Of course Bell takes away our ability to both praise Tyler Stephenson and use the name Bock.

No. This is absurd. Kid just hit a walk off homer 20 minutes ago and Bell shows him the bench in game 2 of a DH.

Absolutely stupid beyond belief stuff here.

While I'd generally agree, how much experience does he have calling a game with Disco on the mound?

I bet Casali has a lot more.

I’m sure Casali was told much earlier that he was catching Game 2.

You don’t just change that because Stephenson hit a home run.

Stephenson can start tomorrow.

RedTeamGo!
09-14-2020, 07:13 PM
I’m sure he has enough.

Kid just had the biggest hit of the year 20 minutes ago and is clearly a star in the making. Better sit him. I mean, I can’t with this. It’s insanity.

So you’d tell Casali, who expects to be starting, who’s got around an .850 OPS, sorry Curt, you’re going to sit, we have to go with the kid.

I wouldn’t view that as proper managing. You have to keep your team together and keep your promises.

Indefensible.

Every manager pre makes both lineups for a double header in advance of both games. Advance Oreo Westin is definitely not indefensible or a sign of gross negligence. However, I might argue impulse posting lacking in substance might be.

In all seriousness, Iím game for getting Steve some starts. Some pitchers might have a preference at this point and Iíd be looking to set up starts from guys like Antone, Mahle, whom might not have a huge preference at this point, and I expect you will see it happen.

Not sure if thatís the case with Disco, as to begin the day I would have likely preferred Stephenson (who has less platoon splits than Casali) agajnst the righty.

What's really dumb is that Stephenson wasn't starting game 1. But it could be Bauer requested Tucker or something, AND if that were to happen then Ty Steve wouldn't have been available to pinch hit and none of us would be here because the Reds would have lost and we'd all have given up on the season.

So it's really not a big deal.

Starting a player in the second game of a double header because he hit a homer in the first game is what High School managers do, not MLB managers.

For one thing, Casali has actually performed well so far this year, and secondly, it has as much to do with Desclafaniís preparation for the game.

Itís absolutely incredulous that you would make this change in the 11th hour because of one at bat.

I would have started Stephenson in one of the two games today, and Barnhart in the other, subject to comfort/approval from either of the starting pitchers.

The way you are describing how this process works is amateur hour.

Btw, can we decelerate the hype train on Steve as if he isnít the second coming of Johnny Bench?

He opsíd like 780 in AA last year. Casali has 850 in the majors this year.

I like Steve, I loved the moment. He looks the part. But to suggest we need to start pushing people around the clubhouse because this kid homered today is really silly. The starts will come, and itís not likely an Uber material difference in production which one plays today that we need a last second decision.

The same poster had a similar rant about the Reds incompetence on Jose Garcia, only to see him eventually come up hugely overmatched at the plate with a longer sample.

I refuse to decelerate the hype train on Tyler Stephenson.

I will stop short of calling him the second coming of Johnny Bench. I'd settle for Gabby Hartnett or Gary Carter. I'm not picky.

The frustrating part about him is he seems to not get that every pitcher throws him the same. Sliders low and away out of zone. He doesnt adjust at all. If he literally didnt swing he would walk more than strikeout

That actually draws more attention to the silliness of the Garcia thing! Lol

Anyways, RTG, you are a good guy and passionate Reds fan. All in good fun here. Iím a Stephenson fan too, and surprised he wasnít given one of the two games today.

Iím not sure if itís an old school thing, or pitchers getting too comfortable, but I think there is sometimes more going on behind the scenes in transitioning catchers, and might be why they have been slow to give him opportunity despite Barnharts struggles.

Iím with you in looking forward to getting Steve some starts down the stretch, and no question it would be a LOT more fun than watching Barnhart weakly swinging at junk.

Coincidence. He was going to get here anyway this season. Just looks odd because of the timing. He's just too intelligent for it to not have been because of whatever it is that he figured out. Doubt if his approach changed.

Well he definitely has stuck with the more upright power stance. He started it a gave or two prior to benching. So maybe he did figure something out mechanically to go for it more often.

You were dragged for throwing a tantrum over Stephenson not immediately jumping ahead of Casali in line because of the HR he hit like a half hour before the next game started. You did the same with Garcia, and Aquino to a lesser extent. I like these players, particularly Stephenson, but none of them at this point are like a Gavin Lux prospect who is almost GUARANTEED to be a game changer day in and out. At a certain point it just feels like complaining for the sake of complaining, it's not like we aren't going to see a LOT of Garcia and Stephenson moving forward.

Laying off that 2nd pitch, the low fastball that was supposed to be a strike, but he left it out of the strike zone and didn't get the ump to give it to him, set up Moose for the next pitch. Super at-bat there setting up the 3rd pitch. If Moose swings at that 2nd pitch, it goes to 1-1, and he doesn't see a fastball down the middle there, but instead some curveball out of the zone.
