Whatís wrong with Senzel?

What’s wrong with Senzel?

Per Bobby Nightingale

Senzel will get a day off after starting seven of the team's past eight games. He's struggled a bit in that stretch, collecting four hits in 29 at-bats. Phillip Ervin will enter the lineup in his place and bat eighth.

And yet, Bell relentlessly continues to play Suarez day after day after day. He's struggling at the plate, and has been in need of a rest.

MLB decreed that all clubs were to wear the #45 patch for Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs. (I think it should have been on a white patch on the Reds' uniforms.)

Looking to the future we’ve got to get some players with more power. Senzel, Winker, Ervin and VM are all decent players but none of them are power hitters. With catcher, 2B, SS and 1B providing no real power either we need some of their guys to hit some HRs. Galvis looks like he may hit 20 or more next year so that will help. Still need one or two more.

I think it's been a series of nails in the coffin for a while now.


Every time they would claw to within 2 or 3 games of .500 and immediately fall on their face and lose the next 4 out of 6 or whatever, each time a nail in the coffin.

But last night? Yea, probably the last one. Hope they don't totally collapse and fall back to last place because that would be a little more than I could handle.

It's time to start tanking for draft picks...this years class is loaded.

I thought we kind of already started that back in April

Well maybe we will at least get a run from Aquino tonight, That'll be nice at least.

Heís the man in charge. Itís his team and he makes all of the decisions. Itís his fault.

I'm no fan of David Bell but with this offense sleepwalking the majority of the season and a bullpen full of gas cans, I really doubt the results with Larkin would have been better.


I'd love to have someone better than David Bell (although I'm not convinced Larkin would be that guy and it could have disastrous potential) but if they don't fix the offense and bullpen it won't even begin to matter.

Do you really think the offense would have that bad in the first half with Larkin? Do you really think Larkin would have torched the bullpen? No way.

He seems like an alright baseball guy but I’ve never seen anyone get it wrong most of the time. It just seems like if he leaves the starter in for the 6th he gets shelled and if he goes to the pen in the 6th they give up runs. The guy has probably never won a coin toss.

No idea on the bullpen torching but the offense? Unless you're saying Turner Ward is the culprit and he's Bell's guy and wouldn't have been here if it was Larkin, I don't know how you can say they would have magically hit better.

I donít know if Larkin would be any better but Your point is valid. Just look at our inability to put the ball in play and score a runner from third with less than two outs. Weíd probably be close to a WC spot if we could do that. Just look at last night.

Dusty has won and gone to the playoffs everywhere he managed, including the Nationals, where he won 95 and 97 games both years he managed.

He is the only manager in the last 24 years to take Reds to the post season. Whatever comments he has made, I’d easily ignore them if he came back and was just as successful his second time as Reds manager.
