due to injury.

Crazy to think that, arguably, the two biggest non-Votto cornerstones of this franchise were acquired for bad spare parts, and the biggest trade chips we’ve sold off recently (Frazier, Chapman and Cueto) yielded Peraza, an average player in Schebler and chaff.
