O'Grady has played 1424 minor league innings in CF. The Reds have seen him already.

The fans might want to see him in CF, but the Reds seem more interested in giving Senzel those reps.

If Alex Bregman was a Red and made that "I could hit .330 I just don't want to, I'm swinging for the fence" comment that he made at the All-Star break, Thom Marty and Cowboy would be all over him.

Instead, he's an Astro and they love him. "Just a real nice player" as Thom likes to say.

A week ago others on here were pounding the table asking why he wasn't hitting 3rd.

I don't think he should be batting 3rd but Bell has mostly been good at avoiding small sample noise with lineups, this does feel like a misfire there.

I know complaining about Thom is something anyone could do about anything. I hate to pile on but I could live without the college football talk. He seems to do it a lot. I watch a fair amount of other teams broadcasts on mlb.tv and that doesn’t seem to be common with any other announcers

The problem is without Winker and Suarez the lineup goes from mediocre to lousy. Don’t have the hitters.

Senzel's slow motion collapse hasn't helped, though I'm not too worried about him long term. And then there is the Joey Question.

Winker's effectiveness was definitely underrated around these parts.

Problem with Winker is he’s injury prone. A platoon guy who misses injury time doesn’t have much oppty to contribute.

But his offensive ability against RHP shouldn’t be underrated, he’s a solid hitter against them.

I don't even like that he's being labeled a platoon guy already.

Not every left handed hitter comes to the bigs and immediately mashes lefties. He'll never learn to do it if you decide he's a platoon bat in his 2nd full year, both of which he's missed significant time.

Bell's "trying to win" cred went out the window when he continued to run David Hernandez out there in high leverage situations when The Reds were still in the race, in addition to refusing to demote Iglesias.

I heard more than once he was "showing confidence in his guys", etc etc

Either Winker is a player you think you can build around or not

It doesn’t seem that the FO+Bell see this team as a “here’s our starting 8” kind of team. I think that’s why Galvis is here. JVM is playing all over the field. Senzel can play infield and outfield. Winker has been discussed already. So the idea that a player is a platoon isn’t really what it used to be

Winker isn’t a player to “build around” in the sense of a star who does everything well. Winker simply hits RHP very well. That’s his role, it has value. But it doesn’t mean you have to play him against lefties.

Thankfully Reds have Ervin who does hit lefties.

Bell wasn’t so lucky in the bullpen. He used Hernandez because he didn’t think he had enough good late inning guys. Which he didn’t. And still doesn’t.

And yet, Bell trots him out nearly every game (or so it seems) to allow HR's and stink up the show. Dick Williams needs to do the right thing and just get him off the team or we will see him early and often. David's toys need to be taken away from him.

Well, I guess next season will be interesting. The one year rental of Bauer hopefully motivates the front office to some more big moves. But your point is solid.. Not much fruit came out of that long rebuild -- Gray, Castillo, Suarez and some role players.
