Well I had three weeks booked off work to go to Greece on a family holiday but that was re-arranged due to Covid. We're in Wales for a short stay-cation instead but my consolation is being able to get a good number of live games in...Obviously it would be more of a consolation if we weren't rubbish..but it's better than watching highlights I guess!!

That could be it but a loose bodies shoulder surgery doesn't really explain being this bad. I hate to say it but I wonder if he just kind of mentally/physically packed it in when the first few months of the season were called off. Whatever it is, the Reds can't win without his bat.

With Suarez not hitting, they really need a clean-up hitter. Shogo can't do that but Aquino can. Then Moose and Senzel hit 5 and 6. Take the pressure off Suarez and hit him 7th.

He'd be the 4th OF. I'm not convinced he'll hit a lot. He's making a jump from a lesser league and entering his decline years. I keep thinking of that guy Shinjo who used to play for the Mets. That's the kind of career I expect from Shogo. That's still a solid player any team could use.

I have no idea how Aquino is performing in camp right now. Teams obviously adjusted to him after learning a little bit and he failed to adjust. I think it's fair to assume that if Aquino was putting on a show right now, he'd be on the roster.

Dietrich off to a nice start. And "pledging to bring energy" to his new club.


As first impressions go: Um, Wow. Dietrich, who pledged to bring energy to the club, helped the Rangers rally from a four-run deficit to a 7-4 win to close out the homestand. He had three hits, was hit by a pitch, stole a base, created the club’s first run and started the five-run, eighth-inning rally.

Just seems odd to me that fans tolerate inconsistecy by other players. Everyone expected Castellanos to cool down, and he has. Jay Bruce would get red hot, then cool off. It’s common.

I don't have that confidence. The Reds acquired 3 OF in Castellanos, Shogo and Jankowski along with Moose who relegated Senzel to the OF for good. I think the Reds planned for Aquino to be off the roster this year while they waited to see what happens with Castellanos and Senzel's return from Injury. I don't think anything he does will change any minds. They set this in stone. I'm glad they acquired three of those four guys anyway, but the Aquino treatment makes no sense at all IMO.

I think the Reds planned for Aquino to be off the roster this year while they waited to see what happens with Castellanos and Senzel's return from Injury. I don't think anything he does will change any minds. They set this in stone. I'm glad they acquired three of those four guys anyway, but the Aquino treatment makes no sense at all IMO.

If he was hitting the ball in the spring like he did last August, he'd be in Cincinnati instead of Ervin IMO. At worst, he'd probably be platooning with Winker until one of them got hot.

The bad thing is that we have no idea what Aquino is doing right now. It would be a lot easier to stomach if he was in AAA struggling to hit the baseball.

Winker can hit. There never should have been any doubt about that. And the DH helps him find a spot in the lineup. He should be fun to watch rake over the next few years.
