Castillo goes tonight. Winker is DHing while VanMeter is in LF. I like that.

With DH Reds get to use an extra hitter. They chose the LHH off the bench against a RHP. Namely, Van Meter.

When I first came to redszone recently, the first thing I saw was this: The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see... Thanks, wrong verb- I thot, man, I'm gonna like this place.
Big chance tonite, local boy Josh VanMeter- coupla hits hopin hard. Few Fort Wayne IN area boys have made it to the bigs. One not too long ago made it to manager of the Indians. Uh.... can't remember his name (swell indication of me age). OK, looked it up- Eric the Wedge. Has anyone even heard of FWI?

I'm eager to see if Van Meter can play his way into more PT -- perhaps a platoon with Puig.

06-11-2019, 05:25 PM
What's everyone's read on VanMeter? Is he pressing? Is he not getting enough at bats? His OBP is pretty good but there's a lack of pop with his bat. Is this going to be a short stay?

EDIT: Is he really only 5'11" 165? He looks much thicker.

I like Van Meter's swing, no major, glaring hole -- unlike some right hand hitting Reds.

I think hes just not getting enough consistent AB's. Guys never been a part time player and has done extremely well as a PH considering.

Votto currently has twice as many doubles as Paul Goldschmidt.

He also has a triple, which Goldschmidt does not have.

I mean it's not like they're playing him every day or they can't easily send him back down again. I don't see any overreaction, they're giving him a chance off the bench.

sorry, posted before i was done with my post. i edited it. i'd prefer a guy like philip ervin over vanmeter, even against a righty. it seems as if one hot month got the reds thinking that vanmeter is better than a guy like ervin. i do not think he's better than ervin. (not that ervin is great or anything.)

Ervin might be a bit better at the moment but I think the difference between them is fairly negligible over the long run, and VanMeter plays more positions.

There's a ton of other stuff you can point to for him being an unlikable weirdo but I just remembered that Bauer voluntarily said all of this out loud during the offseason:


When Bauer meets a potential romantic partner, he outlines for her the parameters of any possible relationship on their very first date. ďI have three rules,Ē he says. ďOne: no feelings. As soon as I sense youíre developing feelings, Iím going to cut it off, because Iím not interested in a relationship and Iím emotionally unavailable. Two: no social media posts about me while weíre together, because private life stays private. Three: I sleep with other people. Iím going to continue to sleep with other people. If youíre not O.K. with that, we wonít sleep together, and thatís perfectly fine. We can just be perfectly polite platonic friends.Ē

The idea that a guy like Trevor Bauer allegedly has multiple partners at the same time just goes to show you, being a professional athlete will make women overlook literally everything else about you.

that was just a really bad at-bat from senzel (even though i love him). missed a hanger that he fouled off. then did the one thing you cannot do in that situation which is ground into a double play, and it was as weak as possibly could be.

still, would divorce my wife and marry him.

There is a difference between a bad AB and a bad outcome. The outcome sucked but it wasnt a bad AB vs a guy who absolutely eats up righties.

Somehow this offense always manages the worst possible outcome. Had to think a DP there was super unlikely but go figure.

It's difficult because we see it seemingly all the time. But Bauer did go from missing with almost everything to bearing down and pitching pretty well to Senzel. Just one of those things. You'll lose most battles at the plate. Just seems like this team loses more than most.
