Cubs loaded up top of the order with their lefty bats. Must think itís a weakness for Antone.

Got out of the first inning ok, well positioned infield defense. Just one run on the cheap homer.

As I type that, there's a 2-run shot! Winker is just raking since that awful start.

The way I saw it play out was....the Ump heard Joey say something from the dugout and walking over to warn him or something....Bell jumped out there to try to ensure Joey did not get tossed. Once he accomplished that, Rizzo baited him and Bell fell for it....which caused the players to come out to back up Bell.

Votto was barking, there was a chance he’d get tossed right there.

Ridiculous that a Votto and Winker were tossed just for approaching the ump.

Votto and Winker need to be aware of the situation though.
Rizzo was already on the field, he's going to be given more slack.
Votto was yelling from the dugout, then came out.
The ump is not going to put up with that, especially after Votto was the one that initially started the yelling after the pitch.
Yes, the Cubs are baby trolls, but the Reds need to be smarter than that.

I agree Bell made a mistake engaging Rizzo but I don’t think I could help myself there either.

He should have stopped pushing it before rizzo even got involved. He made his point. He needed to go sit down and let the game go on. He was a real A-Hole in that entire sequence. I'm not one who thinks the Manager matters much, but Bell keeps finding ways to make himself a negative. He's the worst.

He's actually been trying hard and hustling most of the year though.
Although that drop was inexcusable, it's not like he's the only Red to make a bonehead play.
Overall, CAStellanous has been ok, not great, but ok.

It really is MLB’s and the umps fault first and foremost.

They put in a zero tolerance policy to prevent bench clearing situations. That zero tolerance policy directly resulted in a bench clearing situation.

If the umps are going to issue warning for the ball slipping on Antone, they have to follow up when the same thing happens to the Cubs pitcher. That was handled horribly by the umps.

No. Bell melted down there and took his entire team with him. A Manager doesn't really do much, but keeping his team focused is one of the things he's supposed to do. That whole episode was the exact opposite of that. The whole team lost focus. It cost them two of their starting players and they made several misplays including getting thrown out at 3B to take themselves our of an inning. They had something going before Bell torpedoed it.

Terrible.

Aquino probably is a risky prospect but he has probably the most upside of anyone else. I just don’t see anyone is the organization that has 30 HR potential. Reds have to develop him and he has to be a starter next year.

Castellanos didnít miss that fly ball because heís a poor OF.....he missed it because he had to try to catch it the cool way. I bet he wouldíve used his cover hand had it been deep into a playoff game.

As for Bell protecting Votto....Iím good with that. Pretty much protocol around the league, but 1 question.... when a player is chirping from the dugout and the ump is looking over or making his way that direction, why doesnít the manager go to the PLAYER and calm him down instead of going out onto the field?
