Tougher Angels lineup than that AAA lineup from last night...although no Calhoun. Surprised he's not in the lineup.

I'm really pleased with Aquino so far in replacing Puig's at bats. If We some how swept the Angels then swept the Cubbies, would there be any possibility to get our hopes up for playoffs? Or should I just continue to enjoy this season of being competitive each game and finishing strong for confidence and playing time of these young players?

I do not see the improvement outside Pujols instead of Jared Walsh. The other changes is replacing Calhoun with his backup in RF, and replacing Kevan Smith with his backup @ Catcher.

That looks like a swinging strike to me. The ball is in the catcher's mitt

Nobody was blaming Benavides himself for running out of players, Thom.

It was an indictment on the roster management of The Reds in general and the fact that this repeatedly happens to them this year thanks to the 65 man bullpen that they don't even utilize.

This mix/match strategy with the lineup is growing on me. Caught the end of the Cubs/A’s game last night and announcers were crediting a big part of Oakland’s depth (and success) to finding a lot of ABs for a lot of guys. Makes your pinch hitters much more dangerous and must create some internal competition which I think is good.

Aquino: AAA callup Outfielder hitting well.

Can't believe some said we don't have any Outfielders when I said we had plenty and that's why we should move Puig.

Sort of like 1987, 1990, and 1999, when the Reds had five outfielders who got significant AB's.

1987: Eric Davis, Dave Parker, Kal Daniels, Tracy Jones, Paul O'Neill

1990: Eric Davis, Paul O'Neill, Billy Hatcher, Glenn Braggs, Herm Winningham

1999: Greg Vaughn, Mike Cameron, Dmitri Young, Michael Tucker, Jeffrey Hammonds
