That grand slam was a function of the three batter rule. If that rule wasn't in effect, Castellanos would have faced a right handed pitcher and been less likely to hit the home run.

This is the Reds I want to see. Play your starters when you can, don't sit players who are better, and try not to forget there is no double switch this year. (I know Moose and Senzell weren't available, but Shogo was.)

I know it's not traditional.

But I don't miss seeing pitchers weakly flail away like they selected a fan from the crowd.

And I'm really ok with the death of the specialist role and constant commercial breaks.

Call me weird, but I enjoy seeing players play more and managers manage less.

When you’re scuffling and you have a night like this, you don’t let up, it’s hammer down so the team can be rejuvenated.

Now it’s just disappointing because no matter how well your starter does, no matter how great your offense is, they know that bullpen gate opens it probably won’t be enough.

That’s not a winning atmosphere. That’s all on David Bell. Period.

Listen to that Chicago dugout again. They think they're winning this. They may be right.

The 3 batter 1 inning rule is gonna be rough with the uncertainty we bring out of the pen each night. That's why I'd rather keep a guy in there for 2 if he has good stuff that night.

The trade for him is going to end up one of the greatest Reds trades of all time. If it isn't already.

Anytime you can trade almost nothing for an ace it's a great, great trade. So I'd say it could be up there with the Parker(who was about finished) for Rijo trade.

You do have to wonder how many of these guys are leftovers from the one batter rule and benefit from pitching to a starter occasionally. Watching this series is like a prime example against baseball expansion if two of the predicted top teams have dudes that can't throw strikes

I don’t think Bell did anything so terrible except using Brooks Raley with a lead. And it was nine runs.

The other moves worked out ok.

He’s a tinkerer, but I’m not too upset about pinch running in that spot. Moose’s first game back from illness, you want some speed, you’re trying to get back to 5 runs up.

I see the other side of the argument, but it’s ok.

I think with the new 3 batter rule, we will see an increase in scoring in the middle innings, especially the 6th and 7th. I’d love to see the stats comparing this years middle innings with previous years.

And, Gray was dealing. At 92 pitches he deserved the opportunity to finish the inning. I definitely liked his chances of getting out of the 7th a billion times more than anyone they could’ve brought in there. Bell learns nothing from his mistakes.
