Is there really nobody from the dfa pool, prasco park crowd, or free agent scrap heap that can provide more pop from 2B than Christian Colon or Kyle Farmer? Has Gennett fallen that far off in one season? I'm pretty sure he's a free agent. How about giving Blandino an opportunity and sending down the totally useless Josh Vanmeter? Or moving Senzel back to 2B for a week to cover and ....gasp...actually play Akiyama for a few days?

Sure, agree. But if Ervin’s not going to play against lefties he doesn’t have much role.

And the only way he can get going against lefties is to face them. But maybe it’s just for this game and will play next time.

It hasn't appeared so this year.

BAPIP is. .415 against him this year, his FIP 1.79 and xFIP is 2.22. He has a HR/FB rate of 9.1 vs. a career of 17..5 %

He has a 0.8 War over 3 starts which would equate to a WAR of 8.5 over 32 starts.

All small sample sizes, but heís likely fine.

Wrong. Making an out is not a "choke" . Having a decent at bat and making contact is not a "choke." Swinging at a pitch out of the strike zoan after fouling off a cripple down the pipe with a runner on 3rd and less than two outs-- well I don't use the word "choke" but that deserves criticism.

Players make outs all the time, hitting against MLB pitchers is not easy.

I expect players seldom choke, even those they often have what looks like bad ABís.

Even a runner on third with less than two outs scores only about 50% of the time.

Players make outs all the time, hitting against MLB pitchers is not easy.

I expect players seldom choke, even those they often have what looks like bad AB’s.

Even a runner on third with less than two outs scores only about 50% of the time.

Stellar Keystone double-play to get out of the inning with only one run(would have been no runs without the 3rd error of the game the batter before. That stops Castiilo's pitch count bleeding at 72 thru 4 innings. May allow Castillo to get into the 6th inning. Bullpen critical again tonight.

Yes, in fact theyíve scored 4 more runs that the light hitting Reds in one more game. Which actually means they have scored fractionally less per game than those light hitting Reds.

Oh, and the Royals BAPIP is .071 ahead of the Reds.

Put Suarez in a 1-2 count on a pitch 4 inches above the strike zone and you force him to swing at a 1-2 pitch low out of the strike zone to protect the plate. He's going to make an out 9 out of 10 times. Call the pitch correctly a ball and it's now a 2-1 count and he can now let that low one go and be selective to wait for a pitch in the zone and he's a different hitter.

Doesn't MLB have performance reviews for the Umps? The players have to perform well to keep their jobs. The rest of us in the real world have to perform in our jobs or face consequences. I don't understand why the league doesn't hold umpires more accountable. Mistakes here are one thing. We all make them.

I regret it already. Bad move to pull your hottest hitter in a fairly close game with a bullpen you can't completely trust. Runner on 2nd or 3rd and no outs, maybe you put Jankowski in with the top of the lineup coming up. But we had 1 out with Casali and Colon hitting and a runner only on 1st.

It’s really not a tough call. Neither is JVM for Davidson. If those moves are made in a close game they shouldn’t happen before the 8th inning.
