18 years ago, in a 14 - 6 win over the Expos, David Bell became the seventh player in Phillies history to hit for the cycle. The Philadelphia third baseman joined his grandfather Gus Bell (1951) as the only grandson and grandfather combination to accomplish the feat.

This is from the article I posted this morning in the Reds Offense 2022 thread in the ORG forum



Over the last three years, the Reds have restructured the Reds’ front office, aligned the Reds’ scouting vision with their player development vision and sought out more athletic, versatile position players with more well-rounded approaches at the plate.

Since these changes started to take place around 2019, the Reds are seeing the payoff in High-A Dayton and in Double-A Chattanooga with impressive prospects like Matt McLain, Michael Siani, Elly De La Cruz, Allan Cerda, Jose Torres, Jay Allen, Rece Hinds, Austin Hendrick and Mat Nelson.

When you make massive changes to the way you structure your farm system, it takes time for those prospects to trickle up to MLB.

They don't swing at every pitch. The wait until there is 2 strikes and then swing at a pitch way out of the strike zone. And the Reds analysts will then tell all of us in the listening audience, it's hard to hit a baseball. This is and has been the Reds way for a long time. Give Donovan Solano another month or so and his .278 career average will be about .220.

The only hitting coach I saw that got players to buy into taking more pitches. Working counts. Was Chris Chambliss.
The issue is not having enough players who do that on their own or know how to. Dunn. Hatteburg. Votto. Winker. Pham. They have the skill and will to do it.

But in the decades of the 70's, 80's , and 90's , there were a total of nine(9) pitchers from either the Reds or Cubs who lead the NL in saves. Six were Reds; three were Cubs . How many can you name ???

Almora is the best CF, but I think Senzel is not good in corner OF spots and has never played there, or is bad because he has never had the opportunity to learn the corners.

Older guy having a career year for half a year. I'm not against signing him. But not for much or no more than 2 years. Big no on a overpay.
He's probably a platoon guy on really good clubs. He may be dealt soon to platoon for a contender.

He is finally showing signs of life last week with the bat.
I pretty much wrote him off. With his luck he will start mashing the ball get hurt and be done for the year.
Yes he messed up in the OF there. But he has been really good out there overall. Zero complaints on his defense.

Senzel did not mess up.

Almora came over from RF and was closest to the ball. At that point, he should have just caught it.

Schrock probably would make a good pinch hitter. But with the DH now. The pinch hitter is needed way less.
He belongs in another ERA.

Senzel is an aggressive player. On that play, if he was too aggressive there would have been a collision.

Once Almora came into the CF area, he should have just caught the ball.

Both Senzel and Almora are CFers so sometimes they impede each other.

Indeed. I'll give you a hint. Reds drafted him in something like the 10th or 11th round, signed him for three thousands bucks in 1989 , left him unprotected in the '92 expansion draft, where the Marlins grabbed him. He developed a devastating changeup that carried him to seven All-Star apperances , 601 career saves, and a plaque in Cooperstown. GREAT JOB, REDLEGS!!! "HELLS BELLS !!!"
