Smart baserunning. Are we sure that Galvis is on the Reds?

Galvis is a pretty good player, but with age he’s a little slow for shortstop.

He’s not the terrible, miserable, worthless player some on here would have it.

Some Statcast fun:

Aquino's ball was the hardest hit ball of the day at 107.6, obviously.

A 428 foot monster.

That is a hit...98% of the time.

HOW IS THAT NOT ALWAYS A HIT?!

Two great add on runs, to get back up by 5, making the Sox take some lumps as a consequence for leaving Detwiler in the game!

I know Iíve spoken on it til Iím blue in the face, and everyone here is prob tired of seeing me post about it complaining, but just imagine that bat in the lineup, every single day... day after day... from day 1?
Iím sorry, but whoever made that decision was so wrong itís hard to even explain.
The Reds really dropped the ball there.

Those guys really didnít play all that much though, itís just felt excruciatingly long because of how little they hit.

I donít think anyone ever thought Aquino shouldnít play over those guys, but only Bruce has specifically said which guys in the actually OF rotation he would have benched for Aquino (all of them, basically).

I'd like for the Reds to make more post-hype prospect trades, especially on the pitching side with our new development staff.

Lucas Sims cost us a pre-monster Adam Duvall.

We can trade guys like that all day.

I donít think anyone ever thought Aquino shouldnít play over those guys, but only Bruce has specifically said which guys in the actually OF rotation he would have benched for Aquino (all of them, basically).

When Senzel was on the IL, there was a spot for Aquino. More importantly, with a 28 player roster, there was room for Aquino and the scrubs they added.

So today they have enough runs that your don't have to expend your best right away. So pitching yesterday would have not compromised the staff and would have given them a day off going into tomorrows critical series with the Brewers. So you can never tell Kal.

Win the game at hand, the one you are playing today

The Aquino 2 run HR allowed Sims to be able to bow his back, and get out of his own jam, and be stellar after he either lost focus, or erred in strategy on the first two hitters of the inning, the 8 and 9 hitters!

Really hard to understand why the Reds were so down on Aquino this season. Even with a lousy OBP, that power deserves playing time.

They would have been monitoring his progress all season and working with him.

Itís not inconceivable that if AA had been brought up earlier he might have struggled big time.

I don't give the offense a ton of credit for this series. They were handed this one today, and faced some pretty lowly pitching in Game 1.

But all the credit in the word to the pitching staff. They neutralized a deadly offense at full strength. And it was largley done by the bottom of the rotation.

Amazing series.

But it seems to me that it’s more conceivable that he would have hit 10+ HR’s had he been in the majors most of the season.
