Go Reds!

At Disney World last month, I had my Big Red Machine shirt on and while in line for a ride there was a person with a Cardinals jersey on across the isle. We glared at each other briefly. Mrs. goreds2 smiled and had the look on her face saying please do not start anything. LOL

For audio of this opening day game, it will be on 700wlw.com and iHeart radio app.

I'd prefer Stephenson getting the majority of the playing time behind the dish, but Tucker has earned today.

In the game threads, we have discovered the analytics to discern if a player will be a future mvp or somebody who shouldn't be associated with organized baseball after only one at bat.

The worst part of an error is that it requires the pitcher to get four outs.

If that happens a few times in a game, it can be determinative.

It’s easy to laser focus on Suarez’s gaffe. But Luis wasn’t fooling a soul.

But isn't that one of the main reasons you need a good defense -- to help a pitcher when they are getting hit hard?

Is that a good thing? What happens with India and Moose at that point? I'm not freaking out yet. One inning of one game. This experiment deserves longer than that.

yes, it would be better for the team long term (in my opinion) to get this Suarez experiment ended as soon as possible.
India can get 300-400 abs by backing up infielder, maybe playing a little LF, etc. That's how good teams break in rookies.
