I'm excited to see where things stand with Finnegan. Could be a nice piece that no one is counting on.

Interesting to see Cuthbert in the Calculus for 1st base.

There has been a change to the Reds lineup.
Jesse Winker is out with a sore right hip. Mark Payton will take his spot.

Geesh...it is March 1st...if this sores is still lingering by opening day, then we have cause for alarm. Move along, nothing to see here.

If this were anybody but Winker and Senzel, I would agree with you.

Too much running for Winker?

Blandino with an up and down and up first inning.

He walks in the first, but gets thrown out trying to steal 2B to end the top of the inning

He makes an error in the bottom of the inning, but makes a nice play to start a double play to end the bottom of the inning.

Little league triple. A flair inbetween the OF and IF that bounces off the glove of the SS

Finnigan looking less sticky, throwing strikes.

Two clean innings, no hits, no walks, and a strikeout.

Finnegan gets Stephen Piscotty to swing through a 94-mph fastball for his first K of the day.

Well that is very interesting to think we could possibly have a Finnegan in our bullpen.

Probably not. No room at the inn. And he's on a minor league contract. But could be ready in AAA

Based on what Krall said about relievers with options, I wouldn’t get too fixated on the opening day roster.

Noe Ramirez not fooling anyone today. Three batters, a single, a long drive to the wall, and a HR.

Brantley said his velocity was down, below 90 MPH.

A single and a homer given up by Ramirez makes it 4-1 A’s

The second HR is more respectiable, given up to Matt Olson. The first one was to Pete Kozma (ouch)

I don't know what his normal velocity is but that's not too impressive.

Two walks in two at-bats for Strange-Gordon.

He had 32 total walks over his last 1,024 MLB at-bats.

Reds doing that Reds thing where they score once early on and then never again.

Then he reaches his pitch count so they just call the inning and move on.

Early Spring training or not it sure would be nice to see some offense from somebody.

Based on what Krall said about relievers with options, I wouldnt get too fixated on the opening day roster.

Can't see any Starters throwing more than 180 innings, while the top-5 probably average 145 innings. Plenty of opportunity for at least two more Starters who will reach 120 innings, whether that's a combination of starts and relief appearances or just accomplished through starts, though it's more likely the former. With the addition of many 7-inning double-headers, there simply is a need for seven or eight starters who won't stink it up when he gets handed the ball succumbing to pressure because he's too young or failing because he' afraid to pitch inside. Finnegan is neither of these and could deliver 120 innings of quality pitching if he proves himself through Spring Training and April, when he'd be needed the most.

He becomes a great asset if he would walk. But, what pitcher in his right mind not pitch to him?

According to Fangraphs, he has been 89-90 on his FB, 77-78 on his slider and 84-85 on his changeup

All the hitting was done by the replacements

AlfRod 2-2 with homer
Heineman 2-2 with homer
India 1-1 with double.

Heineman played first base today, he’s played some (not much) at first in his career. Plays all OF positions.

He’s a dark horse for the roster as a RHH with defensive versatility. Hit well in the minors.

Or if at AAA could be high on the list for a call up.

Doug has an interview with Sticky Finneganon the paying side. Don't want to reveal too much. But Sticky's added a curve (only threw one). I'd love to have him "back!"

Yeah, maybe he can come up with more than singles.

Brantley noticed the curve as well and spoke well of it.
