I figured Puig would be out again today. I'm interested to see how VanMeter handles being out in LF.

Let's hope that Castillo leads the league in ERA after today...and Davies does not.

Christian Yelich out of #Brewers starting lineup again today, as would be expected after quick turnaround.

Davies should start regressing to his mean soon if not today. His FIP is 3.73 and his SO/9 is actually below his career average suggesting as much.

Yelich out again today...also Braun

Honestly that's kind of an ugly lineup when you have to bat Grandal, Thames and Hiura in the heart of your lineup...

Votto K's

For the 47th time. Thom is so kind to keep count for us.

Kingspoint
05-22-2019, 01:19 PM
Votto was up there long enough to draw 8 throws...5 pitches and 3 pickoff attempts. So, even when he's making an out, he' working hard the Starting Pitcher and letting the rest of the lineup see his throws.

Tom Servo

Reds do not score 3 in the first inning this time.

I somehow didn't notice that Braun is out of the lineup.

Vottos K's to end the inning. Big inning though. 5-0 Reds in the middle of the 2nd.

With the 5-0 lead, Castillo has to guard against losing focus.

43 pitches and 5 runs already for Davies.

Castillo gets to throw with a rare 5-run lead.

Well, Reds bats are done for the day.. 5 hits quite sufficient.. ~David Bell

it's hard to see Votto like this. His timing is off. I'm sure he doesn't really want to talk about it right now, but he's so smart about hitting, I'd love to hear his thoughts about what's happening.

I took a charter bus and am heading to Astoria on a Sunny Day. Stopped and gave the spouse a Green Tea Macha before leaving. Will see one of the best Maritime Museums in the U.S., the Columbia Maritime Museum, and hike up to the Astoria Column with a 150+ mile, 360-degree view of the Pacific Ocean and Cascade Range. Watching this on mlb on the Charter. Not a bad day.

He had almost as many Pitches as Davies after 2 innings but only gave up one run on two hits. He'll get through 5 but not much more at that pace. Looks like the bottom 6 in the order are carrying things today.

An even better question is why did he bloop the throw? He threw it to the cut-off guy, but gave too much time before Iglesias could catch and throw.

Gotta have a manager with enough gravitas to sit Votto.

It's almost impossible to sit a Hofer, especially a 1st-year Manager. It's just not going to happen.

As much as it pains me to say it, he’s not a guaranteed HOFer yet. If he just stepped off a cliff and he’s effectively done, he’s on the outside looking in.

Yeah. Just for reference on that, his HOF monitor score over on baseball reference is 88, and it’s pretty rare for guys to get in under 100. Voters will have to start really highly valuing OBP in the next 20 years if he’s really on the decline now for him to get in. Which is not impossible obviously, but they’re not there yet.

Also hurts his case that he’s never been on a team that’s done anything in the playoffs. And he’s missed a bunch of time in his career.

I’m pretty bummed with the way Votto has been playing myself, but what’s with people complaining about Votto doing that defensive check swing thing that he does, as if it’s something new? He’s literally always done that, it’s partially why he’s been able to foul off so many pitches in the past.

If Votto can put up similar numbers to Baines' between ages 35-40 he will be in the hall of fame. Probably not too many willing to take that bet right now though.

I literally laughed at the idea of him in CF last year just because it seems like if it were a real possibility that he would have been out there already, but I’m happy to look like a fool because it really seems like he might just be able to stick there.

He’s looked pretty good to me, but UZR is tracking him as a negative fielder thus far. Not sure what part of his fielding that’s coming from.

It's somewhat understandable as they've been pitching in so many high leverage spots and come through, and it's human nature to let up a little bit when it looks like you can coast. But they need to figure out how to ignore the scoreboard.
