Is this a "must win" game?

May Luis' pitches seem invisible and Reds hitters see beach balls.

Barnhart instead of Casali? When Castillo and Casali had been on a good roll.
It is not like Tucker can out hit Casali. Got to forget the LHB vs. the RHP at least I believe so.
Hope Tucker can make me eat my words and have a huge game.

Reds are 2-13 in their last 15 playoff games (counting 1999). So, the law of averages would seem to be in the Reds' favor.

Apparently the Casali decision is he is dealing with a sore wrist so that is why he is not playing today. He is available but outside an emergency situation you probably won't see Casali in this series again

If he's hurt, they should say he's hurt so that we can replace him with Stephenson. There's no point in having a wounded Casali taking up a roster spot if a healthy Stephenson is available.

That 2 was the first 2 they won in SF, and then came home to needing just one win in 3 chances, and failed, like they failed yesterday to get a single run in with several good chances. Ask the Twins how the law of averages worked out for them! They blew it in the first inning of the first game just like the Reds did yesterday.

Castillo needs a solid start in the first for confidence. He also needs to be efficient. High pitch count will be danger sign especially in light of the number of hurlers used yesterday. Mahle and Antone are there.

They might want more seasoning for him.

I'd take James McCann in free agency, or a trade for a guy like Salvador Perez. Anything but Barnhart.

The Reds offense can load the bases, then it runs out of steam. Tucker actually has a decent batting average with bases loaded but that must have been early in his career. Tucker, Casalis, Farmer and to a lesser extent Galvis and some others are what end these rallies.

JFLegal
10-01-2020, 01:52 PM
galvis walks on 4 pitches. another walk would bring in a run.

tucker barnhart: "how about i swing at the first pitch i see, one that is nowhere near the zone."

just another example of the reds being a dumb team. if barnhart is not smart enough to take for a strike there, he needs to be given the take sign. he is an automatic out.

you have a rookie on the mound who just walked the previous guy on four pitches. you put him in a 1-0 hole in the count, it might get to his head.
