Well, Bruce should be happy.

I think Casali should bat before Garcia, but otherwise looks like a solid lineup against the lefty. Hope the Reds get to him early and often.

Give him a few tries at a long ball. Keuchel coming off injury probably won’t go deep, Shogo will then take over.

Haven't given a run yet, but has cost Bauer quite a few high stress pitches in his pitch count. Bauer may sign with the Reds if he can get a clause that insures Votto doesn't step on the field when he's pitching!

Absolutely no need to slide while catching that ball. Just plain stupid. Keep running to the ball! How can he be such a smart hitter and such an unfocused defender?
Gotta figure out a way to get him off the diamond with Moose at 1b. Probably too later in the year to move Senzel to 2b but i'd be thinking about it for '21. Winker, Shogo, Cast, Goodwin as the 4 outfielders.

it's kind of like legal sports gambling and the legalization of marijuana. it's inevitable. it will happen soon. and everyone will look back on it and say, "why didn't you idiots do this earlier?" automated balls/strikes should have happened at least 10 years ago. it will definitely happen at some point, which will make years like this look stupid in that they were behind the times.

Absolutely. There's needs to be performance metrics applied to the umpires. Set a reasonable standard of acceptable performance (not perfection but a reasonable standard) and those who can't live up to that, should be invited to find another line of work. That's what the rest of us face. That's what the players face. Perform or you're out.

Its been this bad forever. Humans just don't have the ability to judge it, but we are now seeing, with the tech tools how bad it really is, and we have technology to fix it. How often do the line judges miss it in tennis and they only have one line to judge and the ump has 4 of them from only 4' away!

I know he’s done now, but as far as Dallas Keuchel goes I know he’s had a pretty solid career but I have zero respect for those Houston pitchers that sat idly by and watched their offense commit baseball heresy.

Same goes for Morton, McCullers, and especially someone like Verlander who had been so self righteous about cheating.

I had the thought, as soon as the score went to 1-0, that the sox would immediately lift Keuchel, and turn it over to their bullpen, which looked good last night when they were way behind, so they must have some studs when they are ahead!
