When the right hander comes in, he'll be replaced by Akiyama, and that's an appropriate place for him.

I imagine when they knock the lefty out of the game and bring in a righty, Shogo will replace a.a.
Also I believe Aquino’s obp is pretty good.

And since Aquino may not last the whole game, give him a few at bats to launch one. So don’t bury him in the lower part of the order.

Nick Castellanos has tied Jerry Hairston Jr. for 26th place among players of Hispanic heritage on the Reds' all-time home run list.

Hairston's grandfather, Sam Hairston, was one of the first African-American players in Chicago White Sox history, and his father, Jerry Hairston Sr., was an OF for the Chisox during two stints in the 70's and 80's. Between those two stints, Jerry Sr. played for three years in the Mexican League, where he met his wife (and Jerry Jr.'s mother).

It's not perfect, but xBA calculates every struck ball since Statcast was implemented in 2015 and compares it on a ton of stuff including sprint speed, type of batted ball, exit velo, launch angle, hit angle.

It's not just "that's an unlucky hit". Balls hit like that to that spot since 2015 have only been hits 28% of the time. It's probably more of an indicator of Votto's decresed range at first.

For me it’s an aggregate thing you look at the team level over a long period of time to gauge true talent level.

Like bapip, I’m a game to game, it’s kind of meaningless. Like I sit her and try to watch the game and not worry so much about game to game luck... just causes analysis paralysis.

Leadoff double to start the bottom of the 4th

He homered against us earlier this season, I believe. Was it against Gray?

Dan Vogelbach aka Lyle Schwarber? He’s been in Seattle most of the season. You may be thinking of Justin Smoak

When I posted that, I left it up to interpretation. Mine was "Votto could have got to that" but I had no idea if the shift was on so I just left it open.

If anything, I'm starting to believe less and less that stats like BABIP and xBA are indicators of luck and more indicative of defensive ability for both your team and opponents.

How do u guys feel about Bauer getting the start tomorrow on 3 days rest?
Each game left is just as important as the next, so why push it?
Win or lose tomorrow, our chances are strong with Milwaukee and St Louis playing the 5 game set to end the season and hopefully just beat up on each other.

I would try to set it up so that Bauer pitches the single-elimination game, should it be one or to try to set up our rotation for a series should we get to one, but first things first. Clinch a playoff spot. Don't like the 3 days rest at this time.
