Bring up a hot young kid and there are so many guys not hitting, it's hard to know which one to sit. I think sitting Votto is the right call. I'd sit him both games.

The Brewers lineup has been added to the original post

REDREAD
08-27-2020, 02:49 PM
Yea, given the fact that the team has done so poorly lately, it's smart to give Votto some rest to clear his head.
It's also smart to give Garcia some playing time. This "on the job training" is probably going to help his development more
than working out at Prasco, even if Garcia is overmatched at the plate (I don't know how he's going to perform). Might as well give Payton some playing time too, to see if he's worth keeping.

With Sonny on the mound, I feel good about our chances to win, no matter what the lineup is :)

I'd also like to see Shogo start the next 15 games, let's see if he can get into some kind of groove or if he's a bust.

Absolutely. Team's going nowhere, and we signed Shogo to a 3 year deal. At the very least, let's find out exactly what we have there.

I'd also love to see them trade Senzel, but I can't see any way that happens before the 31st.

That's what David Bell said, he also said that doesn't mean every inning of every game.

The only change from yesterday's lineup, vs. the same pitcher, is at catcher. With the change today to Casali in the first game, I presume Bell was planning to use Tucker to start last night and tonight, but now with 2 games today, the match-ups with our pitchers and the Milw pitchers, he'd rather start Curt in the 1st game and Tucker in the 2nd game.

Castellanos plays so hard. What a great slide and great hustle.

I'm against head first slides, except to go back to a base, but that slide illustrates one of the few positive points that could be argued in favor of it. That the hands and arms are usually a bit more dexterous in being able to avoid a tag.

Even if they still like Ervin, if he’d clear waivers, some Prasco time would probably help him.

Tough to end a deep slump batting so sporadically.

Might not clear, may be worth the risk of waivers given how badly he’s hitting.

Ironman92
08-27-2020, 07:58 PM
Been watching last couple innings. Looks good. Winker hits it where it is pitched and is our best hitter because of that. Suarez still lost.

I don't see it. As a matter of fact, the Reds defense isn't good, but most of the really bad plays have come at 1B and 2B. The killer V's Votto and VanMeter.

You’ll notice when Cast goes back on the ball, he often has to leap for the catch.

A fleeter RFer would make those catches more readily. Very hard to tell fully on TV without the context of the whole field.

Not saying it’s a disaster but I’m not surprised his UZR is a bit negative.

So, Castellanos looks fine in RF to me. He made a bad play early in the year and cost them a game. He's seemed fine since and actually looks pretty good today.

Yeah, he's fine. A bit clunky but he hustles and has enough speed to recover from any bad angles.

But a bit negative in RF isn't really hurting the team and his bat is pretty darned good. He's fine out there. I'd like him better in LF with Aquino in RF.

It's not really relevant right now, but I think I'd be cool with Curt Casali getting the lion's share of starts at catcher. I don't care if his average sucks, he hits the ball hard and takes a walk and can catch. That's enough for me.

Kc61
08-27-2020, 08:34 PM

But this isn’t the time to use your weaker relievers.

I’d rather use them in clear losses, which Reds do have on occasion.

With the three batter rule, the use of those guys now is really a bad idea.

Just should have used Sims.
