It is the slumping Pirates, but this was the type of game the team would always find a way to lose earlier in the year.

I've seen the Reds players smile more on the field more in the last week than the rest of the season combined. In July and August, they were throwing stuff in the dugout, breaking bats over their knees, looking grumpy. Winning will do that, but you wonder if it's not something else.

This is a completely different team since Votto came back and stopped choking up.
They could easily be leading the Central if not for some HORRIBLE give away losses.

I’m down for some baseless speculation.

No really, I am!

I’m happy, but I’m not counting any chickens yet.
It was.... 4 games at home vs the Pirates after all.
But I’m intrigued!

They finally got to stop hearing Matt Davidson's theories about the real truth about COVID-19 and started winning.

I think it's the feel good remedy of getting to play the Pirates 8 times within 2 weeks.

I swear ever since it was either Cowboy or Welsh talked about how he needed to stop doubting his stuff and just go after dudes with his stuff, Iggy has changed.
Add Danny Graves to saying that a few nights ago.

It's still impressive.

Even if generally speaking you give the Pirates a 33 percent chance of winning each game (and that's probably low)....that still gives the Reds just a 1 in 5 chance of a sweep.

They discovered that the true treasure was not the World Series championship, but the friends they were making along the way?

I was meaning to ask you, it seemed like you had that question well in advance of the broadcast.

Is there a place where those are posted?

I was never a good enough baseball player but I was pretty good at basketball. And Iíd have games where I couldnít miss. Everything I put up, I didnít think it was going in, I *knew* it was going in. I tried not to think about it because once I thought about it, it went away. So you have to respect the streak.

Who are the starting SS for the first Reds playoff team in 15 years, a 100 Million dollar worthy SS, the greatest Reds 3B of our generation, a flea, and a guy who should be leading the AL in BA but his manager doesn't play him (found that out today).

A guy learns a lot on this website.

Didn't want to join the thread late during the game and jinx it, so I waited until we won.

Good decision.

GO REDS!!!

I would have lost a lot of money betting against Suarez playing SS in 96 games and 3B once in 2015. Do not remember that.

IIRC, when we traded for Suarez he was a sure-handed shortstop with some potential in his bat.

My how that scouting report flipped.

Dude hit the gym and changed his profile. It really was quite the dramatic shift to watch unfold in front of our eyes.

Nevermind here it is, there were some doubts that he could stick at shortstop:


Suarez is slight of frame but displays a compact, line-drive-oriented swing. The 23-year-old possesses decent plate discipline, logging no more than a 19.9 percent strikeout rate in any full season at the minor league level.

Suarez isn't going to wow anybody at the plate, and it would be surprising to see him continue to hit as well as we've seen at any minor league level—he has a career .278 minor league average (.288 in 2014). However, it's very possible he could outhit Zack Cozart.

While his offensive game might be enough to get him a job as the team's starting shortstop over the light-hitting Cozart, his defensive game will certainly need some work. In 81 games played at shortstop last season, Suarez was worth a disappointing minus-five defensive runs saved.

What I see in Suarez, though, is a player who has a solid feel for the middle of the infield and the ability to turn a double play quickly from both sides of the bag.

I'm a believer that Pythag record gives a good back of the napkin future win expectancy.

The Reds are actually outplaying their pythag record (24-27) by a game.

Mets and Giants would be WC teams based on pythag. Reds/Brewers would be out. Just an observation.

Can you trust Pythag record with a short season like this?

Phillies losing. Reds would be a half game back of the 7th playoff spot if that holds.

You don't remember all the calls to get rid of him an account of his errors at short? lol

Ya I donít buy Pythag this early on pure talent level. A lot of luck underneath driving the variables that I would say underrate the Reds offense.

Pythag should coincide pretty well with who actually makes the playoffs, but not really on who deserves to make the playoffs.

Curt Casali on Raisel Iglesias in the 9th inning: "I thought those were some of the nastiest sliders I've ever seen him throw. ... He was just throwing side-winding, spinning frisbees." #Reds

Castillo and Casali have been particularly in sync with each other. In five starts together, Castillo has a 1.32 ERA, compared to a 5.33 ERA when Tucker Barnhart is behind the plate for him.

One could see why Castillo would have a preference in catcher at this stage of the season.

Love when these forecasts are wrong.

"Suarez isn't going to wow anybody at the plate".

So don't expect anything crazy like 49 home runs. :laugh:
