Maybe Senzel starts slowly creeping up the lineup. He's looked even better than his numbers suggest, and his numbers are quite good.

Would you rather see Jankowski, or Van Meter???

Reds could use another righty killer. Only hope, for now at least, is that Winker snaps into form.

Mike Moustakas is back in the #Reds lineup today. A great sign after he was hit by a pitch on his forearm yesterday.

Nick Senzel jammed his finger sliding into 2B on one of his doubles yesterday. He's in today's lineup, but he said he's curious to see how it feels today.

Joey Votto has returned to Cincinnati after testing negative for COVID-19, according to a source. #Reds are hopeful he will be cleared to return as early as tonight.

we could be headed for another 7-inning doubleheader day tomorrow. unless they're willing to wait to start this game at 10 pm or so.

course, the weather apps have all been off (even more than usual) due to 'rona, so who knows. but right now, the radar ain't looking promising.

Isn’t the reason obvious? One plays infield the other doesn’t.

Reds have good starting infielders, but they are thinner at the IF positions.

I'm in no way qualified to predict the weather but to me it looks like a lot of pop up showers in random areas. We could possibly see a delay but right now it looks like most of the rain will be North of downtown Cincinnati.

Colon as DH vs. a RH starter? You've got to be kidding.

In 401 PA, he has a grand total of ONE HR to complement a 0.641 OPS.

Dietrich just last year hit 17 HR in the first two months of the season, before he hurt his shoulder. Career 0.761 OPS.

I mean, seriously, who in their right mind makes Colon the DH in any event, against any starter?

Reds
08-03-2020, 06:06 PM
Reading the radar I think we'll see a delay so they don't have to stop the game soon after it starts for a cell moving in

Going to be an interesting decision

I would guess maybe an 8 o'clock start after heavy rain moves through. Then it will lightly rain in the middle innings but it won't be heavy.

You assume correctly. I got into baseball largely through it being on late night tv when i was growing up, fell in love with the sport. The why Reds question is harder to answer. I remember ages ago on the baseball coverage they used local commentators with British studio summary and one segment they did was based on which MLB team a UK viewer should root for based on what English football team they supported and the Reds were paired with Leeds United. I think the reasons were something like traditionally big clubs who've had hard times, loyal fanbases but often eccentric owners" Not sure how true that was but it kind of resonated anyway and I've followed the Reds results as best I can since. Not sure how they worked that out as the default Leeds fan position is that you shouldn't wear, own or support anything red (rivalry with Man Utd and Liverpool) but nevertheless it stuck. Baseball is very, very niche here and most people asked to list baseball teams would list the Yankees maybe Red Sox and then get stuck, so picking a team is hard without family loyalties, local connections etc.
