I am not anti-Bell by any means, but I don't get the infatuation with Davidson.

I'd rather get Aquino and Senzel. those AB's in the top half of tge lineup. Not because I am sold on Aquino, but because Davidson just isn't good.

I like the Reds’ lefty hitting group in the starting lineup, but not their lefty bench so much.

Lot of righty power including the bench. May thin out when (if) rosters cut down.

PuffyPig
08-02-2020, 05:39 PM
Against a LH pitcher, Davidson will give a very credible performance.

That is the one singular thing he can do.

With Votto out, the choice was likely him or Van Meter vs. The LH pitcher. He was an automatic in the lineup.

Honestly man, I’m not like some people who think Aquino is the answer to our problems, but it is extremely weird how they’ve basically just decided he’s a complete scrub. He did show SOME potential last August, at least enough that he should be able to be above Christian Colon in the lineup. I have no idea where they’re coming from how they’re using him now.

It was strange. Both hit lefties better, but I would have thought that replacing Ervin vs the RH pitcher with the better fielding and LH hitter Akiyama was automatic.

With Winker really scuffling anyway, Iím not sure if he was even a better bet in this situation.

I think Bell may have learned his lesson about using his bench too early. But IMO Aquino has more potential to hit righties. And more potential to hit one out. I see more upside with AA than Ervin.

Agree. And having Winker face a lefty later will be useless.

Akiyama will be decent vs. Lefties.

If he was going to make just one switch, he clearly made the wrong one.

I see that. He’s a gifted OBP man, Winker. But if you can’t field, run or hit lefties, AND a slow starter, kind of narrows the positive impact. Especially in a short season.

Time for Jesse to get going, especially with Votto and possibly Moose out among LHH.

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.
