What brings pain to my eyes...

2012 draft, first round:
12. Reds - Nick Travieso
18. Dodgers - Corey Seager

Senzel CF .2
Votto 1B -.2
Suarez 3B 1.5
Winker LF -.1
Puig RF -.3
Dietrich 2B 1,1
Iglesias SS .7
Mahle P .9
Barnhart C -.1

I think the fwar of the starting line up brings tears to my eyes when 4 of the 8 position player are at negative war

Not surprising that the Reds are on pace for a 72-90 record

A Reds scout should be fired each year on draft day until Seager retires, just to undo the horribleness of that pick.

They are guessing and somehow they are always wrong. Senzel should be looking fastball all day against Buehler and he takes one right down the pipe on 2-2. Just doesnt make much sense.

Not a dominating close but it works! Series win tomorrow!

That’s really all you can ask for vs a team as good as the Dodgers.

Buehler was not happy !!

I saw that close-up of Buehler's face as he was snarling at Verdugo "WTF! You didn't even try!!"

Senzel had a similar play a few games ago. Even is recreational adult softball leagues, anyone that has played CF knows that exact hit is one of the hardest to read off the bat. it is low, and straight so there is not viewing angle.....they are just as easy to run up too much on and it goes over your head as they are to not run up quick enough on.

Absolutely. The cards were falling right for the Reds all game long...the Dodger CF that hesitated for an instant resulting in a hit, the tough toss from their SS that was un-fieldable at first, that little poke off the tip of Puig's bat that strolled along in fair territory and sorta froze the fielder. Not sure if that play was connected with scoring, but the team sure came up four leaf clover in this one.

Which is nice. They have been on the short end of the good luck stick so many times this year.

Catching the replay now. Winkers HR was an excellent at bat.

Yep, and an experienced pitcher should know that...Buehler's a classless tool.
