He cries and whines about being lifted for a pinch runner and defense then gets cut down stealing the next day. Today he’s struck out 3 times with the population of Mansfield, OH on the bases.

For those who want to get on Bell about something, putting two RHBs back-to-back in the middle of the lineup against Turnbull (already nicknamed Stern Bull in my head) was a tactical mistake.

Lost in our inability to score more than a run against the loltigers is Bauer's absolute gem.

Here’s where Reds can use Aquino or Ervin with no fear of a new pitcher.

It’s Ervin.

Tigers cannot counter with a righty.

vaticanplum
07-26-2020, 03:07 PM
I have to believe that when the starting pitching is this good, if the offense breaks on the side of good even half the time, we still have a good chance. I'm not signing the season away on a few bad days from Castellanos. Offense is spottier than pitching. If they can pull that together 4-5 days a week the Reds are gliding into the playoffs and then the pitching is a golden ticket. This hasn't been a great couple games to watch but I'm still optimistic and excited.

Of course, I also want the whole season canceled. I'm a Gemini; I contain multitudes.

With the three batter rule I can see Bell taking advantage of lefty righty matchups. Pitching team canít counter the move.

Agree though that pulling Shogo might have been unwise.

The OF defense is now messed up since he also lifted Jankowski.

Playing the percentages is smart with a 162 game schedule as there is enough time for the percentages to even out.

In a 60 game schedule, not enough time for the averages to work out.

In a short season, I want a manager to go with the hot hand or his gut more often. Luck is going to play a big role in who wins regardless.

REDREAD
07-26-2020, 03:22 PM
I thought Dick Williams promised us this year that we would have such a big lead when the starter came out that the bullpen would not be an issue :lol:

Let's hope the bullpen can pull through today, starting 1-2 vs the Tigers is not getting it done.
2-1 is fine.

Galvis played 103 games at short for the Blue Jays last year. Heís been a shortstop over a long career.

He was traded to the Reds later in the season.

Why, that is where they are suppose to throw it when you are getting chase below the zone, or for a CB with a flat flight path so they see FB and swing at balls bouncing about 4 feet in front of the plate
