Iíd have snuck Winker and Shogo in there just to get some reps vs a junk throwing lefty cause you know thatís coming their way in the playoffs.

2 off days in a row so rest isnít a big concern.

They will be in as soon as Hill is out.

Which negates getting reps vs a lefty.

I just know there will be a tough lefty matchup for those guys in the playoffs where it is inopportune to PH for them. Give them a few ABs today vs Hill for some real game practice.

SD is probably the best opponent but really I'm fine with it being ATL or CHC either.

I'd just like to finish above .500 and see them take yet another series from a really good team.

I never like to put too put emphasis on one game but yeah, today’s results will determine whether some posters are handed a golden ticket to preen “Bell couldn’t even get these guys over over .500” for the next 6 months.

They have them -- the BRM uniforms (either in button-up or pullover versions) were worn from 1969 through 1992. They also have vintage sleeveless alternates from the late 50's and early 60's.

They have just chosen not to embrace them.

If he can survive the roster crunch, he has an option and can spend all of 2021 in AAA trying to fix what teams figured out about him in Sept. Even in Winter League ball he was an automatic out. (I kinda still doubt that winter league happens this year)

Nope... League started figuring him out last Sept. By the end of the year, word spread throughout all of baseball. Was a disaster in Winter ball before the Reds even saw him again. Was a disaster in Spring training. That when the Reds started trying to fix him.

They say when they figure you out, you have to adjust back. He hasn't been able to do it. If he can survive the roster cuts, he has all year to work on it in AAA. But right now he looks to be one of the greatest asterisks in baseball history.

That was a 10 game period last year. And in the next 10 games, he was fine, with a near .800 OPS.

It is faulty analysis to draw conclusions from 10 games. It is even worse to draw conclusions from as few games in spring training.

Couldn’t you also argue that it’s faulty analysis to think he’s anything special when his entire minor league career before 2019 was mediocre? Then, with a juiced ball, he suddenly figured it out?

1. I specifically said he wasn’t special, just possibly decent.

SF Giants now trailing 5-1. Phils trailing by 5.

Looks like Cards and Brewers may fill out the playoff spots.

Brewers may get 8th spot even by losing. Four Central teams could be among 8 NL playoff group.

1. I specifically said he wasn’t special, just possibly decent.
2. He put up solid numbers in rookie ball and single A, well over .800 OPS
3. The ball wasn’t juiced. It was the same ball they use in the majors.
4. Tie Game!

Reds have had enough decent over the years. Enough of decent.

Not at shortstop. Reds obviously don’t think Freddy can handle shortstop now. They like Farmer’s defense better.

If Galvis comes back it will be utility mostly playing second base.

Whether they succeed, who knows.

I don’t see Galvis as the type hitter they need, but he’s a good player so he’ll wind up somewhere, if not with the Reds.

I look at the NL and see LA, ATL, CIN and MIL as the teams that have the best chance of going to the WS.

Milwaukee can severely shorten a game with Williams/Hader in the pen. Buehler is starting Game 1 for LA and itís not like he has been dependable.

I do think Milwaukee has the pitching parts to contend but it will take some creativity.

Aquino had over 2,900 PAs in 779 minor league games. He’s been with the Reds organization since 2011. You really think the problem is Reds’ “fixes?”

Like many hitters he has a good power tool but not much of a hit tool. So he moves on. Maybe he’ll figure it out later on someday.
