I have more confidence that the Reds will do better against Houser than I was against Anderson last night.

Aquino against a righty is interesting. Sign of no confidence in Senzel or Goodwin right now?

Offense over CF defense.

Probably good idea, hope it works.

Just speculating here, but Goodwin and Senzel faltered in important AB's last night. Senzel twice. Senzel definitely doesn't look the same post Covid. His bat was super quick in the zone earlier in the year.

I get that Aquino provides that pop the others don't, but he looked pretty awful last night sans the first inning error. He lunges at pitches often. Personally, I would have started Shogo against the lefty. He's just too pesky hitting in front of the big boys. I also would have pinch hit Shogo against Williams instead of Goodwin which was a huge AB in the game.

This game is pretty much the season. With the tie breaker rules a loss here drastically reduces our chances of getting in. If we lose we’re talking about having to sweep the Twins and hoping everyone else loses every game. That’s a little exaggeration but not far off.

Exactly this.

We've been saying "this is a must win game" every day for weeks now, so it might be overstated.

But I really think this is that game. I think the loser of this game might be going home after the weekend.

Aquino didn't look much better at the plate and also made a bad play in the OF.

If it were my choice, I'd have AA out, Winker in the field and Galvis or Farmer DH'ing.

09-23-2020, 03:18 PM
Farmer is a bad hitter.

His only use is versitily, there's way more upside in starting...anybody else...at DH.

I know this seems like a must win, but if the Reds lose this one, and win 2 out of 3 from the Twins, they finish at .500 which gives them a solid shot at the final wild card spot.

Will be tough since they will lose most tiebreakers.

My guess is, in that situation, that the Brewers and Cards get second division spot and the first wild card, so it’s just between the Reds and Giants for the last wild card spot. I have no idea what the tiebreaker situation is with the Giants, and it could change between now and then.

Frankly, if they can't pull out a win tonight, at home with a legit Cy Young candidate pitching for them against something called Adrian Houser, I don't think they belong in the playoffs.

It's a big game and the Reds have almost every conceivable advantage.

Gotta hope the wind is carrying out because they won't manufacture runs. We'll only score via the HR, and we need to be ahead after 6. Williams and Hader made these guys look like middle schoolers yesterday and we have no reason to believe those guys won't be available today if circumstances warrant.

Biggest game we've seen in many years around here.

Cards five with the Brewers will have a big say in all this.

If either of those teams dominate that series, the other will likely fall out.

That could help Reds too, although winning 2 more games certainly is important.

Giants have won 16 division games and have 6 left. They’d have to win 4 of those to beat us. Not sure what happens if we end up tied at 19 with them. They have 4 against SD so I think they’re not going to play into it anyway.

AL will play in Dodger stadium or San Diego

Right. I don't see any issue with that. There are no fans anyway, so it doesn't really matter.

Not specifically, no. But there is talk of allowing fans for the LCS and WS match-ups and if that comes to be, people in those areas might have more interest in their league for the LCS.

They want to avoid a team playing in their own park, especially if they were the lower seed. There will be plenty of demand for tickets considering it will most likely be under 20% of capacity.
