Reds offense just non-existant. Even when Moustakas returns, they will still have problems putting hits together. Makes pretty boring baseball.
Kind of a baseball wide problem, but the Reds are indeed down there with the worst of 'em.

Is bringing in a so-so reliever to replace starter with 2 outs good strategy with the new rules? Seems like it to me. Now Jones can start the 8th and if he's ineffective, we don't have to stick with him through 3 batters. Of course, if Jones doesn't start the 8th, at least they might have seen enough that they don't want to bother letting him pitch to another batter.

I think the only time you bunt is when the hitter is a great bunter and a terrible hitter and you are actually bunting for a base hit, taking the opposition by surprise.

The real alternative was to pinch hit for Barnhart in that spot. Davidson, maybe. Not much bench remained though.

Brantley says Winker is seeing the ball so well he is taking pitches as they come out of pitcher's hand!

This time he was right in taking, and the ump was in error on his called strike 3 on the fastball.

One can bunt in the other direction. Requires a slight body turn.

By avoiding the DP, Bell opened the door to a bases loaded one out situation.

But he should have hit for Colon.

great win, still annoyed we're not cruising to a sweep though. Will be interesting to see if Kumar Rocker turns out to be an adequate reward for the Pirates being so lousy.

Line-up with 7 righties, a switch hitter, and Winker?

Likely right.

Davidson at DH, Wink in left, Farmer at 2b and Casali at C.

Glad to see him finally living up to the hype. I think his low-key interview was he was not thrilled with being a DH, but just my opinion.

Or you give Joey a day off, put Davidson at 1st, Winker at DH, and Ervin in left.

Would be nice if Ervin started showing any pulse.

Sheldon tweeted about it but something was up with Senzel after the game. He was “visibly upset.”

Yes they said the coach had to walk him off the field and he threw his glove on the dugout. Bell said it was an internal personal issue that would be addressed. Doesnít sound good.

Possibly angry about the unwillingness of Bell to appeal the out call on Senzel's caught stealing? Replay was very close... he may have been safe, but Bell didn't even appeal. Is Senzel greenlighted to go on his own? Did Bell not appeal because he didn't support Senzel's steal attempt??

He wasn't thrown out on a steal attempt it was a throw from RF

They should send him away like they did Winker after his slow start...

Oh, wait.
