Senzel destroys a ball...and it takes a defensive gem in CF to get him out. Advances Casali though.

Man, Senzel needs to yell at his Jobu statue or something.

Not sure its all Bell. The Reds went out and got two starting OF in the winter and by signing Moose ensured that Senzel will stay an OF as well. Those moves essentially pushed Aquino to the side. Bell didn't make those moves. If not for the DH all of a sudden, Winker and Ervin wouldn't really have a role either.
True, but Akiyama hasn't really set the league on fire to this point. Not to mention Winker and Ervin.

No, it’s not cheap by human standards.

But by MLB shutout standards a 7 IP shutout vs the 2020 Tigers at Comerica is about as cheap as it gets. Looks like his pitch count will hold him back but with Bauer you never know.

But Bauer has had to battle without particularly good command.

Likely attributable to having to warm up yesterday.

Because Bell being who he is benching Aquino for Winker after one AB Winker will now have a horrible matchup with Soto later in the game. He just simply doesn't get it. He did however let Ervin and his .077 avg go righty-righty in the same inning. Bold strategy cotton.

Well I called that but Winker got bailed out. Bell still sucks though.

I mean Ervin has positional versatility and good major league splits over 3 seasons, 500 at bats.

Like we are talking bench players here. Sure you can find another guy.

But when that guy has a bad 14 at bats do you dump him too?

Well in normal times they could go to AAA to get straight and hopefully come back up. But with the limited amount of games it's awfully tough seeing bench guys batting .000 getting regular ABs. I also don't think he's all that versatile in the OF, though I guess compared to Winker and Castellanos he is.

97 wRC+ for his career, usually via favorable splits it seems (I could be wrong).

Usually you want a OF platoon guy to be above average with the bat.

I donít care what his pitch count is. Heís retired 10 straight....you know what your getting in the 7th from Him way more than any pitcher that might come in from the pen.

I also don't think he's all that versatile in the OF, though I guess compared to Winker and Castellanos he is.

I’d have gone with Aquino and Jankowski as the bench OFers in a normal five OFer set. Would have traded Ervin.

I think Aquino has more upside and is a more dangerous hitter. And a good fielder in RF.

If you don’t want a Jankowski type I’d have looked for another lefty OF bat.

At this moment with thirty man rosters Reds can accommodate them all, although a lefty bat might be a better fit.

Give the Reds credit on Colon. They pick up a million of these AAAA types. Yet they saw enough in him to hold him another year and put him on roster. Good call.

With how much of a good clubhouse the Reds reportedly have, I'm hoping that sways Castellanos out of that opt-out.

Christian Colon is the greatest ballplayer to ever live.

Thom has also informed us that he is the greatest human being as well.

Like where does he come up with these takes?

I’ll guess he’s coming out to pitch the seventh.

The funny thing is Jankowski looks nothing like Arroyo up close but that hair and body type are a dead ringer for him from far away.

I was more likely to leave Bauer in as I felt it represented our best chance to win.

I might now take him out so as to not tire him out for a possible Thursday start.

Short season and so much uncertainty after this year going into the CBA year tells me free agents won't make much next year. I think Mookie signed for way below what he is worth.

This was a good example of Bellís overmanaging.

Taking Aquino out so early meant using Winker and then Jankowski as DH and resulted in Janskowsi up in a key late inning situation. Leaving Aquino in there would have had Aquino up then.

I’d argue the opposite. You have the better defender in there and your lead only increased.

And, further, Jankowski hit a solid liner that happened to be caught.

People second guess defensive replacements when you need the bat. Reds didn’t.

Jankowski was the DH. This was not a defensive replacement.

Need to take a lesson from Detroit. What does the underdog usually try to do in basketball and football? Shorten the game! They did that to perfection, moving yesterday to afternoon when it was going to rain then postponed it in the last few minutes, then getting 2 seven inning games today. But to no avail, Reds won 2 and only used 4 pitchers total and gave up no earned runs!

Since many were writing off the Reds after 7 games, whatís the harm in doing the opposite after 9 games?
