Reds have Gray, Bauer, and Castillo for these next games. Reds are 4-7 at home.

Reds need to win all these three home games against the Pirates. If they remain sub-.500 at home, I fear the season will eventually collapse on them.

I feel like Williams, Krall and Bell are really showing their hand on Alex Blandino. VanMeter has seriously struggled, then they turned to Colon; all the while Blandino is hanging out in Mason.

Mind you VanMeter has had all of 25 PA--and it doesn't sound as if Moustakas will be on the IL for an extended period of time--but it's hard to watch VanMeter accruing starts when he looks so danged bad. We know what Colon is, and it's nothing to get enthused over.

Since JVM hits left handed, I’d figure Colon is there instead of Blandino.

However we cut it, Reds are short on infield depth. Glut of OFers, short of infielders beyond the starters.

I think these next 3 are close to must win games. Would really turn around the season to go 3-0 and then sweep the 2 games against KC. Gotta have it against these weaker teams.

There are only 49 players in Major League history to have a career with 2000 or more hits + 1000 or more walks + 300 or more home runs.

Joey Votto is the closest among all active players not already on that list to join the club. He has the walks but needs 122 hits and 13HR

Of the 49, there are 31 in the Hall of Fame.

Pujols and Cabrera are the only active players who meet the criteria.

It may be as simple as not wanting to screw with the starting rotation at all considering they're on a roll right now.

The offense isn't and shouldn't be dependent on either catcher. The biggest issue is that Suarez isn't Suarez right now.
