my god barnhart continues to kill the reds at the plate. can't wait for the tyler stephenson era to begin behind the plate.
It should start tomorrow because there's not one thing that barnhart does well

This offense is basically the same as last year with MM out and ES not hitting. NC performance just replaces ES from last year. We have to get those two back to be successful.

he is just terrible.....he will have a good couple games and cause one to hope, but then it is right back to being a weak terrible hitter.....will be glad when e have a legitimate hitter at catcher

Should be tomorrow with Tyler Stephenson. It wonít be, because Williams is incompetent, but it should be.

* I have not seen every pitch tonight* but I did see the inning where the runner advanced both times on two pitches in the dirt that Barnhart blocked but with a runner on with BH-like speed Iím not sure he had much of a chance throwing him out either times anyway. Again, I may be missing something I didnít see but I donít fault Barnhart for the runner advancing on those pitches.

Nothing special. They’ll play another game tomorrow and the day after that. And next year and the year after that. Don’t let the game affect your mood. Sure, root hard, but, believe it or not, these guys are pros and intensely competitive. I’ve known a few pro athletes in my life and omg were they killer level competitive. You can’t exist in that world without a taste for blood. I think you mistake detachment and cool for they do care. Take my word, they do. And they take this home and work on their game competitive.

And if none of that works, go drink a beer.

Itís a shame Iím almost tired already of watching this train wreck. I was so excited for baseball to start back, and having David Bell as a manager has ruined everything. I know I ran the Wade Miley signing into the ground already, but I still canít believe the Reds was took the bait and drank that kool-aid. Such a waste of money. He had 1 good season with a bunch of big bats in the lineup everyday and we actually paid him that kind of money when it could have been spent on an actual good pitcher. Unreal.

Brad Keller is a better pitcher than Wade Miley, Tyler Mahle, and probably Tejay Antone (who might end up with his own Brad Keller-esque rags to riches story).

As a KC area fan of the Royals as well as the Reds I 'll just say that the Royals youngsters may well surprise people. Unlike the Reds wgo wrap their youngsters in saran wrap the Royals let their kids play and some of em are pretty good. Keller was a castoff no one wanted 2 yearscago the Reds could have had him but passed him on. Better team than given credit for. When the kids mature...soon...the Royals will be looking good

Kingspoint
08-12-2020, 09:37 PM
For those wondering why Miley is pitching today, itís because the Reds want the 4 righties to face Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh has a .855 OPS vs lefties, 4th best in the majors.

Against righties they are at .521, by far the worse in the majors.

By way of comparison, Jankoís lifetime OPS is .630, more than 100 points higher.

Pittsburgh vs. Righties are basically Janko in a slump.

Sure, root hard, but, believe it or not, these guys are pros and intensely competitive. Iíve known a few pro athletes in my life and omg were they killer level competitive. You canít exist in that world without a taste for blood. I think you mistake detachment and cool for they do care. Take my word, they do. And they take this home and work on their game competitive.

And if none of that works, go drink a beer.

tying run at third, go-ahead run at second, one out, opposing team is giving you a run if you can just make contact.

you strike out.

that's a choke any way you cut it. i'm sure you played baseball as many of us did. if you did that, you would go back to the dugout saying you choked. and you'd be right.

If Barnhart swings away you may have nobody on and two outs. That was done to avoid the DP.

Might have pinch hit, but no lefty bats available. Swinging away there was dangerous with Barnhart.
