Other than Barnhardt yet again, I'm ok with this lineup. 8th seems like the right spot for Shogo until he gets more consistent.

I think Shogo makes more sense in the 9 hole over Tucker in the rare case one of them reach base ahead of Votto.

I'm not surprised Casali isn't in the lineup. Dude took a heater flush on a cross up. I thought he broke his hand or wrist. Dude caught the rest of the game and was a bright spot at the plate. Quickly becoming one of my favorite Reds. He needs a nickname. Anyone with any ideas?

I do think they'll score some runs tonight, Hudson and Kim were tough matchups. Now whether our starter can avoid being lit up for the 4th straight day, that is the real question...

Do you want your two slowest base runners nest to each other in the order, or split up? With Shogo 8th, neither Joey or Tucker will be ahead of him to slow his advance.

I’d put AA in the lineup instead of Shogo. I don’t care about righty vs. lefty. The bottom line is AA might hit one over the fence and Shogo might hit one out of the infield.

I know they don't want to acknowledge that they blew $21MM on the guy, but my Magic 8-Ball says they're never gonna be this close to relevant again.

As such, it might behoove them to play someone who could possibly contribute. But that's just me.

Mahle a fly ball pitcher, everything in the air.

Maybe can get away with it when he’s missing more bats. Not so far tonight.

Hope he settles in. Maybe over time will throw more ground balls.

Haven't listened to a radio broadcast in a while and with Brantley doing tv the last three nights, I'm reminded of how annoying he can be. Seems to constantly fill the air with observations that he thinks are somehow super insightful, but are really rather obvious. I so prefer Welsh and his more laid back style.

I'm still living in the past. Just had the thought well our catcher is up they'll probably walk him so they can face the pitcher and get out of the inning

While I agree that’s why they haven’t done it. To me when the writing is on the wall you need to make a change. Heck, the padres who are actually winning just replaced both of there catchers at the deadline.

Starting the season with Barnhart and Casali platooning was the smart move, they both have a long history of being solid MLB catchers. But now is time to give Stephenson playing time to help him develop for next year.

That’s basically separates a #5 starter from a #1 starter. They both pitch well most of the time. The #5 just makes more turd pitches over the course of a game.

I don't see any way they won't give up on Barnhart at the end of the year if this continues. Barnhart's 2020 OPS is 100 lower than Billy Hamilton's career OPS and it'll only cost $5 million to dump him.

If they think Stephenson is the long term solution at catcher I think you keep Casali as a backup and let TS hit against both righties and lefties. I don’t really see a need for TB.

Seaver has been suffering from dementia for awhile now, so this may be a blessing. Still horrible sad news. He was one of my childhood hero’s. I tried so hard to make my knee dirty while pitching but never had the drive he did.

When everything was shut down earlier this year Fox Sports Ohio played Seaver’s 1977 no hitter with the audio synced up to Marty and Joe’s call. It was great to watch they should run that again

It's not a blessing. Took care of my Mom fulltime for the last 8 years and she had Alzheimer's the last 12. She died two months ago from a stroke she had while I was showering her, but earlier in the day she was still trying to read from a picture book of Minnesota she liked and we had some moments of love and kindness together even on the last day. If she got thrown into a care facility like most children do, then yes, it would be a blessing as those places, all of them, are horrible to the mental and physical health of those with Alzheimer's. They are chambers of horrors for them. Don't know if Seaver's children took care of him or threw him into a facility, but they said he passed away at home.

Seaver died from COVID. That was unnecessary.

Need balance at the plate, agree. Really odd, but the K was on a called strike three, so.

Maybe if you swing at strikes you have a chance to get a hit. Not sure what theory Alan Zinter teaches, but it doesn't seem to be working.

Worst trend in baseball. Do they teach 5 year olds in t-ball to just stand next to the tee 4 times and then take first base? No. You gotta swing at anything close with 2 strikes.

What was the point of bringing Garcia up? If we’re still trying to win and I guess we are since we traded on Monday why play him? Galvis is a better hitter than him today? If we’re trying to develop young guys in a playoff run why not bring up TS? It makes no sense.
