So the Reds submitted the roster for this series: Matt Davidson and Travis Janikowski were included. Desclafani and Sal Ramano were left off for this series.

So 12 pitchers and 16 position players on the roster for this series

castellanos is one of our 2 worst hitters? he's been in a slump, but he's streaky. it's time he gets on a hot streak.

CySeymour
09-30-2020, 10:18 AM
Surprised it's not Aquino leading off since Senzel really hasn't got it going since he's returned. I wonder if there was something in the analytics that drove having Nick leadoff today.

He survived the last 1 and a half months without him.

He's a pinch runner and maybe defender if they have a big lead.

Dont think we will see him brought in with a 1 run lead or a tight came in place of a real offensive player that may be needed.

I didn't know Jankowski and Davidson were still in the organization. Ignorance definitely was bliss.

If they're used here, I hope Jankowski is a terror on the basepaths and Davidson hits an important HR. But I'd also be okay if they just do a great job of cheering for their teammates.

CaiGuy
09-30-2020, 10:30 AM
I was kinda hoping for Ty Steve as a RH bat off the bench/emergency catcher that makes it easier for Casali to PH for Barnhart in a critical moment.

I would have brought Tyler Stevenson back up instead of Davidson. Just as likely to run into one as a righty off the bench...could use either catcher as a pinch hitter with Stevenson on the bench and more comfortable behind the plate than Farmer.

Correlation doesn't mean causation here, but the Reds went 13-5 after they DFA'd Davidson and brought up Stevenson.

It's more than a slump. Last 28 days, 26 games .177/.225/.354/.580
Teams have stopped throwing him strikes after that super hot start.

Not eligible b/c of 10-day rule after he was optioned. Could return for next round.


Greg Borchers @GregBorchers

Is he on the taxi squad? Playoff roster rules usually have cut outs for catchers.



Mark Sheldon

He’s eligible to return for this series if there’s an injury.

So then, they never intended to include him on the playoff roster.

It's kind of a toss-up. Disco has not looked right for much of the season, might be that he is not healthy. Stephenson probably won't see any work but could have an outside shot at a spot in next-year's bullpen.

Disagree. Even when he's been mixed in vs lefties lately he has looked quite overmatched. Has trouble getting his swing even on pitches coming from that angle. I mean, he could get better, but he wasn't given time to really try to get better, and kind of too late now. Dude has a .499 OPS vs. lefties. Its completely crossing your fingers that he can right the ship on that, TODAY.

Senzel should have more of a fighting chance, and part of having him leadoff is for Shogo to take that spot vs. a righty later on in the game when it inevitably happens.

Bieber was fairly dominant vs the White Sox twice, and Twins twice. A bit of a narrative being built there cherry picking the one big game.

I'm not feeling real good about this lineup. I get sitting Garcia due to inexperience, but has Kyle Farmer really had enough reps to be starting a playoff game? Senzel and Cast have to turn their recent luck around and get on base. Hopefully both surprise me.

Yes Fried is through 2 inning on only 24 pitches. They talked like they hoped to get 5 innings out of him today if the Reds keep helping by swinging early he will go longer
