Shogo sitting against a lefty. Davidson at DH and Ervin leading off instead of Senzel. Who's ready to fire Bell? ;)

At least Jankowski isn't playing.

At least the two Nicks are separated in the lineup though with no Nick in the Tigers pen they would not be particularly vulnerable being back to back. Tiger pitchers include a Beau, Buck, and a Dario.

Welcome back baseball! Everyone needs this. I watched a little of the Nats game last night and it just felt good to have some normalcy. Maybe by '21 the fans can actually attend,have a hot dog and beverage of their choice and just have a good time out. We will never take all of this for granted again.

Check his splits vs lefties and heís the obvious choice. Who would you have in his place? Close to .900 OPS last year.

Likely the best lineup vs. The lefty.

Janko bats LH, why would he be even considered.

The Reds have spectacular depth for matchups, the need to exploit that.

The Reds are well set up for matchups. My only concern is that matchups work best over a long season, giving the numbers a chance to average out over hot and cold streaks. A season this short, they may not work out as well as they would over a long season.

That said, the best move is still to stick with the matchups and just hope they work out.

Start of 2020 Spring Training: Where are Winker, Senzel, Shogo, Castellanos, and Aquino going to play??

Delayed start of 2020 season: Winker, Shogo, and Aquino don't crack the opening day lineup.

The Janko remark was a reference to my disdain for him even being on the roster. They don't really need a 3rd CF who doesn't really do anything else better than guys left off. At least they didn't add a fourth catcher today.

Maybe Davidson will mostly be used for the Tiger games started by Boyd. That is one advantage of the taxi squad.

Davidson is on the roster for just this reason.

And you never use Farmer at DH as you may need to use him in the field later at either SS or C.

Well, your implication was that there was some strange choices or surprises in the lineup.

This is a sound and pretty obvious lineup vs. Boyd.

Youíd rather see Winker against the lefty?

Iíd also rather have Aquino in the lineup than Ervin for that matter, too. Genuinely donít understand what that roster move is about. I would much rather see what they have in Aquino than waste a relatively meaningless season on giving Ervin PAs.

Ervin mashes left handers. He has nothing left to prove there. Davidson instead of Aquino Is the puzzling move.

Probably Davidson has some jitters today. Give him time. Not that I can explain why he made it over Aquino. Maybe Reds just refused to have another OFer and preferred a back up at first. Not too convincing given what Aquino showed last year.
