If Votto goes oppo more, suddenly the BABIP gods will be with him. Winker too.

Lefties pulling the ball is death today with the shift, except if you hit a long ball.

Two opposite field hits by Votto today, one a bloop, one a line drive.

Edit: and Jesse pulls a grounder to second for a DP. He’ll adjust, he’s a good hitter, but that’s part of why Votto and Winker aren’t hitting for average this year.

Indeed. Here is one of Danny Murtaugh's memorable quotes:

"Why certainly I'd like to have that fellow who hits a home run every time at bat, who strikes out every opposing batter when he's pitching, who throws strikes to any base or the plate when he's playing outfield and who's always thinking about two innings ahead just what he'll do to baffle the other team. Any manager would want a guy like that playing for him. The only trouble is to get him to put down his cup of beer and come down out of the stands and do those things."

Well yeah, that’s a given. My point was you want your top guys to always at least be a tough out or have productive abs every game, the Teds have not had that this year.
Just look at our opponent today for example: even when Bryant or tizzy are ice cold they are threats.
Senzel:nope
Votto: works pitchers but no power or speed to fear
Puig: just a complete black hole till yesterday

Castillo and Gray are both gonna start on Monday, they said Tuesday is still TBD and might be a bullpen day.


Thanks. One way or the other Reds will need to have a rested pen for four games in three days.

They get a 26th player for the doubleheader, so I figure they will bring up an extra pitcher. They might send VanMeter down and bring up yet another pitcher, giving them a total of 15 for the twinbill.

Correct Ochoa, some people take any criticism of a player or a team as hate and vitriol, or frame it as we are actively pulling for them to fail. When in fact it’s just frustration. A lot of times it is harsh and shortsighted, but sometimes it’s warranted at the time.
