Is the only reason Jesse Winker, who has been completely lost at the plate the entire season, batting 5th simply because he’s a lefty? The guy has no business being any higher than 7th. I’d think that has to change when Moose is back right? As a side note: very bummed that Moose is still ailing. Big loss.

Small Sample Size for an 162 game season, but I wonder at what point Senzel and Shogo don't swap in the batting order? My initial grumpiness about Bell's handling of Shogo might have been ill advised. He has faced solid pitching thus far in 2020 though.

Senzel OBP .357
Shogo .278

I'm afraid Akiyama may not be everything we were sold. Senzel may be a better choice to lead off....if he stopped running into outs.

And Aquino may be a better choice to play LF (if Castellanos has to play RF).

This pattern with Reds offense has to stop. They get off slowly every year, they start pressing, it gets worse and worse.

By the time they start scoring runs, they’re well behind in the race.

They’ve faced some good pitching, happened last year too, but c’mon, you’re better than this.

Winker was tossed but I don’t see a replacement in the box score. Don’t they have to announce a replacement DH?

They’re just going to toss a bat somewhere in the vicinity of home plate and hope it draws a walk.

Okay, that was a ball. Also, let me preface this by saying I’m all for a robot ump behind the plate.

But Winker whines and complains often about pitches that are clearly strikes, and check swings where he clearly went around. What the hell does he expect? Shut your damn mouth and maybe that’s a ball next time.
I saw Winker do that a good bit in a series in Chattanooga. Apparently he still hasn't learned that he's not helping himself...or his team..out with the kvetching.

With the increased velocity and movement of the pitches, and having to judge the opposite side of the plate they are sitting, and judge the up and down according to each hitters physique, it is a thankless and difficult task. It is a shame the technology is there, and not being used, to call a much more fair game and i'm sure it would reduce a lot of the complaining, bickering, and trying to bait the umpires that is taking so much away from the game.
