Not having checked, I have to assume a tough leftie is on the mound for Milwaukee. Is Aquino still with the MLB club or did he get to go to Prasco?

Edit: Brewers starter is LHP Eric Lauer
https://www.mlb.com/player/eric-lauer-641778?stats=bvp-r-pitching-mlb&year=2018

Edit 2: each of the last 2 seasons, LHB's had a higher BA against Lauer than RHBs. Last year the dif was .331 vs .247! I have no idea how much his home park being San Diego effected that.

I just can’t stop looking at that lineup. This is supposed to be a team that’s expected to compete, and career minor leaguer Matt Davidson is batting cleanup. Not even the Marlins or Pirates would do that.

This is the kind of lineup only a man with absolutely no pressure whatsoever can dream up.

With MM out and nobody hitting I don’t understand how you can take Votto out of the lineup. I haven’t heard anything about him being hurt.

I feel like the Reds are playing an elaborate prank on us, trying to get our hopes up only to dash them, but, somewhere along the way, the starting pitchers got in too deep on the con and are now going rogue and playing great against orders. Subsequently, Bell and all the offensive players now have to work harder to keep the heist of our trust and attention going.

I think some of these guys need mental breaks, too. Travel these days is stressful. The offense has been pressing. I don't know how you complain about this lineup after watching the last 4 games. But yeah, get Aquino back on the team. It's borderline criminal.

Any word on Moustakas?

08-07-2020, 04:47 PM
I can understand the all righty lineup against a lefty. DH is lefty Winker, however.

DH could have been Votto, or Galvis (not as good against LHP) but I guess those two are being rested. Or Shogo, don’t know how he hits lefties. Or LHH Jankoski or Barnhart, unlikely candidates.

Which leaves Winker as DH against lefty, ok, give it a try for one game.

Mitri
08-07-2020, 04:50 PM
My guess is Jesse feels like he's close. He's had some good at bats the last few games, and pleaded to get a chance vs. a LHP.

I get the “mental break” part of the equation, but can’t stand the thought of a (on paper) negligibly competitive lineup to start off the series against a divisional rival. Especially with Bauer pitching. Didn’t we do this to him last start? Any chance that takes a mental toll on Bauer, going up twice in a row with a meh lineup backing you up? It paid off last time if I’m remembering correctly, but I’m just not feeling it tonight.

Maybe I’ll watch Knives Out with the wife. She keeps telling me she wants to see it. It’s free on Amazon, so this is as good a time as ever I suppose.

I guess he could have used Votto as the DH tonight. Given him a partial rest. He’s better against LHP than Winker normally. Agree Bell may think Jesse is getting hot.

Maybe Bell will explain that one wrinkle. Otherwise it’s just righties againt a lefty starting pitcher, nothing that unusual or exciting.

Yes, and this is a game that has playoff implications too.
Brewers are ahead of us in the standings, not by much, but still ahead.
Bell is not managing this like a 60 game sprint at all.
At least get the team above 500 before you start to relax and give the bench players so much playing time.

Wonderful Monds
08-07-2020, 04:56 PM
There is the thing mentioned earlier in the thread about lefties hitting this guy better than righties, so thatís good for Winker, but if that were Bellís rationale I donít think he wouldíve stacked the lineup with right handers

Winker hits like .0000075 against lefties. You find a way to get that bat in the lineup.

As for Davidson, he’s probably just being kept limber in betwixt relief appearances.

This is not Votto's fault, of course, it's on Bell.
After tonight, the Reds will have played 14 games. Votto has only been in 11 of them.
Unless Votto has some kind of injury, he does not need the rest. Injury is the only excuse not to play him.

David Bell said both Votto and Galvis are healthy but given travel and a lefty to start for Milwaukee, the decision was to go with this lineup.

mth123
08-07-2020, 07:05 PM
Shaking things up I guess. Shogo hasn't hit at all, so he's not really a big loss with a lefty pitching. Casali always plays against a LH. Farmer is a better choice against a LHP than Galvis and may just be a better defender. Moose is hurt, so Colon plays. Winker had two hits with a double last night, so leave him in and see if he gets on a roll. Not a big Davidson fan, but I guess that's the shaking things up part of it.

Could be worse. Jankowski could be playing CF (or Lorenzen).

Career minor leaguer Matt Davidson, batting 4th in tonight’s playoff contending lineup, hits a huge 3-run homer. He came in to tonight with a career -0.2 WAR and a 96 OPS+. But he delivered when we needed it. People like me love being proven wrong.

David Bell is a genius.

2020 isn’t a year, it’s some kind of drug we’re all tripping on.

Winker hits like .0000075 against lefties. You find a way to get that bat in the lineup.

As for Davidson, heís probably just being kept limber in betwixt relief appearances.

I did not think it was an error in real time....but on replay, I thought they could have went either way. In a way, he got his glove on it so cleanly (which may have been a little lucky), it made it a possible error. If the same play happens and the ball simply does not hit in the palm of his glove, no chance it is an error.
