Votto a day off. Could this be Shebler's last day for a while with the Reds?

as of today the Reds have allowed the fewest numberof runs (99) in the majors.

Boston Red

This is the day Mahle turns things back around! He's pretty good for being the weak link in the rotation, but he's definitely been that since his first start.

HammerTime

Taking 3 of 4 on the road would be excellent.

Taking 3 of 4 on the road would be excellent.

And it would mean a winning road trip at 4-3.

Bell must read RedZone....following my rule of if Schebler is in the lineup, then Casali should be in the lineup. It seems like Puig could use a day or two off. Syndergaard has got lit up (per his standard) in recent outings....hopefully we can get one more in before he gets straight.

Syndergaard threw thigh high to Winker, until the change-up Kd him.

it would be very Reds-like to help a struggling pitcher return to form

Votto a day off. Could this be Shebler's last day for a while with the Reds?

Unless the Reds use at least 6 pitchers today, I think a pitcher will go down so Senzel can come up.

Probably not. My interpretation of the moves yesterday meant that it's just Senzel replacing Ervin. (not what I would do)

OK, ump gave us one back. Great inning, even if he's already at 45 pitches. I'd take 5 shutout innings from Tyler.

HammerTime
05-02-2019, 12:47 PM
Bullpen is likely gonna log a lot of innings this game. Hopefully he can get through 5. Reds are gonna need 4-5 runs to win this I think. Lets get on the board.

I've watched every start of Thor's this year (his, not mine) and he has labored tremendously in each one. He's not looked good yet.

This is a random observation -

Catchers don't even try to give the pitchers those scuffed-up balls anymore, do they?

NebraskaRed
05-02-2019, 01:08 PM
if the Reds were having tons of success with swinging at the first pitch, then nobody would care.

They aren't.

I think the rule is that if the ball hits the dirt then you get a new ball from the ump automatically, and the other ball is tossed back to the dugout for inspection.

Not watching the game, but see the score. Is Thor pitching well, or are we just doing what we've been doing all year with the bats so far? Or bit of both?

Yeah, but you'd think a guy would try to hook his pitcher up once in a while with a nicely scuffed ball. Worst thing the ump can do is ask for it back.

I was OK with Disco yesterday...he was looking a little shaky and there is no margin for error with this offense.

This is a replay, basically, of the 1-0 loss the Brewers (also a just after noon hour start) back when the first homestand ended.

HammerTime
05-02-2019, 01:54 PM
Are we really going to lose 1-0 because our pitcher grooved one to his counterpart since, you know, he's just a pitcher?

Unless they somehow get Thor out of the game it looks that way.

Mahle has had a penchant for running into trouble in the middle innings this year. Feel like he was just being proactive.

Yes. He was already inefficient just to get through five. Mahle has a lot to learn. But, how is he going to learn it if he doesn't face adversity? Got to keep pushing the expectations on young players.

I didn't even realize the game was going on this early so I have the game tuned in for my 90 year old pop.. Of course he doesn't remember a single player's name nor stats of any of them, but he enjoys watching..

They are a pretty forgettable bunch....Just say dad there is Fred .187 and there is Mike .142 and there is Steve.099 and Mr Right Fielder .198 AKA Mr. 3 pitches

it's quickly becoming the narrative this season: Last year they could hit but the pitching was garbage. Now the pitching is great and they can't hit.

Reminds one of the 60s Reds.

1962. 1965. 1968. 1969. more offense than pitching.
1963. 1964. 1967. Way more pitching than offense.
