Gonna be a tough one, Bieber hasn't given up a run yet this year. Insane 27 strikeouts to 1 walk ratio in just two starts.

Some of us liked him as a trade target for the Reds a few years back, others on here didn't want to trade major league talent for "a minor leaguer" :redface:

To be fair, if the Reds had traded for him and took over his development, he’d probably be in our bullpen struggling to record 3 outs every 4 days.

I dont think Mahle is scared of any of them, i just think he has no command of his pitches (fastball mostly). Bell just needs to have already realized this and have him on a super short leash. If Mahle is able to get you through 5 innings, you yank him.

When I was nine I was just getting into baseball. My team had won the World Series the prior year.

I was talking about the World Series with my much older cousin when she said "They are doing pretty well again this year too!"

My response was "Nope. Its all over. They lost to San Diego last night. San Diego! No way can they win the series again if they lose games to the Padres."

The month was May and the year was 1976.

Thankfully that cousin sat me down and explained how baseball has many ebbs and flows and the key is to back your team through them all. Thanks to her I was able to fully enjoy the greatest of seasons without constantly trying to identify/predict reasons for possible failure.

I think about that conversation often when I read these game threads.

For all the grumbles about the Reds offense... by OPS Lindor and Santana would rank 8th and 11th on the Reds... both behind Freddie Galvis, for example.

I think the Reds are going to need 6-7 quality starting pitchers this year anyway, given the short prep time and COVID fears. Pumped for Mahle but his control has been all over the place tonight and a better offense probably would have taken better advantage.

Of course, events overtook things. But I’m glad Mahle isn’t off roster “stretching out” and “being ready”. Some wanted him at AAA for that purpose.

When a talented guy is just about ready, let him advance. Even if his role is less than full time starter. The last stage of development is in the big leagues.

I would lock him up to a series of 1,000,000 one day team options so we can fire him after every loss and rehire him after every win.

I believe that’s the only way to keep many posters here happy.

We should do the same with Bell.
