Glad they called up Stephenson.

Probably don't want him facing Darvish as his first start. Might be smart.

I didn't just say that did I?

It's probably some other crazy reason.

Darvish pitching. 62 degrees. Wind blowing in off the lake. Reds will score 8.

Curt Casali, the right-handed half of the platoon, is slashing: .379/.574/.926. Are they going to sit Casali for Stephenson?

José De León, a Puerto Rican, will join Michael Lorenzen in wearing #21 tonight for Roberto Clemente Day. Lorenzen already wears #21 to honor Clemente.

De León on knowing he'd wear #21 today: "I've never been so excited to come to a clubhouse since WBC. I was nervous. I was anxious to get on the bus and get here. It was really emotional, man."

it will be his first time ever wearing #21 because it's a sacred number in Puerto Rico. He hopes MLB retires the number.

Yes, he's the real deal. Cubs signed a ringer in Darvish. For the Reds to have a chance the score has to remain low and at some point get into the Cubs bullpen. Can't afford dumb mistakes in the field and need to capitalize when the Reds have a chance to score.

Barnhart should be benched and let Casali and Stephenson be the catchers. At this point R/L matchups don’t matter. If Stephenson is going to be able to make it in MLB he will have to hit from both sides.

With only 18 games left, the Reds are pretty much in a must win 14 or 15 of those to stand a chance at a Playoff spot. You can thank the great David Bell, Dick Williams, & Nick Krall for that. Personally, I wish all 3 could attend some sort of Tampa Rays seminar on how to operate a baseball franchise. All 3 would benefit greatly. Somehow, not only does Tampa compete every season...but somehow they manage to have the #1 farm system in MLB also. It wouldn’t hurt to ask Billy Beane a few pointers either. Meanwhile, we are just stuck with what we got.
From not having Aquino an everyday starter from day 1, to playing Travis Jokeski, Farmer, Davidson, and the like over him. There are too many mistakes to even keep count.
Let’s see if talent alone can push us this last 18 games. I doubt it, but we can hope.
Let’s get this dumpster fire started!

Today is Roberto Clemente day. My neighbor and good friend Al Oliver played with Clemente on a world title team in 1971. His admiration for Clemente is incredible. He also performed the eulogy for Mrs Clemente. What a great player and great man Clemente was. There has been discussion of retiring number 21 for every team in MLB like they did number 42 with Jackie Robinson. I do not support this.

For the most part we have only had 1 player hitting well in the lineup the whole season. Castellanos for the first few weeks, then Winker for a couple of weeks and Suarez for about 3-4 days. The other 8 were stinking it up when those 3 were hot. Hard to score runs when 8 out of 9 are in a slump.

I mean if I’m a billion dollar baseball franchise, I’d spare the few extra thousand dollars for my broadcast team because it’d be a drop in the bucket and I imagine there are some benefits from actually having them there.

I’m guessing a guy like Welsh gains a bunch of info hanging out with the players in the clubhouse or during batting practice. A good chunk of his stories during the game likely come from such interactions.

I’d pay for broadcasters at the park although the product as is is pretty good. I’ve been amazed at the technology overall during this pandemic. Most of the local sports channel radio station’s personnel are still working from home and you rarely can tell the difference.

I hope these tidbits aren't taken for negativity - I'm finding fun in the stupid stats in a quickly-lost season.

Moustakas's ground-out dropped the team BA to .2098 - it's still a rounded .210, but they need a hit in the next two at bats, starting with Galvis, to prevent an un-rounded .209.

Let Bauer go as far as possible. Use Iglesias FIRST and Bradley LAST. I don't care if Iglesias gets his feelings hurt. If needed use Garrett where the leftys are coming up IF Bauer needs help then Iglesias to Bradley. A complete game is optimal. A back end bullpen with those three may turn out to be money.

I’d guess it’s too difficult to determine the exact moment the fielder has “possession”.

They need a “bright line” test, something that can readily be determined.

So apparently - for timing - they use the moment of the ball’s contact with the mitt. But obviously the fielder must hold onto the catch for the out to be recorded.

He has gone to a swing hard pull every thing swing instead of step and drive the ball into the left field gap. Nope pull it into the shift. If i was the hitting coach before games, setup manequines in a shift and challenge them to hit it the other way to beat the dang shift.

Stats don’t really take into account consistency. Using Winker as an example. He may get hot for 5-6 days and end up at 300 with an OPS of around 1 with 14 HRs. Looking at the stats people will think he had a good year when in fact he was awful for 70% of the year. You’re numbers have to be consistent though out there season there will always be a few bad weeks here and there but our guys are just way at the other end of the spectrum.
