Man, even without Winker and Suarez in there I love this lineup.

After all the nitpicking and hand-wringing during offseason and ST now that games are being played and I actually see the real lineup construction .... this team is going to be a problem for opponents alllll year.

Surprised Bell is resting Suarez rather than Votto. Maybe it’s the pitching matchup and he’s waiting for a LHP to rest Joey.

Joey is 37, recently had COVID, played last night. Hope it works out and Joey has a big day. There is an off day tomorrow.

Reds’ lineup isn’t dramatically different from last season. They couldn’t hit last year even at full strength.

It’s a much better approach and probably better luck. More so than the names on the lineup card.

This lineup is going to wear out some pitchers if they keep taking such great at-bats. Even when they hadn't broken through against Martinez in Game 3, they still had his pitch count at like 80 through 4 innings. India and Senzel being healthy reeeeally lengthens this lineup with regards to plate discipline.

Farmer running play there isn’t uncommon.

Senzel was coming home. Farmer got thrown out at second to avoid a play at the plate on Senzel.

Usually unnecessary, overkill, Senzel was scoring anyway. But players on the back side have the instinct to draw the throw and help the runner score.

Brantley says he was hoping to go to 3rd on the throw home, and when the SS didn't throw he planted to go back to 2nd, and slipped. The 1st baseman came to cover 2nd, the SS double clutched and still had time to pick him off. I don't know if the double clutch was because he didn't notice farmer in no mans land, or to wait for Moran's arrival for the tag. I'm watching the Pitt feed, and it didn't show the bag band the arrival of Moran to take the throw and make the tag. Did the Cincy feed show it?

India and Votto fail to execute the smart play that Votto started to try to make on the popped bunt. India stopped hustling to 1B beccause he thought Votto was going to catch it, and when India wasn't there right away to get force at 1st and then the hotbox between 1st and 2nd, he went ahead and took the force at 2nd. Could maybe have even got the DP if he waited for India to get there, but didn't do that. Or maybe Votto knew it was a smart play to drop it, but didn't know the proper way to execute it for a DP, and was only trying to replace a fast runner on first with a pitcher!

I think he was trying to get the runner out at 2nd so that you had the pitcher at first. I don't think a double play was ever part of the plan.

It makes a big difference having India there in the middle infield. Moose was solid there, India is a clear upgrade, and Moose is better at 3B anyway.

Not sure what they'll do next year but hopefully the DH will help resolve it.

I think Moose and Cast both bring some clubhouse intangibles this team was really missing, especially that 2019 team that seemed to constantly roll over. Seemed like it took a month or so for it gel last season in 2020 and I’m willing to bet they would’ve gotten even more of that had it been a regular length season.
